Separate scanning of geometry and texture

Postby wenzel » Tue Sep 23, 2014 3:54 pm


I'm trying to scan coated art pieces with specular coatings. The specularity is unfortunately too much to get good reconstructions, and I had to apply the chalk spray from the David online shop. This works amazingly well, but obviously I can't faithfully capture the texture of the material once the chalk is applied.

I am wondering if there is a current or planned feature to reconstruct the geometry in 2 stages:

1. Apply chalk spray and scan to get nice base geometry
2. Wash off coating, do another set of scans for color information

For step 2, presumably only basic alignment would be needed.
