I’m pissed off… sorry.
I’m working on integrating Photogrammetry Tools into Blender. (Photogrammetry = getting 3d Data from Images).
Basically a 3d Scanner from Images.
Everything works fine, but the main issue is: Blender has no vertex colors for single vertices… This means concretely: This Point Clouds need to be cleaned up - delete “noise” vertices. I’d like to do this in Blender - But without having Color on those Points it’s almost impossible to do…
This single “issue” renders Blender pretty much completely useless for anything Point Cloud related, which is imo a shame. (together with normal calculation every time edit mode)
I’m way not the first confronted with this issue - i have seen forum entry dating back 2006…
So why the hell do we don’t have Color for single Vertices??? Is this a very difficult thing to do?
Nowadays with Lidar Scanner Data widely used in VFX - I don’t think Point Clouds are something such exotic…
I’m really about to ditch Blender for those kind of things… Which i think is too bad, since we could have nice 3d Models from Photos within a few weeks (for osx at least atm).
I really don’t know how to go about things like this… Is there any use of contacting BF about this? What do you think? Should we somehow make some noise for this? Or should i just leave Blender for such things?
