For my final project, I explored photogrammetry animation, specifically, using blend shapes to deform the original photogrammetry mesh and create extreme changes and motion.

 

First I captured the subject using photogrammetry

Then I made copies, setting them as blend shapes to the original, and deforming their geometry.

The mesh gets pretty crazy as you mix and match blend shapes

I also changed textures and color to give aesthetic variance

Here’s the final result!

Working with blend shapes and deformations on photogrammetry items-

Take the original photogrammetry model (On the left) then duplicate it a few times. Select each object, with the original chosen last, and “create deformers”> “blend shapes”. You can then manipulate the duplicated objects and control the original object’s inputs to mimic the new deformations.

And the Budah gets a similar treatment..

Photogrammetry Dice, though I’ll probably just model some from scratch so they look cleaner

And here’s a creepy floating doll, haven’t decided which image this is going on, but I want it to be in a public space, somewhere unexpected.

My lost object- I lost the game. I chose a game because I love board games- the strategy and thought process is very interesting, and I prefer the physical, tangible aspects that video games can lack (nothing against video games). I also love plays on words, so taking a different meaning on the word “lost” was right up my alley.
