  1. Pretty cool. I would think one can do this all with Blender as well.
    Video the area, and use motion tracker to set up track points, then create the mesh from that.

  2. This is brilliant! I love the lego step. The almost perfect color matching is phenomenal.
    You could do this all in open-source software. To create a point cloud of the subject, use PPT-GUI (; Meshlab to create a mesh from the points; export to Blender. I'm not sure how one would get the new mesh to fit so perfectly with the original. Booleans? Snapping?

    • I'm so happy that there's an open-source option to the photo-to-point-cloud program. I don't have $3500 to shell out for the paid software. But there is a little problem... How would I get it to work on Mac? Will the python script work even on a non-windows system?
