AliceVision[1] is a Photogrammetric Computer Vision Framework providing 3D Reconstruction and Camera Tracking algorithms. It allows creating a 3D textured model from the analysis of a set of unordered images of a static scene taken with any type of cameras, from professional cameras to smartphones. library is composed of modules for feature extraction, image matching, Scale-invariant feature transform#features matching, camera calibration and localisation, depth maps estimation, meshing and texturing.

The library is open-source and free to use under the Mozilla Public License. It relies on standard and open-source file formats Alembic, Wavefront .obj file|OBJ) to facilitate interoperability.

The framework is cross-platform and uses the Graphics processing unit for the most computational intensive step.

Meshroom[2] is the graphical user interface built around AliceVision. It has a Directed acyclic graph|nodal-based interface[3], with a default reconstruction pipeline[4] that can be customized for specific acquisition systems or industrial workflows. The nodal pipeline is split into small tasks that can be computed on multiple machines in parallel on render farm[5].

Meshroom has been used since 2014 in digital environment creation for the Visual effects|Visual Effects industry[6][7].

AliceVision Association

The AliceVision project is supported by the ALICEVISION association,non-profit organization whose ambition is to democratize 3D digitization technologies from photographs”[8].
