This on-demand course will teach you how to use the FARO Focus laser scanner for capturing environment scans.
We’ll start the course by having a deep-dive of the scanner itself and familiarising ourselves with the menu and scan settings. We will also demonstrate some of the recent developments of the technology with the new Focus Premium and the Stream App.
Following on from this, we’ll turn our attention to the importance of planning and assessing your environment before you think about hitting the ‘scan’ button. We will then look at how to go about capturing a variety of scans depending on the environment itself and time pressures.
Lessons in this course
01. Overview of the FARO Focus Laser Scanner
We'll start this course by assessing the FARO Focus laser scanner and how to kick off a scan. We will also look at the most recent developments with the technology with the new Focus Premium and the Stream App.
02. Planning your Scan Shoot
Before you start scanning, it is important to review your set and plan who you'll capture the environment. Here we will look at some of the considerations you'll want to think about before you hit the 'scan' button.
03. Scanning an Interior Set
Now that we are familiar with using the scanner and we've planned our scan shoot, let's look at capturing a detailed interior environment on a closed set.
04. Scanning an Exterior Set
Your approach to an exterior environment will differ to that of an interior environment. Here we will take a look at what you need to consider and also how you can tweak your scan settings for optimal results.
05. Quick Scans for a Live Set
On a live set, you'll need to capture inbetween shots and sometimes even takes. Speed is of the essence. Here we will look at how to capture quick scans that are still very valauable for post-production.
06. Processing Lidar Scans
With our scans captured, this lesson will walk you thorugh the steps to process the scans into geometry.
07. Prepping and testing the Scan for VFX
For our final lesson, we'll look at prepping the processed scan and testing it in a 3D application to ensure it is pipe-friendly.
