For more than a decade, Science.D.Visions has been developing enterprise matchmove software. Right from the start, it has been our goal to concentrate on the problems and needs of professional users, only. Our efforts resulted in the market leading brand "3D-Equalizer". Fact is, if you go to the box office today to watch the latest visual effects driven blockbuster movie, you will most likely be entertained by the help of our work!
Agisoft Metashape is a stand-alone software product that performs photogrammetric processing of digital images and generates 3D spatial data to be used in GIS applications, cultural heritage documentation, and visual effects production as well as for indirect measurements of objects of various scales.
Wisely implemented digital photogrammetry technique enforced with computer vision methods results in smart automated processing system that, on the one hand, can be managed by a new-comer in the field of photogrammetry, yet, on the other hand, has a lot to offer to a specialist who can adjust the workflow to numerous specific tasks and different types of data. Throughout various case studies Metashape proves to produce quality and accurate results.
Introducing Airnef, an open-source utility for downloading images and movies from your WiFi-equipped Nikon camera. It supports all Nikon cameras that have built-in WiFi interfaces, along with those using external Nikon WU-1a and WU-1b WiFi adapters. Airnef may also work with Nikon’s WT-4A and WT-5A wireless adapters for the D3/D4/D8x. Airnef supports Canon cameras as well. Airnef is licensed under GPL v3 . Airnef is two applications - a GUI front-end and a command-line app. The GUI front-end allows you to visually select the criteria of which images to download and then launches the command-line app to perform the transfer. You can optionally use the command-line version directly to script your transfers. . === MAJOR FEATURES === . • Fast downloads - Airnef uses optimized Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) parameters for sustained throughput around 2.5 MB/s • Realtime download mode - images are transferred to your computer as you shoot them. For cameras without realtime WiFi shooting support an optional staged-realtime process can be used as well. • Extensive criteria selection makes it easy to quickly choose which images to download, including by file type (NEF, JPG, MOV, etc...), starting and/or ending capture date, specific camera folders, and media card slot - in any combination. And Airnef will automatically skip over files you've already downloaded! • Renaming engine allows you to customize the names of directories and files for images you download • Advanced local caching of MTP metadata allows for very fast click-to-download start times • Lets you decide the order that files are downloaded, either oldest first or newest first. That way you can start working on the files you want right away instead of waiting for all the files to be downloaded • Fault-tolerant operation - Airnef will continuously retry any failed communication/transfer, resuming the download exactly where it left off, even in the middle of a file.
Supports accurate ICC profile creation for scanners, cameras and film recorders, and calibration and profiling of displays and RGB & CMYK printers. Device Link can be created with a wide variety of advanced options, including specialized Video calibration standards and 3dLuts. Spectral sample data is supported, allowing a selection of illuminants observer types, and paper fluorescent whitener additive compensation. Profiles can also incorporate source specific gamut mappings for perceptual and saturation intents. Gamut mapping and profile linking uses the CIECAM02 appearance model, a unique gamut mapping algorithm, and a wide selection of rendering intents.

NanoDLP is a host and control software for SLA / DLP 3D printers. Raspberry Pi, Windows and Linux desktop versions are available.
OctoPrint is a so called host software for 3D printers that controls your 3D printer and sends it the actual commands to do its job. Other tools for this task include Printrun, Repetier Host and also Cura.
OctoPrint differs from existing host solutions in that its major focus is to provide a web interface that allows controlling the printer remotely from anywhere on the network or even the internet while offering the same responsiveness and feedback options available on native host applications like the ones listed above. In order to achieve this, OctoPrint makes heavy use of current web technologies and frameworks, such as AJAX and HTML5 web sockets.
OctoPrint was developed to be run on small embedded devices such as the popular Raspberry Pi. It allows you to turn your existing 3D printer into a WiFi enabled one and untether it from your laptop or work station.
PFTrack is the industry-leading match-mover for VFX post production. It's easy-to-use, will auto-track for you, but comes packed with advanced features that let you conquer the most challenging shots. Unrivalled 3D data analysis and workflow toolsets give you a huge range of functions for use across your entire visual effects pipeline, today and into the future. For seamless VFX, PFTrack remains the best and most cost-effective professional match-mover you can buy. Available on Windows, Linux and Mac, it is built on The Pixel Farm's passion for VFX, by an R&D team that has decades of production experience and leadership in innovative image-analysis technologies.
Unlike other match-moving applications, PFTrack allows you to manipulate tracking data at many levels. From the simple one button click approach, right through to building complex mattes and editing of individual camera parameters via spline-based F-Curves. Match movers rarely have a need to step outside the integrated toolset within PFTrack. PFTrack's robust camera solver gives you fast and accurate results. Solving for the camera motion will estimate the path of the camera through 3D space, and reconstruct precise 3D camera and object motion paths out of any type of live action footage.

Regard3D is a structure-from-motion program. That means, it can create 3D models from objects using a series of photographs taken of this object from different viewpoints.
To obtain a 3D model, the following steps are performed:
For each image, features (sometimes also called keypoints) are detected. Features are points in an object that have a high probability to be found in different images of the same object, for example corners, edges etc. Regard3D uses A-KAZE for this purpose.
For each feature, a mathematical descriptor is calculated. This descriptor has the characteristic that descriptors of the same point in an object in different images (seen from different viewpoints) is similar. Regard3D uses LIOP (Local Intensity Order Pattern) for this purpose.
The descriptors from different images are matched and geometrically filtered. The result of this step is a collection of matches between each image pair.
Now "tracks" are calculated. For each feature that is part of a match in an image pair, it is searched also in other images. A track is generated from features if these features satisfy some conditions, for example a track is seen in at least 3 images.
The next step is the triangulation phase. All the matches of all the image pairs are used to calculate:
The 3D position and characteristic of the "camera", i.e. where each image was shot and the visual characteristics of the camera
The 3D position of each "track" is calculated
The result of the triangulation phase is a sparse point cloud. In order to obtain a more dense point cloud ("densification"), several algorithms can be used.
The last step is called "Surface generation". The point clouds are used to generate a surface, either with colored vertices or with a texture.
