    Yipster, try putting a little spun into the coffe. Objects having small variations from different angles are dificult to understand by the software. Objects that look different from small angle variations are easier to translate to 3D. Pay attention to Demo video, it has many good tips on taking good pictures.
    Also, pictures having different amounts of light and/or too much shade are a problem.
    Come on guys, try it on some nautical thing and let us see your work!:D

    ok, read part of the tut's, try'd some sample files and played another half hour with the program but there is still more to learn. searched this forum becouse there was a tread somewhere how this photometry and rhino works together with good info on what nautical use it can have like volume calculation and more but cant remember all and cant find the tread back. than try'd to import a dwg made with this program but solidworks e-drawing reader pops up and away after reading file. 3dstudio gives that the error code is not implemeneted yet and rhino4 goes error importing file "C:yipster\photo mesh.dwg". acad not installed now. on the autodesk's forum an employee mentioned its a free trial and autodesk is not shure on its future use, it may stay free, there might come a charge or the project might be taken down alltogether. its good fun seeing the 3d photo u-tube's but even with mesh optimised i feel if it would merge in a drawing it only can be good for rough scenery, as drawing it can function as background to trace, no sharp nurbs, i try to dig up that old rhino photometry tread, there was more good use for a program like this, ah found something:

    Sounds good, doesn't really work

    I tried it briefly, and the conclusion is that it simply doesn't work for real professional use. Even simple manual picture tracing from at least two views works way better and quicker. A 3D digitizer where you control what you measure is, in my opinion, the only thing that works reasonably well.

    My security system said this download could harm my computer.
    Did anybody else get a message like that or did anybody else get a Virus from the download?
