Laser scanning is another method to bring existing stages or places to VR as 3-dimensional models. For our ongoing project in Dortmund we digitized a complex and complete stage with land surveying technology, turning it into a point cloud.

The necessary textures for our model are provided by the scanner, nevertheless we use textures from ‘classical’ photogrammetry to enhance it.

This video shows a completely scanned stage set, with reduced resolution and before any postproduction:
