photogrammetry software like" Photomodeler", "Agisoft PhotoScan" and "Acute3D" were still not making the 3Dmodel from multicamera positions as accurate and with high resolution as I needed it to be.
Perhaps Adobe can make a difference ? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparisonofphotogrammetry_software
I am using 9 Nikon D800 camera's to do lenticular, timefreeze and 3D modeling . No accurate and easy software ( affordable and powerfull ) software yet tried that meets demands.
Currently using twitter Pro in After Affects for inter-camera calculations. A 3D model instead of rotoscoping front from background would be helpful too to get AE and Twixtor Pro working better.
It’s definitely possibe! We’ve considered building some sort of support into the Adobe Capture mobile app, for example. Would love to know others thoughts on this topic.

Definitive need for Drone Pilots!

It would be amazing if this was actually to become a thing. I would love to stay with Adobe products, but need a Photogrammetry solution for creating 3d from media captured by Drone.

Has there been any changes on the possibility of including this feature? I would love to be able to create 3D models from both my normal camera and drone in Photoshop or Dimension.

I agree that adding photogrammetry to a desktop app would be great, and have the ability to export it to a obj file to be used in other applications.
I agree. Photogrammetry is an amazing area with vast possibilities yet everytime I see demos it just reminds me of photoshop 2D panorama creation tools. Seems like" Photomodeller" and "Agisoft PhotoScan" are some of the best current examples on the market.
Will Adobe be offering something like this soon? In the pipeline or a couple of years down the track? Main thing is a) it needs to produce very high quality results, b) it needs to be very user friendly and intuitive (which I feel is sometimes not Adobe's strength but it is improving for sure), c) needs to be versatile - eg the mesh and textures produced should be easily exportable and usable within other applications like UE4 / Unity / Blender / C4Detc. , d) pricing needs to be fare (and it would add a wow factor to CC to make it probably an irresistible purchase).
Why not just make a branch off photoshop called 3D photoshop...with all the drop down tools and additional functions that 3D photo artistry may require. ie click on the '3d applications view" and all the essential tools are just there.
I am personally quite happy that programs like "Photomodeller" and "Agisoft PhotoScan" are emerging in the 3D photo imagery space. In some ways maybe Adobe has neglected 3D and animation?? but is quickly catching up. It's good to have alternatives in the market place. Hopefully it will prompt Adobe to come back strong with innovation and especially fantastic UI options for the future. I still work from Win 7 and Adobe CS5.5 - I really am not a fan of perpetual subscription fees so haven't migrated to CC yet - it kinda feels like my previous customer loyalty to Adobe was just trashed now that my $1500 product purchase of CS5.5 is no longer supported and can't easily be upgrade to Win 10. No tech support will help - "just subscribe to CC and delete your $1500 CS5.5". hmmm
I also really like the way that products like Agisoft PhotoScan and even Sketchup offer a 'product for life', which you can upgrade regularly, monthly, yearly if your budget and circumstances allow.
So in conclusion I will be interested and hopeful to see what photogammetry options are developed by Adobe in the future - I am sure the quality would be stunning and leading edge. I am very thankful for everything Adobe has contributed to creative multimedia - still an industry leader. I will also be watching closely the way Adobe treats it's customers and whether or not fair pricing packages are offered. These days it's becoming a very competitive space afterall.

Please make first priority to have this feature in Felix, not Capture CC. Capture CC is great and also making fun, but it´s a real joke that there are features that are really needed, which are only in Capture CC and not in a real desktop app. The ability to create brushes, LUTs from photos, textures from photos etc. are great, but we need this in Photoshop!!!
The same applies for this feature here. We don´t need it in Capture, we need it in Felix. If it is ALSO in Capture CC, yeah, nice.
For some people the Adobe Capture mobile app might be fine.
I personally capture a moving subject with a multicamera rig. For most people using there own camera ( not mobile ) would be preferred perhaps when shooting a subject to make a 3D model of in high resolution.
On the idea of integrating 3D model as a way to mask the subject in i.e. Twixtor Pro : would that be perhaps a question to the makers of Twixtor ? :)
