Here it is a link to a virtual tour of the old Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada ( previously Western Canada Aviation Museum ) just a few days before its demolition in 2018. By clicking the red dots, you can navigate through the different spaces: shops, galleries, library, archives…
Yesterday I tried the Hangar360 app with the DJI MavicPro. Pretty straightforward! Once connected to your drone, push a button and your Mavic will ascend to 91m (100ft) to take 24 photos in 3 rows + nadir. Another button and your drone will descend and land quietly.
Upload the pictures to the Hangar website and you are done! You can also download the pictures from the Mavic and use your own stitching software (Autopano for instance).
See the result.
Winter in Winnipeg can be frustrating for an aspiring drone pilot! You have to be patient to have good flight conditions: some days temperature is decent but the weather bad, others, the blue of the sky is as deep as the temperature. After days at -32°c (-42°c wind chill) I took the opportunity of a raise(!) of the temperature (-5°c/-10°c) to make my first outdoor flights.
This model was made to be explored in VR: inclined plans can be used to reach higher grounds, Recognizers’ feet offer nice points of view and you can even jump from one to the other.
Can you find:
- a poster from the original movie?
- 4 graffitis badmouthing Sark?
- a subway information board?
Don’t worry, there is a map to help you find these elements!
Duncan, the city of totems, is located in the Cowichan region on Vancouver Island. A good place to play with Autodesk Remake and the Ricoh ThetaS!
Last week, Sketchfab introduced VR launcher, teleportation and scene editor. These easy-to-use tools, give a real sense of scale to your 3D models and make them more interesting to explore.
It is also a great way to notice scale discrepancies…
Of course, the quality of the final image is not as good as if it were shot with a DSLR, but… it’s really great to have a decent panorama in a couple of secondes, without any editing! Two cool things about the Ricoh ThetaS:
- whatever the orientation of the camera, the final panorama is leveled!
- keep your stick/monopod right in the axe of the body and it vanishes from the image!
I have been playing with Memento beta for a couple of weeks, and I am pretty impressed. Still have a lot to learn to master this technique: some models are great with just 30/40 images, others are still far from perfect with more than 200 photos!
And now it’s even possible to upload your own HDR environment! Here it’s a scene lighted with the HDR panorama, I did in august 2013 in Waterton Park. The same I used with Keyshot! Co cool…
