Camp George West in Golden, Colorado

Revisited Camp George West in Golden Colorado. You might recognize this building in some of my other posts here on this site.
I most recently used it in this test Unreal Engine video.

The Mill Girl of Manchester NH 2017 vs 2024

This is what “The Mill Girl” looks like as of Jan 4th 2024 and below is what or how it was presented back in 2017. Documenting it’s different positions was an unintended use for this technology from me. I do find it interesting seeing the difference. Personally I think the statue is more effective not on a pedestal.

You can see other (old) photogrammetry models and more here on my sketchfab page. 

Gaussian Splat Test: Around Salem, MA

I have been exploring the use of Gaussian Splats over the holiday and have become addicted to capturing whatever I can with some interesting first results. Notice the reflection of the binocular stand in the puddle, this would be impossible to capture with photogrammetry & LiDAR. Unlike photogrammetry it looks like better results are from less data meaning instead of many orbits around an object or location at different points just one good one is best with Gaussian Splats. More than one orbit tends to muddy the subject. I’m guessing that is something that will be fixed in the future. https://www.kiriengine.app/ running on a M1 iPad pro so far has been the easiest app to scan/capture content for me although I notice I get better results if I use the iPad default camera software for taking photos or videos and than uploading those to Kiri engine.

Here’s one of the photogrammetry scans I took about 6 years ago with zero poly cleanup. I did clean and optimized the models for the above  Unreal Engine animation. You can see the other photogrammetry models and more here on my sketchfab page.

Hey I graduated from the Unreal for Filmmakers Connectors Cohort 17

Here is a link to the Blockchain proof 

Great class great instructors. Check them out if you are looking for instruction. They are the only authorized training centers in the USA.

What have I been up too?

Taking a class on Unreal World Building, Filming and Virtual Production Development @ https://www.becomecgpro.com

Film Noir with Midjourney

Wanted to see what Midjourney AI art generation could do with text prompts with the intent to create a Film Noir look. Took a little coaxing about an hour or so but in the end I got some results that I think are pretty impressive.

The Echolenz Project

Welcome to the Echolenz project. I have owned various 360 cameras over the past ten or so years and have taken many Gigs worth or footage but have largely never posted/shared any of that content. Much of it in truth is garbage but some of it I think is worth sharing with the world. One of the things I like to do with a 360 camera is match a shot from either a historical photo or scene from a film or TV show. I’ve shot a number of them some are good and some well let’s not talk about them. I did build a wordpress website to host these 360s but the 360 plugin broke so I’m currently looking for a workaround, so this page is kind of a place holder. Also if you are someone interested in compositing/editing content in 360 or staging a shot for compositing I’m happy to help.

Testing Boris fx Optics 2022

Okay I’ve learned with this filter system like most things it’s good to start with good source material
so an already well shot photo or image is necessary. This will not make a bad photo or image amazing.

What do you think a little HGH and anabolic steroids for Gangs of New York II

You can quickly iterate and get interesting results with Boris fx Optics 2022.
