- Matterport for the building section (we used Blender to embed the Matterpak OBJ from a previous building scan)
- 3DVista for the walkthrough (we extracted the panoramas from the Matterport tour).

The subject of this demo is a historical building in Trieste, Italy called the Hydrodynamic Power station.

Hi All,

Above is from the WGAN Forum discussion started by @Tosolini here:

[R&D] Mashing up Google Earth, Matterport and 3DVista

How might you use this workflow?

Perhaps you need a "drone shot" from restricted air-space?

Unfortunately this add-on does not work with Blender 3.0 and any version after that. I've tried it with 3.0 and 3.3 and I cannot even install it.

I think I saw it before and tried to install but I could not.

There is another one called BlenderGIS and it seems to work with with both Blender 3.0 and 3.3 if you use a zip from GitHub with master in its name. No need to install or use anything else apart from getting free API from opentopography.org

Yes, correct. I’m not sure about the 3D ripping from Google Earth, but I have successfully created 3D models from Google Earth Fly-Around videos in Agisoft Metashape photogrammetry software. If you then add the Google credit to the 3D, everything should be fine according to the Terms of Service of Google Earth Studio.
