    Hello Sergio,

    In RealityCapture check the reconstructed mesh that you want to export in solid mode without the texture, not in vertices mode or sweet mode. Check the details on the mesh in that mode. The details that you are referring to are just baked shadows in the colored texture from what I can see. Also your mesh is noisy (maybe you used a high ISO setting?), post a sample image that was used to reconstruct the mesh. 

    To get the details that you want (hair curls, shirt stripes) you need to have sharp high resolution images without noise. Did you use some kind of scanning rig? It looks like it from one of the screenshots.

  • Hello Jakub

    Thank you ever so much for your reply.
     
    I hadn't considered RC baked such good details from shadows into the texture and that threw me off. Yes indeed the solid mode mesh without texture is noisy. Knowing this and that ISO was low, I am led to believe possibly reflections killed a good capture (bronze sculpture). I am going to try again with a polarized filter and post back results on the community forum.
     
    Yep, what a good eye, it's a turntable rig our team built :)
     
    Thanks a bunch for your help,

    You are welcome Sergio. You can try using a coating spray. Check this video from my colleague:

    When you have a turntable rig you can make one set of photos for the texture and another set of photos with the coating on for mesh reconstruction. Good luck with your project
