Absolutely Fascinating. Its fantastic to see how scan data is being used away from what might be considered "the norm" of plant/architectural/heritage e.t.c although I imagine that this too is becoming a requirement in VFX!

Thanks for posting this Phil, and to Craig for taking the time to record it!!

Also, Craig, if you have Internet access while on set - its possible to log into your existing licences remotely (as long as they are floating). We have had a server set up in my mums house for going on 8 years now so that we can all work remotely from our own houses! (although i appreciate this *may* be slightly challenging on some set locations!!)

Regards,

Tim

Cheers for posting this Phil, it made for fascinating (if somewhat sad!) Sunday evening viewing.

I'm off to read up more on Topogun now! That looks like a nifty bit of software.
Edit: Wow at that price I might even stump for a copy at home to play with! :o

Thank you for sharing that, it was a pleasure to view.

What an incredible amount of software is used to get the scan to where you want it!
I'd imagine there are others who would further process the data too?
Sir! We are surrounded on all sides! Excellent, we can attack from any direction.

Thanks guys. Glad you enjoyed it. Starting to get some ideas together for an upcoming video (schedule permitting).

Happy scanning!

Yeah, sounds like a good idea, but I sometimes find myself in places where the internet can be an issue. Sometimes lucky if we have hot & cold running water.

Was scanning Kidbrooke village yesterday. Passed through Sidcup on my way back to the coast. Had I known you guys were there, I would have popped in for a coffee.

Maybe will do just that, a week on Friday

Great Video! I noticed that even Craig Crane uses the demo version of Geomagic and @ 8 grand a copy I understand. If only Cyclone could do a good job converting a unified cloud into a poly mesh.
