Mercantile FX hired An Orange Door to create photogrammetry for a commercial to integrate the photogrammetry as point clouds with shot, camera-tracked footage. The location was a construction site on Pico and Figueroa in Los Angeles. The director shot drone footage for the exterior reconstruction. For the interior reconstruction, our team used a Leica Disto to capture control points to help with solving the photogrammetry. Our team used Reality Capture to process the scan and the Side FX Houdini to clean up the data. 3D Equalizer was used for all the camera match moving and sent to Houdini for rendering with Mantra, and compositing completed in Nuke.
