This was my very first trial with Photogrammetry; the art of converting photos into a 3D model.
So I took a tangerine from the fridge, my Yi M1 Camera and my photo studio box. For this to work, I took around 50 photos of the tangerine. Not long after shooting the photos, my significant other ate the tangerine.
I adjusted and exported the RAW image photos in Darktable and let Meshroom process the photos into a 3D Mesh file. Blender helped me out cleaning up the mesh mess.
Since Meshroom only created the diffuse image texture, I was missing some image textures to render it more realistically. Therefore I used Materialize of Bounding Box Software, to create a roughness map and a normal map.
Then I loaded all the files in Maverick Render and created a render of this tangerine.
I did add some ants to the render, since we have so many of them walking around the house lately…
- AliceVision – Meshroom, for Photogrammetry
- Blender for Mesh Cleanup
- Bounding Box Software – Materialize, for Texture Creation
- Maverick Render as the Render Engine
- Darktable for adjusting and exporting the RAW photos
- Affinity Photo for 2D editing (Post Processing and Texture Editing)
