Come on and step in! You are standing in Pi-Ramesse the capital city of Ramesses II. in the 13th century BCE. Have a look around and use your cursor to move the view. Maybe you will be able to find a hint of the upcoming exhibtion of Ramesses II. in Karlsruhe this month!
One of our reconstructions got published in an article by Gunvor Lindström about the Oxos Temple in Tadzhikistan. The project page of that project is still not on our main site, but I am sure it will follow soon. In the meantime, you can give the article a read, it is in deed interesting.

As another side project, I tried the “Structure from Motion”-method and recorded it. The results can be seen above. I had no color chart lying around, so there is no color correction. The result is not perfect, but pretty good. It is amazing what the software is able to do these days. The process of calculating the 3D model from the photos took about 4 hours (you won’t see that in the video). The process of rendering the final image in the 3D software was much quicker. Hope you enjoy!
As a side project, I started to do a little speed modelling. For that, I googled an image of some ruins that I liked and tried to rebuild that image in 3D as good as I can in as little time as it needed. The result is a 4:20 video, of a process that took me about an hour. The result is of course not perfect, but as this is my first try, it is good enough. If there is time, there will be more of these speed modelling videos. Hope you enjoy!
The newspaper “Berliner Morgenpost” has published an article about us (in German) in yesterday’s issue. It is under the segment “career” and talks about our work, ambition and goals. If you are interested, you can find the article right here.
