Was ist eigentlich Photogrammetrie?

Wer sich mit Möglichkeiten zur 3D Modell Erstellung beschäftigt, stolpert früher oder später über den Begriff Photogrammetrie. Gemeint ist damit eine Technik, die es erlaubt, aus Fotos eines realen Objektes ein digitales 3D Modell zu generieren. Doch keine Panik, liebe 3D Artists, niemand muss um seinen oder ihren Job fürchten, denn wie so alles im Leben hat auch diese Technik sowohl Vorteile als auch Nachteile. Da einige der Vorteile aber doch beachtlich sind, wollen wir hier einen genaueren Blick auf häufig verwendete Photogrammetrie Lösungen werfen!
