The Lynx A camera's object modeling feature in action.
Usually if you wanted to make a 3D model of a person or an object, you'd start by looking at it. What if that was all you had to do? This is now possible with real-time object modeling. Just move the camera around the object to obtain all of its features and colors, and you are done. Export to your preferred file format and continue working! It's that easy.
