ModelPainter is an automatic model texture mapping software. The white model generated from point cloud and texture images can be processed by ModelPainter to obtain high fidelity textured model efficiently. It includes four main functions including control point texture mapping, visual camera texture mapping, automatic texture mapping and orthoimage correction.
Control Points Mapping
Model Painter provides two ways of control points mapping: Plane Mapping and Non-plane Mapping; Former is suitable for orthographic texture processing. Non-plane Mapping is good at processing the textures which are captured with angels.
Virtual Camera Mapping
Virtual Camera Mapping is exclusive mapping method of ModelPainter. It is restore the scene,including models and camera, to original position and angel by adjusting the 3D geometry model. This method is suitable for all textures and models.
Model Painter support automated mapping of texture. It provides one-button automated mapping of multiple textures, includes minor adjustment of texture's relative position.
Model Painter provide painting Geo-referencing methodology based on point cloud. This methodology has been successfully applied into the Heritage Conservation Standard of "Digital DunHuang" project, China. Except, High quality orthophoto can be generated by ModelPainter with indicated projection plane.
