3d Scan with Camera

3D Scan with Camera

3D Scan with camera process is another way people can refer to photogrammetry. Some vendors use a single camera and others use multi-camera systems.

While data can still be gathered using a single digital camera, this is not a viable option in case of dynamic subjects such as live people, due to the fact that people tend to move ever so slightly. The discrepancy in captured data point alignment of a live subject can amount to a photo set which cannot be aligned and converted into a 3d model. Therefore we must use a multi-camera rig, such as the one we make available to our clients through our 3d scanning service.

The 3d Scanning System at the Scanlab contains 132 cameras and allows us to 3d scan live actors, and their facial expressions within a timeframe of a micro-second.
