This is amazing! Please tell us, What programs where used to create these amazing animations?
I am continuing development on WorldKit as a solo endeavor now. Progress is a bit slower as I've had to take a more moderate approach to development hours. I took a short break following the failure of the commercial launch, and now I have started up again, but I've gone from 90 hour work weeks to around 40 or 50 hour work weeks. See my longer reply on the future of WorldKit here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAYgW5JfCQw&lc=UgxtXVCCULAyzrzAwvp4AaABAg.8swLeUjv7Fb8swt1875FAT I am hard at work with research and code, and am not quite ready to start the next fund-raising campaign to open-source, so I've been quiet for a while. I hope to have a video out on the new features in the next few weeks.
Someone please create open source world creator already in C/C++.
SideFX has presented a free plugin for Houdini which implements the open-source AliceVision photogrammetry framework inside the popular tool. The plugin, downloadable via SideFX’s Game Development Toolset, allows users to launch image-based modeling jobs within Houdini and have the 3D model appear directly in the Houdini viewport.
The framework creates textured 3D meshes from sets of photographs of real-world objects, exporting the geometry in OBJ format. Then, intermediate point cloud data can be exported in Alembic format, and depth maps as EXR files.
Unlike Reality Capture, AliceVision is free, but you need a new Nvidia GPU to use it as it uses CUDA for GPU processing.
You can learn more and get the plugin here.
