I been playing with photogrammetry solutions a few years back, but it never stick with me. Perhaps it was too much work for less of a demand in my case, but you got to check out this new opensource project by Lukas Mach named insight3d.
What is cool about it is it is opensource and free… this is always nice, and it seems to work rather well from what I gather and the tutorial posted by Lukas. If you do check it out let us know what you think. I’ll try to use it on a current studio project and share the results with you.
insight3d lets you create 3D models from photographs. You give it a series of photos of a real scene (e.g., of a building), it automatically matches them and then calculates positions in space from which each photo has been taken (plus cameras optical parameters) along with a 3D pointcloud of the scene. You can then use insight3ds modeling tools to create textured polygonal model. insight3d.sourceforge.net
