PPT GUI generates information about position of a camera at each shot. You can import that information with all the photos to Meshlab and generate texture out of it. Theoretically, because I get crash. You can import it to Blender too but I don't know yet what to do with it. Anyway, as you can see at the end of the video the mesh is very messy and lacks detail despite having lots of tris. I'm sure if you took more pictures the details would be better but you would still need to retopologise it. So the work flow isn't faster than current sculpt -> retopology -> sculpt detail -> low poly -> bake textures from high to low poly. What it can facilitate is to make a portraits of living people or modelling real objects where keeping exact proportions is important.

You can either use on-line version of 123d catch which means uploading your photos to their servers, or you can download the application to your desktop. The latter means registering at Autodesk. You can also use your Facebook account which apparently means adding them to list of your friends (?). 123d catch from what I've seen has some nice features for cleaning meshes and produces nice texture files. But their results don't seem to be essentially better.

      I was playing Skyrim, got bored fast. Got back to The Dark Mod just for one mission, played "Somewhere above the City" which is not really a great mission but still good, as in above-average.
      My biggest regret is living in this country, where there's a heat wave, I am sweating at 20c and I really wish for temperatures below 5c.

      Is there something wrong with the forums lately, or is it my browser? I've been having trouble formatting posts, and just now I couldn't format anything at all.
      I'm using Vivaldi.
      Usually I have to: select text, click bold, nothing happens, select again, click bold, then it works. 
      Same for other stuff, like creating spoilers, bullet points, links. Nothing works the first time.

      Back from a spontaneous 1-week trip to Lanzarote with wife and son. I hope beta testing has been going well...

      Even though I've been absent a long while, I still find myself dreamily wishing for the free time to do TDM mission development. When working on new research projects I'll find myself involuntarily thinking, "hee hee this could be a fun texture or readable or bit of map architecture." Or I find myself absentmindedly responding out loud to odd noises with a drunkguard-like "must've been rats!"
