One of the Videotrace patent applications has just been accepted by IP Australia. It’s Patent Number 2007202157 ABSTRACT A method for generating a three dimensional (3D) model of an object is depicted in a two dimensional (2D) image is disclosed, The 2D image includes associated 3D information. The method includes an operator determining a geometric […]
We’ve loaded some Videotrace models on Sketchfab, a new 3D model sharing web site, which means you can embed them in web pages: Click on the model above to spin it around.
Well actually Anton van den Hengel gave a talk at the Max Planck Center for Visual Computing and Communication in Saarbreuken (Germany) about 3D User-Created Content (3DUCC). Anton was in Saarbrueken visiting the Computer Graphics Department of Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik there, and particularly the group of Dr. Thorsten Thormaehlen. Thorsten was instrumental in the development of Videotrace […]
Videotrace and Punchcard, the company commercialising it won the Research and Development category of this year’s South Australian iAwards. The iAwards are Australia’s premier technology innovation awards program. TheAustralian Information Industry Association (AIIA) has hosted the awards for 16 years, with this year’s awards sponsored by Fujitsu, KPMG, IBM, and Microsoft, amongst others.
Punchard, the company commercialising Videotrace, has been selected as one of the 23 ICT companies to participate in this year’s Tech23 event. Tech23 is run by Slattery IT, and offers 23 of Australia’s most innovative companies a five-minute time-slot to show off their business model to an audience of 400+ potential investors, mentors, entrepreneurs and customers.
The members of the ACVT have been working on recovering shape information from image sets for more than 15 years. Originally stereo and optical flow were the focus, but more recently we have been working a wide range of projects from interactive 3D modelling from image sets to modelling plants from images taken within the […]
VideoTrace is a system for interactively generating realistic 3D models of objects from video—models that might be inserted into a video game, a simulation environment, or another video sequence. The user interacts with VideoTrace by tracing the shape of the object to be modelled over one or more frames of the video. By interpreting the […]
