Photoflying out the door…

…so this is just a quick one. A very quick one. As in all Mental Ray settings set disgustingly low to lash out a quick turntable.. I’ll be off the radar for a few days now but in the meantime here is a shell captured with Photofly, rendered in Mental Ray in 3DSMax.

  1. Hi Pete,

    Very interesting this…. Is there a way to isolate the object apart from the surface that it was photographed on? Nice results – good work.


    • Hey Eoin, everything is collapsed into 2 or 3 meshes arbitrarily in the cloud, this outside your control. You can of course edit the meshes in your 3D modeller and the Photofly Scene Editor also lets you make selections to keep but it’s not smart enough to return splits in the meshes with respect to real world objects. I guess the options are detach manually and reconstruct the missing areas by hand or mount your subject on a very thin plinth, photographing as much of the underside as possible for more coverage in the mesh construction. Hope this helps.

  2. This is a great looking model. What happens when you hold it up to your ear?
