Working with mirrors
« on: January 04, 2013, 02:08:40 PM »
Sometimes you need to photograph something where your camera doesn't fit in. Then it would be very helpful to use an optical mirror. I tried this with a pot shooted from the mouth to the mirror inside the pot and the first step "Align Photos" works as expected. The positions of the cameras look as they were shot from around the pot. In the "Build Geometry" step the colored geometry is succesfully built (see first attachment). But the third step "Build Texture" failed, because Photoscan projects the texture from the camera position to the first face and not the right one (see second attachment).
I think it would be very helpful for many users, if Photoscan could produce the right texture also.

Thank you,

Karsten
