A few tips to keep in mind in order to get the best and fastest results from your RealityCapture software:
- Do not limit the number of images, RealityCapture can handle any.
- Use the highest resolution possible.
- Each point in the scene surface should be clearly visible in at least two high quality images. The more - the better rule applies here.
- Always move when taking photos. Standing at one point produces just a panorama and it does not contribute to a 3D model creation. But move around the object in a circular way.
- Do not change view point more than 30 degrees.
- Start with taking pictures of the whole object, move around it and then focus on details. Beware of jumping too close at once, make it gradual.
- Complete loops. For objects like statues, buildings and other you should always move around and end up in the place where you started.
