Topic: Video Upload & 3D -> CAD

Hi in there
I was wondering if it would be possible to upload videos in the future. Videos are not more as many pictures/sec :) so what better source should be there to create an ultimative Synth? I mean in times of FULL-HD camcoder, why not, the quallity should fit. Eventually the continous picture stream helps the algorythem to build an ultimative 3D particle environment, i mean that is everything an engineer is dreaming of. Run filming around an object and lets create an 3D modell instandly, giving the programm sidelength of the orginal and lets calculate the "Rest" :). Then the 3D-partikle-view is transformed into simple shapes and exportet to CAD. Imagine what would be possible and how construction and development would speed up... . I mean Photosynth has really potential for MORE for BIG stuff like this, to speed up Research/Development/Construction from exponential times to nearly linear times ... linear as a vertical line in the graph :)

Yeah, that would be very cool. And much faster than taking 300 photos :D

Uploading videos directly is certainly one idea but you can already do this yourself. This synth was done by grabbing every 10 or so frame of some rather poor quality videos not originally intended for this purpose together with some stills. If you are patient and look around you will see you are quite correct. I plan to try with stills extracted from a better quality video.
