I am a bit new to 3d modeling, and have been using photoscan for a few months, but i just want to point out how useful it is to convert your mesh to all quads. It was honestly the single most effective thing i've found for cleaning up a model, and making it easier to work with. So excited to get some of my scans up as destinations soon!

I have a Ricoh Theta S. I'm wondering if 360 spherical photos would help in the photo taking process for photogrammetry? I'm assuming most, if not all photogrammetry software out there probably doesn't accept latlong images, but I'm wondering if I could set up a Nuke script to import a latlong image and render out maybe 60 or more photos from different viewing angles of a latlong image and use those images to run through photogrammetry software. If I take maybe 10 360 photos with my Theta around an area, and then run these 10 latlong images through my nuke script, I should come out with around 600 photos with enough overlapping coverage in each photo to get a very accurate solve.

Wow, f/11?

I have been using VisualSFM with CMVS/PMVS and MeshLab. It is a bit of a messy process and bit complicated to get setup the first time but once you have the basics down it is fun. Oh boy am I glad that my desktop has 8 CPU cores and 16 Gigs of ram. Photogrammetry has always been a time consuming process but if you get the setup right you can produce some very nice results.

Can you elaborate slightly on how you would project the remaining image data onto a sphere so as to create a seamless transition between the authored models and the flat photo-background?

I've found that in addition to huge amounts of RAM, fast GPUs are essential for PhotoScan. By throwing a couple GTX 980s at it, my compute times went from multiple days down to just a few hours.

Awesome write up. I've been doing quite a lot of this lately, but I feel like I've been able to get much much higher quality results with much less legwork with Memento than Agisoft. Are there any major differences or pitfalls you've noticed that have led you to prefer Agisoft over the others?
