Topofusion in video
« on: November 22, 2007, 09:27:55 AM »
How can I use Topofusion?  I am working on a series of trail guides to introduce trails, show how to get there, were to go, what food, support, and hospitals are in the area. The video has a topo overlay with 'signs' to tell the new rider what to look for while riding. It also helps folks decide if that trail is at their level.

OK, this sample is 98MB. But this is 720x480 at almost DVD quality and you can make out the detail.

Full WMV - 98MB Open or right-click and save as

Youtube kills the resolution, but it is here now

I have a 3D capture too, but I have not added the audio to it yet, so it is not ready to show.

I am reworking it, so I may see about adding climbing analysis in spots to show the climb and descent better.

Hey, thanks for posting that.  Sure looks like a fun trail to ride, and you get a pretty good 'feel' for it in the video.

So the 3D model came from TF - how do you determine the bike position and orientation?  

Interested to hear/see more!

To synch the video, I compare the map that I created and exported with the features, waypoints, and directions.  I can then scan the video for turn by turn and figure out where I might be missing a point.  It can be a bit of detective work, but I can then get left/right/left in synch.
