Environment Capture for Creators

 

We automatically capture and generate colorized point clouds of your scanned environment, then reconstruct it! This brings the real world to virtual, enabling new opportunities for VR/AR and innovative creators.

 
 

Our methodology involves multiple steps:

 

Acquire

WITH Motorized CAPTURE

Acquire 50 RGB images and 50 depth captures, separated at 7.2 degree angles. Precise movement is ensured with a motorized tripod. Ensure that each image passes a quality threshold. If not, re-acquire.

Process

COLORIZED POINT CLOUDS

  • Leverage the captured frames to generate 50 colorized point clouds.
  • Remove noise and any outlier points in each scan
  • Downsample the image and grouping nearby points
 

Reconstruct

"Stitch" it all together

Leverage a modified ICP algorithm to stitch the images together. Utilize known angles and RGB information for superior reconstruction.

Deploy

READY FOR CREATION

Scan automatically deploys to your creation tool of choice, whether that is UE4, Unity, WebVR, or simply an OBJ file with the associated textures.
