Your success with Project Photofly depends heavily on how well you take the pictures. So there are some things to consider before you upload a set of photographs for processing in the cloud.
- Center the person's head in the pictures. Have it fill about 70% of the view.
- Take pictures all around the person moving 5 to 10 degrees with each picture. Taking the shots in a logical order helps.
- Move the camera and nothing else. Project Photofly considers the background when creating the 3D photo scene.
- The person must sit completely still. The facial expression must stay the same which makes smiling consistently for that long hard to accomplish.
- Make sure to take pictures at various levels so you get the top of the head and under the chin as well as the sides.
- About 40 to 50 pictures should so the trick. Too few pictures, and you get holes. Too many pictures, and the server exhausts its memory and CPU.
- Do not use a flash. This creates a different shadow in each picture.
- Have good lighting (. If there are any dark regions, Project Photofly cannot discern what is there.
- Avoid transparent or shiny objects. So removing eye glasses is a good idea.
- Remove any out of focus, under-exposed, or over-exposed photographs before submitting your set to Project Photofly. Both the object and the background need to be in focus as Project Photofly considers all of the pixels in the construction process.
- A tip is that you can place a piece of lint on a person's shoulder and it creates a unique point in all of the pictures.
