Submission + - Students Develop an unbelievable 2D to 3D Object Manipulation Software (lensvid.com)

Iddo Genuth writes: A group of students from Carnegie Mellon University and the University of California, Berkeley developed a free software which uses regular 2D images and combines them with free 3D models of objects to create unbelievable video results.

The group of 4 students created a free downloadable software (currently for mac OS-X only) that allows users to perform 3D manipulations, such as rotations, translations, scaling, deformation, and 3D copy-paste, to objects in photographs. However unlike many 3D object manipulation software, the team’s approach seamlessly reveals hidden parts of objects in photographs, and produces plausible shadows and shading. This is done by using 3D models (which can be obtained freely online from many repositories).
