I'm new to this forum so sorry if this has been discussed already - I tried to look at some tutorials but since it's a fairly specific issue some of you might have a solution more fitted to this.
I need to reconstruct an actors facial performance, I'd say around 35-40 minutes of footage split into shots. It's captured by an 8 camera rig, which is fixed, 4 camera pairs about 3 meters from the actor, not sure of the exact focal lenght ( I didn't get any exif data, only png's to make it more fun I guess ) The footage was provided by an outside vendor so I dont know exact dimensions and such.
Long story short, I can't change the cameras, I managed to do fairly decent reconstructions given the circumstances.
The question is, is there any way of inputing chunks of lets say 8*1000 photos and batch process them so it would output 1 mesh for every frame of the actors performance? Without it trying to match the photos of the next frame of course. I have proper naming/folder structure, like "camera_1_frame_0001.png etc"
I recreated a sample frame with a free scan rendered where the actor would be (intentionally crappy placement), maybe that makes it more clear -
Any ideas are much appreciated.
