Epic’s new RealityScan app converts smartphone images into 3D models
While our RealityScan models resembled abstract art rather than believable 3D representations, there could be a variety of explanations for their inadequacy. Perhaps our iPhone cameras are insufficient. Perhaps we weren’t in an adequately illuminated environment. It is possible that we did not take enough scans or did not capture the necessary angles. Additionally, because the app is debuting in a limited beta, Epic is likely to continue iterating until the app’s formal release.
We believe the software has considerable potential, since it may be a really useful tool for quickly creating 3D models using only your smartphone. The iOS version of the app will be available in early access in the spring, and an Android version will follow later this year.
