    Thanks,

    If you have any problem loading the sample project, please go to the download page to get latest version.
    I left errors related to the localization and decimal separator. I'm right now updating the files to correct those errors.
    There are more, but with time I hope to get them all.

    I've not yet tried your tool since I have neither notepad or web cams :p

    But I'm thinking about wether it might be possible to do your magic from ONE camera - GoPro, drone attached with a sort of 'split screen' done with mirrors to still obtain stereo, only in same frame, this would also eliminate ALL sync/focus/colour -issues, etc.

    Food for thought ?

    Hi,

    I'm alive! I'm paying attention to what's going on.
    I'm working on a new version, but really slowly. Work and family are priority, but I think all is calming down and I will get some free time to work on PVS and a new project I have to use the point clouds.

    great your back, I've progressed with the plan a tad using a static laser scanner which makes it a bit more of a serious project with organising & when it finally comes to it .....actual scan time etc but I think results will be much better, I'm seeing the scanner in action next week
    (doing some scanning that's unrelated to sim racing etc )

    but out of interest it will be great to get hold of one of your (latest) point cloud so I can examine close up the physical road texture ?

    if your system gives half decent results it means almost any track can be scanned during a not so busy open track day


    edit, I'm trying to get I'm with a local track at the mo,
    with a faster scan method I thought it would be a good idea to do some street circuits -scanning some actual roads close to my house,
    so it would be a real environment real roads but a non existing race circuit
    ( barriers / cones added )
    public roads (the ones near me) have an awful lot of character and I'm wondering how well that would translate into rf2

    brill

    I'll give it a try over weekend, I'll be also getting a sample scan from the static scanner to have a fiddle with, I can let you have that for you to compare too if it's of use to you etc

    I'm very interested in road surface & more than anything else -irregular camber / small inclines / declines etc so it'll be interesting to see how your scan stacks up

    cheers again
