This is a normal post rich people.
The chap I worked for stopped me one day and told me he wanted a lake in his garden.
"Err....ok...i suppose....I could look into how to...."
"Fine, just go ahead and do it."
So I hired some diggers and got busy. I had a massive pond liner custom made at some factory in Germany and shipped over.
"Dave, I want a waterfall as well - nothing massive, just a gentle stream cascading over some rocks or something..... Oh, and a bridge....an arched wooden bridge over the narrow part strong enough to drive the tractor over if needed."
"right..."
So thats what I did. Granted its nothing like the vid in the original post, but I was quite proud of it.

I need to get some decent pics, this is the narrow end with the bridge and waterfall, but no water yet. A very rough calculation reckons it will take about 400 cubic mters of water to fill. We are now looking at what plants etc he wants around it which I will plant this spring.

It can be fun working for rich people.

This is a link post Pimping my brother's latest undertaking
A couple of years ago I stuck a couple of links up plugging the movie Chalet Girl, a Brit rom-com whose screenplay was penned by the fair hand of my brother. Despite it not being typical b3ta fodder, you guys all seemed to like the idea of a jobbing British writer doing well, and I remember him saying at the time that his blog and some other sites got quite a lot of visits through b3ta so here we go.

His next undertaking is a tad more gritty than the Snow-mantic phenomenon that was Chalet Girl, involving as it does paratroopers and land mines...

It's still early days - they're searching for investment and drumming up talent interest in the major character roles. But if you have an interest in the film business, and want to keep an eye on progress, then worth checking out the site, and following on the facebooks and liking on the twitters or whatever the cool kids do these days.

ADDENDUM If any of you are seriously moneyed up and want to invest in the project, by all means feel free.

Two Nikon D700s bolted together and a lot of fancy software (and clever people - not me). I've done a bit of laser scanning, including with a 500k Arius colour jobby, but honestly, I think photogrammetry is the future - especially if you're after a nice attractive output rather than engineering-style accuracy.

You can try photogrammetry for free at sites like www.123dapp.com/catch

[edit]Btw, we also scanned the bowl with a Nikon portable laser scanner - to get geometry but no texture, but ended up not using any of the scan data (there was an issue with the scanner, but ultimately there was just no point, the photogrammetry got the geometry pretty well)[/edit]

Not sure, and getting out of my comfort zone, but I don't think it's using voxels. It's a point cloud, so the points are distributed arbitrarily rather than in a 3d grid... does that make sense?

Fairly simple to mesh a point cloud, could you then use that?

This is a normal post It's not that simple to mesh a point cloud properly.
you can get a reasonable first approximation, but there are cases where most of the algorithms break and manual intervention is required. Worth the effort if you want to render without holes or analyse the data though.

Adding normals and reflectance info to turn the points into surfels is another alternative that sometimes works well for rendering, unfortunately you still get problems with holes where the samples are too far apart.

If you want to go all the way to crazy you could just take hundreds of pictures and go for light field rendering. No geometry at all, just clever warp & blend operations.
(, Fri 8 Feb 2013, 12:51, Reply)
This is a normal post
True, though those algorithms are improving all the time - but yes, the mesh will usually need a lot of cleaning and work to make it properly solid, so it can be printed out, for example.

As for normals, hopefully you can see on this model that there are some! They were all calculated after capture though. There weren't many holes in the data, but huge amounts of noise thanks to the incredibly shiny material. Cleaning that up did introduce holes, which then required filling using the software's algorithms, which is why the model looks rough (in the actual sense of the word) in places.

We got this model using about 30 image stereo-pairs. My colleagues here have got this method (depending on the source object) to output geometry that's accurate to less than 20 microns, better than pretty much any laser scanner. We're looking at buying a light field camera to play with!

This is a normal post Spatial res on the light field cameras I have seen is unimpressive.
Probably best off sticking with a high res camera + robot type rig.

I wasn't getting decent lighting unfortunately - it was all flat. I believe it is there tho. Software at my end is the likely culprit.

Got any papers btw? I'm fairly interested in this stuff but haven't followed it for a couple of years.
(, Fri 8 Feb 2013, 13:24, Reply)
This is a normal post
It takes a while for the lighting to 'switch on' - was the model fully loaded? Lots of pink specularity...?

Funny you should say that about high-res... our first model used the full res of the image, and we got a very dense point cloud but with a lot of noise and holes. Running the same images but downsampled 2x, we got a sparser point cloud but cleaner data and fewer holes - probably because the feature detection worked better on lo-res images rather than high-res with everything 'smeared out' over more pixels.

And not sure what you mean by 'robot' rig - we just used a tripod and shifted the camera round! We did use a kinect to make a very rough 3d model first, and then used an algorithm in development here to predict the best camera positions for the object (though I doubt it would matter much with a fairly 2d symmetrical object like this). A couple of colleagues are actually building a robot rig which would take pics from all the best spots...

As for papers, I try not to get involved in the maths/technical side, but google scholar should throw up a load - try searching for just photogrammetry or 'structure from motion'. I get the gist of most of them, but they tend to lose me as soon as they start with the maths...

This is a normal post The CSG engine and scripting side is nice enough to use
It's the back end and implementation I've got no time for. CSG trees get unwieldy quite fast, and the use of implicit geometry for everything has been hobbling the performance for years.

By all means use CSG, but FFS expand the geometry, stick it into some *decent* spatial data structures and take a tenth of the time to render a scene!

[edit] They can't actually do this, because the CSG engine allows infinitely large objects. This means that to have something with decent performance for, say, triangle meshes and tessellated objects they need to support 2 data structures simultaneously and decide what can be expanded on a per subtree basis. Don't envy them but they brought it on themselves.

This is a normal post Problems with going the fpga route
1. fpgas are still pretty pricey

2. my current machine is a laptop, and /laptop/ fpgas are limited.

3. ray tracing needs random access to the whole scene. You either need to keep the whole scene in mem or have some paging system.

4. Data transfer is expensive. Whatever job you are offloading has to really be worth the effort.

3 and 4 are the biggies there. Interesting scenes are absurdly complex these days, and even gpu memory is limited. Not saying it can't be made useful, just that you need to think hard about what to offload.

Now if you offload the post render tone mapping you could probably do very well. I have been coding up a QMC based approx bilateral filter lately that gives excellent results and would work nicely in hardware.

When finished it's going to take pride of place in the middle of my detail enhancer. Same results as the old one, much faster :)

This is a normal post Yes, but with difficulty.
The problem is that after the first bounce a ray can end up anywhere in your scene, especially if you are doing lighting simulation or lots of reflections.

One approach is to split up the scene into regions and have a processor/machine/fpga dealing with each one, but then you have to deal with the problem of handing over rays between regions and routing results back to whatever asked for them.

The details get a bit horrible.

it looks pretty, but to be honest it could just be a map of the world with some fairy lights and the odd bit of text arriving and departing at a speed which renders text useless.

It would've looked great in a pre-launch pitch presentation to investors but I'm not sure it offers much other than being pretty.

6music is a fine station, but not perfect. I find the daytime selections too conservative, too XFM (awful, awful station. The worst thing is the presenters though. All of them, with the exception of Buxton (and Cornish, when he's not being all successful in the states) really grate on me.
