Description:


    This movie takes the audience on a journey to a world where every object, artwork, and architecture is built from reality with 3D photography. Walk through monuments, manipulate objects and statues, and fly inside Renaissance paintings.

    The monuments were reconstructed from digital images and image-based modeling based on photogrammetry, bundle adjustment, and texture mapping using in-house software tools and a commercial package (ShapeCapture). The statues and small objects were digitized by a laser scanner with 10-microns resolution and modeled by PolyWorks software. The paintings were turned into 3D using our new single-image 3D technique (SIGGRAPH 2001 sketch).
