CGI Workshop Nanjing - April
At the Nanjing University of fine arts took place a three day workshop about the topic “Computer Generated Imagery (CGI)”.
At this occasion the complete workflow - starting with the capture of the fully spherical HDR photographic survey and backplanes on-site, through the preparation of the 3D models to the textures – was created by the teaching stuff of the university and external participants from graphic design agencies who work in the field of automobile visualisation.
An oil drilling training platform in Montrose (Scotland) has been documented to demonstrate the working speed as well as the image and measurement quality of the Civetta in documentation of larger properties.
As a result, it has been created, automated and computed 80 calibrated fully spherical HDR photographic surveys within 150 minutes. Directly after this the fully spherical HDR photographic surveys were visual connected with each other.
Because of the high dynamic range and high sensitivity could be achieved excellent results - especially with regard to the measurement - and all this without any additional lightning.
