Intro to Telling Stories with 3D Objects and Sketchfab
News organizations and digital storytellers have been experimenting with an exciting new way of creating immersive 3D experiences. You can learn how to capture detailed 3D models of real-world objects and spaces with just a digital camera and publish them online with Sketchfab on Dec. 3rd.
This hands-on introductory workshop will take you through the basics of photogrammetry (creating 3D models from a set of digital photographs) and provide a step-by-step guide to share and embed your work online, complete with narrative elements like 3D annotations and audio. This workshop is designed for graduate students in journalism and creative technology.
What should I bring to the workshop?
-a laptop with 3DF Zephyr Free OR a 30 day trial of Agisoft PhotoScan installed
-a digital camera (your smartphone’s camera will do)
Where can I see examples of 3D object storytelling?
