this was posted a few months ago, pretty sure if you did a search you'd come up with something, not cgnews though.

That program could do miracles with high resolution images.
I bet 3d photography will be the next big thing!

Wow, camera mapping, amazing technology. It's only been around, lemme see.....12+ years.

It's not about the camera mapping part it's about the computer actually understanding the picture and doing all the camera mapping by himself, and that's huge.

Such technology could be awsome as well in a matchmoving app : not only will you have trackers, but also an automatic low rez version of the scene in your 3D app.

Imagine if you could actually enhanced 2D films in 3D/2.5D almost by the clikc of a button ?

We may be far from it, but that's the first step

Umm, have you ever used imagemodeler? It is about as far from automatic as it comes.....that app is a scam....all it does is allows you to kind of model based on the images you put into it.....not very well tho....but trust me, you do all the work

Imagemodler shows it can do this in one click too, but this is never true except in that 1 image that is setup for the demo. Everything that works in a lab all of a sudden becomes 10x more complicated in a production environment.

The thing is Furnace, Mokey/Monet, PFtrack/Icarus already did what Pixeldust was supposed to do going on 5-7 years ago. Maybe they thought that it wasn't worth marketing a product in such a niche market that may not sell as a standalone product. Everyone else packages that tool with a bunch of their other tools.

Mokey/Monet are by far a thing of beauty and brilliance.....planar tracking is the way of the future, and i hope more start to see its virtue.....even keying in it works magnificently....very impressive software, and while not entirely automatic (then again who really wants that!! It would put us out of work!!) it is highly intuitive and makes tracking a lot less of a chore, especially those difficult to track shots with extreme tilting involved, or used for rotoscoping!

I was actually refering to Lorecanth's post about pixeldust. I added a quote to make that more apparent.
