My DIY is reborn again

A long time ago someone asked about a guided camera mount for doing macro and I showed a simple wooden construction with drawer guides, which I was using then and was building for my friends. I remember that it generated a somewhat unpleasant controversy about its quality ... Here... https://www.pho...

Yes, my Stackshot is very old. Now I am designing a new linear rail with all the precision that I can manufacture in my garage workshop. And a friend is creating for me a control box that will allow me to work in theory below the thousandth. Or at least to the limit that the mechanics allow us. We'l...

Steps in Stackshot

Recently I have changed my camera for macro to a 2000D. This camera has a pixel much smaller than the previous one and consequently with the same distance between images now appears banding and I must reduce that distance. But it is difficult to reduce that distance because I am already at the limit...

I will have several days busy of work. After that, I will try my first tests.
Many thanks for share your knowledge.

Retouch in Helicon

Is anyone using Helicon here? I keep doing 3D tests even though it seems that the result is not enough for what I want to achieve. I have tried the retouch with Helicon and I do something wrong, but I cannot locate where I am wrong. When I paint in an area to copy image of the source I get not a per...

In the end I recovered my Helicon license. The soft looks much better 10 years later, although as I thought the resolution is not enough for the 3D I need. Actually on a surface of fairly smooth curves covered by a skin that contains the image and gives it that detailed look. But if the surface is l...

I'm going to resuscitate my old Helicon license. I haven't used it since I have Zerene, but maybe now it has a second chance.

balancing whites in the lighting

These days I have printed in 3D a second version of my adapter for the Rogonar S 35mm, with 10 LED housings to create a flat, ring lighting. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49472246261_a236a8bccb_c.jpg Everything works fine, but the colors of the LEDs obviously do not look anything like the colo...

I used a similar device for years to hold reflectors and diffusers. But instead the copper wire I use a flexible arm cannibalized from a cheap computer microphone from the Chinese store. I have six of them, and never I have enough...

I have spent much of the day trying to understand the creation of a 3D volume in Photoshop ... without luck. I manage to texture the basic shapes by default (cylinder, sphere ... bottle, what were the Photoshop programmers thinking?:roll:) I also get your "hedge hog" ... but I can't apply my depth m...

Gracias, JL I have a soft for to convert a serie of shots in a 3d model. in fact, I have made some tests with successful outcomes. That part, on one side or the other I think is fixed, I know the least two soft possibilities for to do it, so for now I want to focus on the conversion of a stack into ...

wow! how much information! I believe that with a synthetic 3D, created from the deep displacement of the images of a stack, it will give me enough information for what I need. I have also tested rotating objects and many photos from all angles (an old music disc player is a good platform to start) a...

How to create 3D images?

Hi. For a new, exciting work, I must create 3D images of objects that are not too small (5 mm) but that already require stacking of images so that they are completely clear. These 3D images must be able to be exported to my 3D engineering software. I know that Helicon does this, but perhaps because ...
