Best Positioning of cameras?
« on: January 28, 2014, 01:56:05 AM »
I'm fairly new to photoscan and I've learned alot about the program very quickly, I have five cameras pointed at a turntable in an arc-ing manner, but feel like I need to pull the upper cameras back further, and lose the arc as it doesn't seem to help make better scans. I have attached my most recent scan with the cameras pulled back a little, but I'm thinking they should almost be in a vertical line straight up and down.  I have a lot of overlap on my top 3 cameras, however I want the best face scans I can get.  Is it good or bad to have lots of overlap on the upper body?

Any advice on the best camera placement would be great!  thank you

You should try rotating them vertically (top 2), maybe adding another one also vertical poistioned around chest pointing upwards shooting just head. With turntable 3 cameras for head is minimum. We shot just head with 4 cameras and turntable to get decent results.

Well I currently have all 5 cameras vertically positioned.  Would it be best to keep my lower cameras in a landscape orientation?  The resolution of my models is not turning out as good as I would like, or have gotten before sometimes.  thanks for your responses, I'm learning so much everyday!
