Never tried it, never want to. It's stupid. Sure, the video makes it look "cool" but it's so unbelievably limited to primary shaped objects. And good luck positioning the object from a completely different angle the photo was taken, it'll look shit.

It may have limited applications, but it's pretty amazing technology none the less and definitely not stupid.

It can easily be used for quick proto typing of game assests.

From there you can use the size and measurements to re-build a real model.

The materials are not worth much at the moment but again can be used as a base to make your own.

yup. certainly looks gimmicky and you get the impression it's most clunky and hit'n'miss in it's operation, but, it also looks like it does what it says on the tin, even if not to uber quality standards.

As Pil says, quick prop creation for modeling on or for mid or background placing in scene rendering might be perfect with it, especially if you take your own custom photographic references.

most interesting.

I can see this being used as a photo shop plugin. If you want to manipulate an oblect or reposition it for whatever reason.

looks neat but then again.. an experienced modeler can build those kinds of shapes from scratch just as quickly (note the time warp)

Yeah, I remember seeing this a few years ago thinking "WOW ITS THE FUTURE."

Now I'm older (and maybe wiser), and don't really care about it. Any modeller worth their salt can create the objects in the photographs, and probably more accurately and with less errors in less time than drawing some arbitrary ellipses and extrusions.

For the most part yeah. The stuff with the street lamp and the candle holder is pretty impressive. In the unlikely event you'd need to do some retouching like that, this looks way more efficient than modelling then rendering separately and bringing it back into Photoshop.

Nah, didn't think so.

Of course not, but I'm not the one defending this gimmick.

I see. So you don't need to have used something to call it stupid but you do to suggest actually it might have uses? Congrats on your amazing logic skills.

Saw the vid. Was able to analyze all that from it. Yep, I am that good. Cheers for the props.
