Creating 3D models at home with Regard3D

In my continuing efforts to document some of my experiments in creating 3D models from static images and to demo what’s possible with different tools I present today’s post about Regard3D. Regard3D is a structure from motion application. It’s easy to use.

I took a series of pictures of my housemate following a fixed path (it’s structure from motion, after all). Unfortunately she kept laughing when I’d take the photos. So I go her to close her eyes and be still. She still started to laugh when she could sense I was getting towards taking photos. Hence the bias in the angles and the closed eyes in the final model:

A sleeping cat though is much easier to to prevent from laughing:

But they do move their head to see what you’re doing:

But they don’t tend to move their little foots:
