Photograph to Point Cloud with ELlipser App in CloudCompare

Post by 3DForensics » Mon Aug 21, 2017 3:51 pm

Hello All,

It has been far too long since I posted something but this is a very short video tutorial on a new feature in the ELipser App which is packaged in CloudCompare. This App allows you to scale a photographic image and then turn it into a point cloud for export. So, if you were to take a flat photograph (i.e. perpendicular shot) of a piece of evidence on glass or a floor, you get the benefit of a high resolution image and then you can register it to a point cloud.

Instructions are in this video...hopefully you might find a use for it one day.
