Lidar (light and radar or light detection and ranging) and SfM (structure from motion) are valuable tools for generating meshes from real world objects. In the entertainment sector these technologies come in convenient for the production. Since both methods have their advantages this paper examines the process of using both technologies in combination. Point clouds are generated using both methods and combining the results into one point cloud and creating a mesh. This generated 3D object can be used in VFX.
