i focus on the composition and framing of my images and the silhouettes of my objects more than on the quality or complexity of the models or materials. http://geometrydashfree.com/

hello Alexander, I really loved your these draw works. I loved cathedrals too.I started 3ds Max new. And I really really want to meet you, if you wanna to do. By the way, my name is Duacan, from Turkey. also Im working for learning and speaking German. Cause Deutschland is the my first country for living. Whatever, take care yourself, Tschüss. insta: 06optimusprime06

nice blog but here is the thing, what is wrong with overlaping uv's and mirroring them, what are the cons of overlapping them and why is this method better in the case of uv? thanks

Zephyr 3.5: Reconstruct 3D Models From Photos
13 November, 2017

If you work with photogrammetry, you’ve probably heard about 3DF Zephyr. It’s a very cool automatic tool, which stitches together hundreds of photos into a full 3d model. Here’s a little video, that shows the process.

A couple of days ago this software got a very nice update 3.500, which is detailed in the official press release.

What’s new in this release?

This release focused in merging major technology improvements that have been developed for a while in our office. With the addition of our hyperplane matching technology in our MvS pipeline, 3DF Zephyr is now even more accurate than ever. The same can be said about our texturing algorithm, that has been improved a lot as well as other many internal optimizations.

3DF Zephyr is the complete photogrammetry software solution, and with v3.500, it’s even more complete than ever!

As usual, we also improved our existing tools and added a lot of new important features as well: being able to export texture in exr/tiff has been one of the most requested features in the last few months, and we’re happy to have that too in v.3500!

Other tools worth mentioning are the fan-favourite frames extraction from video (that has been improved witha better UI), a new shader system (you can also write your own shaders, too!), full unicode support, the possibility to add a camera via control points (Pro/Aerial only) and much, much more!

The full changelog of Zephyr 3.500 is the following:

• Structure from Motion improvements

• Multiview stereo significant improvements

• Added Hyperplane matching

• MVS Final voting phase speed-up

• Texturing improvements

• New shader system with custom shader editor for mesh and textured meshes

• Improved frames extraction from video

• Improved 4k UI support

• Added 4k video export support

• Added manual orient single camera from 3 control points (3DF Zephyr Pro and 3DF Zephyr Aerial Only)

• Added orthophoto generation in tiles (Pro/Aerial only)

• Added kmz – LOD export

• Added Full Unicode support (also file loading and object names)

• Added CAD drawing from a single image (3DF Zephyr Aerial Only)

• Added drawing elements layers (3DF Zephyr Aerial Only)

• Added drawing elements import from txt (3DF Zephyr Aerial Only)

• Added polyline drawing preview in 3D window (3DF Zephyr Aerial Only)

• Added revit plugin (experimental) (3DF Zephyr Aerial Only)

• Added Autopath creation from all cameras in animation

• Added experimental bundle adjustment with terrain assumption (3DF Zephyr Aerial Only)

• Added two new point cloud filters (noise/distance, plane fitting)

• Texture can now be generated and exported in 16bit (exr) or 32bit (tiff) 

You can get the full list of updates here on the official website.
