In this course, we will photo scan an object with Agisoft Photoscan, develop the images for better results, masking and aligning photos for generating dense point cloud data, clean that data to generate a scan mesh that we will retopology for be able to use it in 3D applications. We will also need to UV map the model and generate the textures based on the photographs. Additional you will learn how to create assets from scratch and procedural painted textures.
