“VideoTrace is a system for interactively generating realistic 3D models of objects from video – models that might be inserted into a video game, a simulation environment, or another video sequence. The user interacts with VideoTrace by tracing the shape of the object to be modeled over one or more frames of the video.”
Pretty neat! For someone not experienced in 3D modeling, this is a great alternative. Reminds me of SketchUp to some degree, which is cool since you can add your models into Google Earth…Otherwise, I like how VideoTrace generates a 3 dimensional model based on a trace from a video, though I’m still not exactly sure how the software pinpoint hat angle you are at.
