Perfect Photo and Camera Match with fSpy and Blender 2.79


Chipp Walters offers a free course on how to use the new fSpy to do perfect photo matching WITH accurate dimensions.

Hey guys, thought you might like this.

Here's a great free course on how to use the cross platform freeware application fSpy from the kind and generous Per Gantelius to help you create an exact camera setting from an existing photograph. This process is called camera matching, and his application fSpy will provide the settings which can then be transferred to any 3D application.

You can then use the free fSpy addon to import directly the settings, including the picture as well!

I've broken the tutorial up into a few different parts:

  • Video 1  introduces fSpy, how to download and install, and talks about the different types of perspectives you're likely to encounter while providing a basic understanding of each of them.
  • Video 2  shows you how to use fSpy with a one-point perspective photo, and then how to import those settings directly into Blender 2.79.
  • And Video 3  shows how to use fSpy with a three-point perspective photo and import into Blender using correct dimensions.

Why would you use fSpy?

There are quite a number of reasons you might want to use a camera matching program.

  1. You want to try and work on your lighting chops to make sure you get your lighting as close as real as possible.
  2. You want to figure out the sizes and scales of objects in a photo.
  3. You want to change a room or building design and need the photo to match the scale, size and positioning.
  4. You want to photo bash your 3D object into an existing scene.
