About a year ago I made a tutorial about photogrammetry (the one you can get in my signature). Since then it has been downloaded countless times, and I'm super happy about that!
At the time it did mostly focus on tileable textures, which I used to do a lot.
However it has been more than a year and I have learned so much since, I think it needs to be updated (not that it is not accurate anymore, but it could be improved). Rather than just update I feel like it would be better to make a completely new tutorial, that doesn't focus so heavily on textures, but more on photogrammetry for games in general. I started laying down everything that I could include and quickly realised that if I want to be "in-depth" it could have hundreds of pages.
Therefore I'd like to know more about what you guys feel would be the most useful
- Would you rather get a not-too-long but not-too-in-depth tutorial, or do you not mind having hundred of pages to read? (I add many pictures don't worry )
- What do you think is under-explained in the photogrammetry field so far? Capturing pictures? Processing pictures? Cleaning cloud? De-lighting? Converting to PBR? etc...
- What would be the reason you'd like to use photogrammetry the most? Rocks? Foliage? Buildings? Textures? etc...
- What do you think is the biggest issue with photogrammetry at the moment? What could be improved?
- If you guys read my previous tutorial, what was lacking? On the other hand, what was especially great?
- What do you think is the best format for such a tutorial? I usually like simple pdf the best, as it is easy to go back and forth, but wouldn't be against a video tutorial if you guys think it suits best. Also, do you think it needs projects files alongside it to help reproduce the steps?
- What about a website/blog that assesses small steps/subjects at the time in order to keep the tutorial more alive and up to date?
That would really help me narrowing down people's needs
Last thing, I'm a strong believer that education should always be free, and I'm never going to ask any money for tutorials. I do this because I like photogrammetry a lot and would love to see more people doing it!
