Create beautiful and accurate virtual reality scenes, textured 3D meshes and more from images or laser scans – automatically and in minutes.

RealityCapture is a state of the art all-in-one photogrammetry software solution that automatically generates beautiful and accurate 3D models from a range of ordinary images and/or laser scans.

RealityCapture runs on x64bit machines with at least 8GB of RAM, 64bit Windows 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10, graphics card with nVidia Cuda 2.0+ GPU and at least 1GB RAM.*

Data input

Create a 3D model with images, laser scans, UAVs, or synchronized camera rigs. Mix different inputs to create a visually consistent triangular 3D model. No restrictions.

Create a complete 3D model from 3,000 photos in an hour on a computer you already own.

Reality Capture Application Preview
The user interface of RealityCapture

Unique in every regard

RealityCapture is a fully functional application with a comprehensive, easy-to-use user interface, an extremely fast, state-of-the-art core and a number of unique features. Go beyond the limits of what can be achieved with photogrammetric methods with amazing speed, quality and accuracy at low computer hardware usage. Registering images, calculating meshes, texturing, parallel projections, DSM, geo-referencing and coordinate system conversion are just a fraction of what you get with RC.

Laser & photos

Laser scanning meets state-of-the-art photogrammetry – all in one package. Laser scanners are natively supported within the application and are also fully involved during the position estimation of a camera or laser scanner. This results in truly unbeatable accuracy.

Analysieren & Fortsetzen

Super-fast design mode that aligns 500×12 megapixel images in less than 10 minutes on a notebook, right on the spot. Combine all types of data – images, laser scans, aerial photos…

Analyze directly on site and get what you need efficiently.

  1. Take photos and add them to a project                                                                                       
  2. Click on draft alignment                                                                       
  3. Review the result                                                                 
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 until the desired result is achieved.

Return home with all the data you need from the field. You'll never have to waste time on calculations again. Simply combine partial reconstructions into large scenes. Work in parallel with your team!


Unlimited number of photos, unlimited scene sizes, unlimited detail. Algorithms automatically divide the problem into smaller parts that best fit your hardware.

RealityCapture brings great freedom to your work. Just concentrate on your goals and let the software do the rest. You don't have to limit yourself to a small number of photos because RealityCapture is amazingly fast. With the appropriate computer equipment, the calculation of several thousand images is possible.
