Making a 3D Model From a Photosynth

There’s an interesting video on YouTube from Binary Millenium showing how to make a 3D model out of real objects using Microsoft’s Photosynth. It’s an interesting idea that while unofficial, may be a big time saver and a lot of fun for many of you.

This will work best if you use a Photosynth that not only has a high rate of ‘synthiness’ but also tons of points in the point cloud. A point in the point cloud means that a specific feature in two more photos has been identified allowing for Photosynth to some degree determine where in space that point exists. While a good Photosynth might have 100% synthiness, meaning all the pictures were connected, it doesn’t necissarily mean there will be lots of points in the point cloud.
