    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. The library is composed of modules for feature extraction, image matching, features matching, camera calibration and localisation, depth maps estimation, meshing and texturing.

    The library is open-source and free to use under the MPLv2 license. It relies on standard and open-source file formats (OpenEXR, Alembic, OBJ) to facilitate interoperability.

    The framework is cross-platform and uses the GPU for the most computational intensive step.

    Meshroom[2] is the graphical user interface built around AliceVision. It has a 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 industry[6][7] and now in many other industries including manufacturing[8], medical[9], cultural heritage[10], tourism[11], archeology[12][13], biology[14], surveillance[15] and 3D printing[16]

    The Meshroom software and the AliceVision framework are referenced in hundreds of academic publications[17][18] and have been presented in various conferences (Siggraph 2018[6]/2019[19], FMX 2019/2021[20], ASWF-OpenSourceDays 2020[21], Eurographics 2021[22]).

    The Meshroom software prebuilt binaries have been downloaded more than 800K times in the first 2 years[23] from more than 200 different countries.

    AliceVision Association[edit]

    The AliceVision project is supported by the ALICEVISION association, “a non-profit organization whose ambition is to democratize 3D digitization technologies from photographs”[24]

    Interoperability and integration with other software[edit]

    AliceVision stores the Structure-from-Motion results using the open source Alembic file format, that can be natively loaded in most 3D software. The final 3D textured model is exported as an OBJ file with textures in JPEG or EXR for high-dynamic range colors.

    Multiple importers for the Blender software and for the Autodesk Maya software are available[25][26][27]

    SideFX[28] has made an integration of AliceVision[29] into the Houdini software.

    The Imperial College London has created Scant[30], an open-source low-cost macro 3D scanner to automate the captation of insects using AliceVision.
