Model with people in it

HI all,

I am shooting a salon next week and the customer wants to have the stylists in the model. My guess would be to scan entire space with no ppl and then scan with people positioned and remove any scans that don't have people in it in workshop. I like the 3D showcase punk shop that Orbitance did on retail featured. Anyone done this or have tips or process that works best? Thanks in advance.

  • I have 2 models with people - not sure the best protocol for doing this but will watch for other postings.

    Both models that I scanned had people added after the initial scan and then I stood next to a scan point that I already had and there was no issue with the people being in the scans; however, there could be a better way to do this.  @Mark Jackson thanks for initiating the question!

  • Thanks Lisa. This is kinda what I'm looking for. Your two spaces look great. Anyone else have some neat spaces or techniques?

  • Hi Mark,

    If you need to scan the space with people positioned, please have people in the space keep still and no motion movement when camera rotates.  Each rotation takes less than 40sec.  Otherwise the motion movement doesn't look good.

    Thanks.

  • Thanks Maggie. 

    would you recommend scanning whole model first then adding people or shoot them as you go? Think ppl might want to move locations in different scans, but still during each scan.

  • At what point in the scan is the photograph taken?

  • Hi @Mark Jackson  People certainly add an element of interest to a scan and adding during the scan, or later after the scan is made depends somewhat on the end use by the client.

    One of my personal favorites is my Holiday Greeting I did with my wife:  https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=XVxCk11q7Av 

    With this, we moved around quite a bit.  The skateboarders in the stands liked our embrace :)  

    I have a retail account that wanted to have his sales associates added after the scan of the store.  The 'people' effect is not as impactful because they are only visible in a few scan points.

  • Thanks William. I like the originality of your scan. I might have to copy this Christmas. Thanks for the idea and the tips. My shoot is this Sunday. I think I'll try to scan the small salon with no people for alignment purposes and then rescan with ppl in different spots thruout and move into different spots. In Workshop I will hide the scans without ppl. I think I will have about 35-40 scans total as it's a small shotgun style space.

  • @William Robinson Obviously this is my opinion but I believe all the people that 'feature' in scans need to be stage managed if they are intended to be seen in  the scan and the reflections of 'missing people' and blurred 'ghosts' in your scan are terrible in some points and create some very odd artifacts and stitching errors that in my opinion spoil what is a very good scan and overall concept.

    Personally I'd have waited for some better opportunities and re-scanned or omitted those that haven't worked.

    I think my point is proven where you have included yourself and your wife and those views look excellent and obviously create quite a surreal space. Indeed I was disappointed that you were not visible in the opening scan as I turned to see you after seeing your shadows. I guess that might have been your intention but it would have perhaps set the scene as you appeared in random positions through out the model.

    Very cool idea though :)
