3D Scanning for Games and VFX Vol.1 (free)
By jeffreyianwilson

I have decided to do one last scanning tutorial before I move on to a different discipline focusing my efforts towards a passion project I've been working on for years. I considered this tutorial largely experimental, there are some glaring errors and a misjudgment of software usage which I have corrected. In all it's a solid series, you wont be wasting your time but it's a bit flawed so I have decided to give it away for free and work on a new tutorial which is much more comprehensive and uses much more accurate, production proven techniques I think I've finally mastered over the last year. Anyone who purchased this tutorial will get a free coupon for the new one being released on 9/5/2016.

Enjoy and thank you!

Please note, video 06 - Panoramic HDR Capture has some glaring errors so I have omitted it from the collection.

As someone who just discovered photogrammetry a couple weeks ago, let me say this: I've been searching all over for something like this. Thank you!
