OpenScanCloud - Added texture (+ Little Christmas promo)

From now on, the OpenScanCloud will return not only a detailed mesh (.obj), but texture as well. In the standard settings, you will get one or several .png files containing the color information.

In case you are more interested in the textures, there is a second setting, where AO, normal and diffuse maps are created. This setting comes at a cost of a slightly less detailed underlying mesh. If you are interested in testing the latter, please reach out, so that I can set up your reconstruction parameters accordingly.

The matchbox was created from 48 images, that neither Meshroom, VisualSFM nor Colmap were able to reconstruct. (Thanks to /u/zzzimply for the dataset and permission to show it)

Note, that I am not familiar with working with texture maps at all. So I need your help, rating and improving the output!

This will probably be the last update for this year. I wish you a Merry Christmas (or similar ;). Stay safe and have a great start into the new year :)

Is OpenScan an Open Source project?

The short answer is absolutely yes, the longer answer gets a bit more nuanced and we will have to dig into some details. So if you are concerned or just interested, stick around and feel free to share
