Basecamp 2014 Photogrammetry Workshop

You can learn a lot from a photograph. This workshop will lead you through the process of using the Advanced Camera Tools extension to match SketchUp Pro’s virtual camera with a real world photo. This technique is more rigorous than SketchUp’s “Match Photo” function. It requires knowing details about the camera focal length and having known reference points that appear in both the model and photograph. You can use this process to accurately position new geometry in a 3D model, or export 2D views for blending into a photograph.
