    Smile Tutorial: Generating quick game geometry from simple photographs!

    Wanted to share a quick pipeline process I found recently using Zbrush and Autodesk's Photofly. Using a digital camera, Zbrush and Photofly you can create quick highly detailed game geometry extreamly fast. The first images show some of the test examples I have created. The youtube links are to the HD versions of the tutorial Videos.

    Great tutorial BUT you should have explained more about the camera you used, the camera settings and camera techniques you used to take the photos otherwise it's hard to know if the technique can be done with a normal camera and settings or not. Also, an idea about how many photos should be taken for a good level of reconstruction would be good (at least a minimum amount).

    mix_mash, your post wasn't directed to me, BUT...

    I think Piggyson, did his bit here.

    It took me exactly 30 seconds to go to the Photofly website and be directed to this youtube tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YNrQA6eofI

    Personally I think producing 4 videos in both regular and HD versions is enough for one free (and EXCELLENT) tutorial from any forum member here.
