Bentley Acute3D ContextCapture Center 4.1
Acute3D, a Bentley Systems company, has released 4.1 version of ContextCapture Center, its a new solution developed on the basis of the former Smart3DCapture technology, a software solution allowing to produce high resolution 3D models from simple photographs, without any human intervention.
The principle of ContextCapture is to analyze several photographs of a static subject, taken from different viewpoints, and to automatically detect pixels corresponding to a same physical point. From many such correspondences, relative orientations of photos and accurate 3D shape of the scene can be inferred.
ContextCapture solves this problem with cutting edge photogrammetry, computer vision and computational geometry algorithms fulfilling industrial-quality requirements in terms of precision, scalability, efficiency, usage, robustness and interoperability.
ContextCapture 4.1 release notes:
– Fisheye camera support.
– New camera database (camera model, user database, user interface).
– New user interface to import positions/rotations from text files.
– Video frame import.
– Aerotriangulation algorithm improvement (frustum, new input data min/max viewing distance, block type nadir).
– Texturing improvement (texturing per sub-triangle).
– New command line tool to export a unique LOD mesh from a 3D reconstruction composed of several tiles.
Migration to ContextCapture for Smart3DCapture users
All Smart3DCapture Advanced/Expert and Ultimate users, with a valid subscription service, are entitled to migrate to an equivalent ContextCapture Edition. Please contact your Acute3D representative or your local Bentley office to learn more about the procedure.
Acute3D is a technological software company created in 2011 by Jean-Philippe Pons and Renaud Keriven. Acute3D’s cutting edge technology originates from 25 man-years of research done at two major French research institutes, École des Ponts ParisTech and Centre Scientifique et Technique du Bâtiment.
We are proud to announce that the Acute3D team has joined Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the leading company dedicated to providing comprehensive software solutions for sustaining infrastructure.
