Vue, renders the mesh and use SHADOWS - nonflat surface of the model - shadows.. in AGI there are no SHADOWS  generated.. try switch in AGI to the SOLID  display mode , its the BLUE icon next to  the SHADED mode.. the colorfull pyramide.....

ok i see thanks,  so the only way to get it looking more realistic like the photoscan view is to have better capture with less movement, and clean the mesh up in other software afterwards correct ?
thanks again

I think you can also turn the light off in meshlab
