Realviz, an image processing software developer, has announced that VTour, the latest addition to its software portfolio for content creation, is now available. The product, which was unveiled at the recent IMAGINA show in Monaco, draws on the technology of Stitcher and ImageModeler and offers users of all levels a solution for the creation of photo-real 3D environments from 2D pictures or panoramas.
Starting directly from digital photographs, or from full 360-degree panoramas, VTour facilitates the creation of 3D scenes such as interiors or urban areas using polygonal photo-textured primitives. The results can be exported/published as either a 3D movie, or as an interactive application using 3D viewers such as Spi-V3d viewer, based on Shockwave.
VTour has been developed for use in a wide range of applications, such as virtual walkthroughs inside buildings and monuments, 3D simulation, virtual reality, urban planning and video games, and is also suited for the creation of virtual sets for film and television. VTour complements StoryViz, Realviz's 3D previsualization and storyboarding software, enabling users to create photo-real backdrops for their previsualisation projects.
