Introduction to Worldbuilding through Photogrammetry

Scan reality to create VR environments

Photorealistic environments are no longer only created by huge, profitable gaming studios; thanks to the process of photogrammetry—the art and science of making measurements for photographs—a single individual with a smartphone, a decent computer, and the right combination of skills and patience, can take a real location and scan it into a virtual world. In Intro to World-Building through Photogrammetry, students will learn to scan real places, create accurate digital models, clean up imperfections, and then employ the space in a simple VR scene. Your world awaits!

Students will have access to an Empow Labs laptop and Oculus Rift.
