Volumetric capture and photogrammetry bridge the gap between the real world and the virtual world. Through the use of advanced computer vision, machine learning, and mathematics to create realistic environments, objects, and people allowing higher engagment and immersion for users into a digital world. Within the last several years the considerable number of advances occurring in the areas of object recognition, tracking, scanning, and the computational abilities of the computers themselves that capturing is well within the reach of most developers. These breakthroughs in technology have not only increased viability of the platforms but also moved these assets out of the uncanny valley to the world of realism. Current techniques of communication with video, Augmented Reality (AR), and Virtual Reality (VR) fall short in information exchange and often require additional resources to assist in conveying the message. This all cost more time and money; ultimately reducing platform effectiveness. Volumetric capture and photogrammetry can be created in a couple of different ways but the more common uses the technique of capturing images from cameras and sensors to create 3D meshes which can be merged seamlessly into game engines, VR headsets, AR environments and MR worlds for deep psychological influence on users. Anywhere that a CG asset could be used traditionally would be a great opportunity to us a volumetric object for increased immersion. This talk will compare these techniques regarding technical specifications including package sizes, capture options, computing needs, cost analysis, as well as benefit and complexity of each style and their use cases for education. We will cover the engagement and retention in creating realism for digital formats and leveraging these tools.
