Carving a Dinosaur

21 Dec 2009 (Updated )

This is a demo of reconstructing a 3D shape from multiple images using space-carving.

spacecarving.loadcameradata(dataDir, idx)
function cameras = loadcameradata(dataDir, idx)
%LOADCAMERADATA: Load the dino data
%
%   CAMERAS = LOADCAMERADATA() loads the dinosaur data and returns a
%   structure array containing the camera definitions. Each camera contains
%   the image, internal calibration and external calibration.
%
%   CAMERAS = LOADCAMERADATA(IDX) loads only the specified file indices.
%
%   Example:
%   >> cameras = loadcameradata(1:3);
%   >> showcamera(cameras)
