My project results in a 3D model, so in my opinion screen shots won’t work. A picture of a 3D model doesn’t convey that it’s really 3D. You’ve got to see it moving around to realize it’s 3D. So, I spent the morning trying to find a good video screen capture tool. It took me 3 different tries before I found something that could adequately capture smooth quality video of me moving Google Earth and other 3D models around. I needed those videos in my presentation in order to convey what I had done. I finally got the videos using FRAPS which is intended to capture video games, but it worked for what I was doing because 3D modeling is like video games in that it requires extra horsepower. So, after all my work in PhotoScan, here is the final result:
