When I embarked in my project, and in the world of 3D in general, I knew that the 2D-to-3D “bridge” would be important to cross. However, I had no idea about its prevalence. The issue keeps on showing up again and again and again.
First, I acquired these 2 cranium models:
Problem No. 1: They have absurd dimensions. The Behr model (highest resolution available) is 2 meters tall. I wrote to them: “I had no idea that Mount Rushmore is going to receive the head of a new president”
Therefore, I used the following Average Cranium Dimensions Table:
Next, based on the aspect ratio from JPEGs of the 2 X-rays taken at the autopsy, I concluded that the film used was 11x14". This can be checked by contacting the National Archives.
Now the question: How come the match is so poor? Looks like a person wearing shoes several sizes bigger. I was very careful with all the dimensions.
