Sharing Your Photo Scenes with Just One File - It is Alive in the Lab

BIM -It is Alive in the Lab

Project Photofly user, Matthew Valentine, shared his YouTube video with us. I added it to the Project Photofly Gallery.


Matthew also shared his 3D Photo Scene with us.

Many of you may not be aware of this, but you can share photo scenes with others by just sending your .3dp file to the other people. Project Photofly will do the rest. It's as easy as 1-2-3. Here's what I did to get everything I needed to have a complete photo scene starting with Matthew's one file.

1.1 I created a folder where I placed Matthew's 3D photo scene file. Note that this folder has no other files in it.
2.2 When I double-clicked on Mathew's .3dp file, it invoked the Photo Scene Editor. The Photo Scene Editor let me know that it could not find the source photographs used to create the scene.
 3 I clicked on Download and the Photo Scene Editor downloaded the images from the Project Photofly server.
 4 Now my folder contained the original 3D photo scene file as well as the JPEG image files. The JPEGs were the original images that had been resized to 3 megapixels.
3.5 The Photo Scene Editor did not have the mesh data yet. So I downloaded the mesh data too.
 10 I now had the 3D photo scene based on the standard resolution mesh. I could pan, zoom, or orbit to my heart's content. This is more powerful than just a video alone. If I know the size of one of the objects, I could set the scale and take measurements.
 12 The end result was that my folder had the 3D photo scene file, the photographs, and the mesh data (in a subfolder).

Sharing this way is pretty handy since the photo scene is one small file. Matthew's 3D photo scene file was less than 8K - something that can easily be attached to an email. It's a very winning idea.

Sharing is alive in the lab.
