I have a video but all I want is a beautiful 3D model

Instead of taking multiple photos of an object to create a 3D model, you should consider capturing video of the object instead. As we all know, a video consists of multiple frames that are stacked together and the frame rate is somewhere between 24 and 30. So basically you can just extract the frames from the video and use these frames to create a 3D model by using photogrammetry.

This is one way you can do it:

  • open your video in Photoshop
  • press the «Render Video» button in your «timeline» tab
  • select the «Photoshop Image Sequence» and be sure you have maximum quality for the JPG´s
  • if you are going to use Memento, you can not exceed 250 photos. I usually divide 250 with the duration of the video in seconds. In this way, I will not extract more than 250 frames
  • hit the «Render» button and wait

You have now approximately 250 photos waiting for you to import into Memento and then it is just to wait for the processing to be completed.

Voilà!

PS! I have all my personal videos stored in «Google Photos». Have Google ever considered starting making 3D model effects from these videos by using photogrammetry, or are they just waiting for «Google Tango» to make the first dance…?
