Moving on

September 26th, 2011 by Henri Leave a reply »

I’ve spent almost 4 years at but it was time for me to move on. I’ve quit my job and I’ve started to work at Acute3D in September: they are working in the structure from motion and dense 3d reconstruction field. You can try their dense mesh creation technology by using Autodesk Photofly. Photofly is calibrating the cameras using Autodesk implementation and then the mesh is generated using Acute3D technology (Autodesk has bought a license of their meshing technology).

I’m working on the development of a calibration system (like bundler) at Acute3D. I’ve decided to work with them as I think that they do have the best technology available and I wanted to work with very skilled people working in computer vision.

I don’t know if I’ll be able to continue writing on this blog as this new job is really more interesting and challenging for me.

    Will be unfortunate if the blog fades, but happy for you getting a job that it sounds like you will love.

    I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading your blog for some time now, and want to say thank you for all the great work/posts you given us to enjoy.

    All the best,

    Congratulations Henri! I am sure we will still be using your stuff in some form or another even if the blog slows down. :)

    Uuu this is bad news at first as many of these open projects will probably dye, but the good point is that your talent will met with other at the same level. Acute meshing~texturing tech is by far the best, but the feature extraction in photofly is extremelly poor and makes the process frustating. Hope this fusion reports ahigh end comercial product.

    Congratulations on the new job but i will really miss your inspiring blog and code implementation.

    Congratulations Henry!
    I am a user of Acute 3D, they are really really great. I hope you find a nice place to work.
    Your blog made me research more about 3D features, so my best wishes for you.
    God Bless You.

    Congratulation for your new job.
    Wish all the best in the future and thanks for your experiments.

  7. Henri, congratulations on your new job!

    As everyone above has said, we will be sad to see this weblog of yours slow down, but we will be glad that the reason is that someone is paying your for your talents.

    All the best!

    Hi Henri,

    I wrote the Acute3D people already two times, but never got an answer back. I would like to try this software in my research and compare it to all SfM solutions I use up till now. Hope you can help me with a demo version.

    Thanks and keep up the good work!

    @all: thanks for the nice words! I think that I won’t be working on my toolkits anytime soon (as I’ll be working on a real product for Acute3D). But I’m still interested in learning new stuff and improving my WebGL PhotoSynth Viewer (another post is coming very soon about it!).

    @gEEvEE: Acute3D doesn’t have a product for end-user right now, but you can already try Acute3D technology by using Autodesk Photofly (limited to 40 pictures).

    I’ve been away for a while, but wanted to say thanks for everything and all your hard work. Best wishes!
