Photofly allows the user to input a series of photographs to an Adobe server which stitches them together into a 3d image and creates a grid.'

It is currently freeware until Dec 2012 as I recall. Pretty amazing stuff. Image processing is done on the cloud.

I just tried it out. I like the aproach of the software, means you can still correct many things after the rough mesh was send to you. What is also nice is that it's fast. But as allways with those picture based scanning have very limited details. The more organic your object - means the rounder and less defined your edges, the better your immediate result. Otherwise you have to to give some manual definitions to improve your mesh.

But I like that ifferent companies are developping software in this direction. And who knows how it looks like in five years.

BTW, can we rename the topic to "Autodesk" Photofly.
Adobe is another juggernaut in the software industry but, has nothing to do with Photofly.

Just a clarification
