Video: Rapid creation of 3D using a video camera

Check out this bit of cleverness:

It reminds me of a more automated version of the Video Trace technology (see demo) that popped up around two years ago. It also brings to mind Strata’s Foto 3D, a tool for generating 3D models from within Photoshop using just a series of photographs.
I know Photoshop’s entry into 3D can sometimes be a little confusing (e.g. wasn’t the app big/complex enough already?), but we see 3D becoming more and more accessible & ubiquitous. It’s not a question of “if” but “when.” For more info you may want to see “Photoshop 3D is not about 3D.”

  1. I know you are photoshop guy, but I was wondering, will there be a feature in Adobe AfterEffects that will allow this kind of feature in the future? Because I want to make building 3D elements even quicker and easier

  2. I have an iMac 10.6 and Photoshop 7.0 (which I love) refuses to function with it. It tells me “An unexpected and unrecoverable problem has occurred because of a program error. Photoshop will now exit.”
    What’s wrong?
