It was predicted that computer graphics would one day give everyone the ability to create their own blockbuster film. But the software used for modern visual effects is still pretty complicated for the average user. At least until this magical software that can almost instantly turn a still photo into a 3D model is available.
Demonstrated at Siggraph Asia 2013, the software only requires the user to define the three dimensions of an object in a photo by swiping along them with a mouse cursor. Everything else, from generating and texturing the 3D model, to extracting it from the 2D photograph, are all handled by the software. It does away with the need for 3D scanners, multiple images, complex interfaces, and most importantly: artistic talent.

La Pyramide de Khéops fait partie des sites les plus visités en Egypte, mais les touristes n’ont bien entendu par le droit de monter en haut. Cela n’a pas arrêté un groupe de photographes russes adeptes des hauteurs de l’escalader une fois la nuit tombée pour admirer la vue depuis cette pyramide égyptienne de 137 mètres.
A koken (pronounced like "spoken") is a stage assistant in traditional Japanese theater. They work behind-the-scenes handling scenery, props and assisting actors. It is with great respect for the legacy and humble nature of the koken that we adopt their name as our own.
We developed Koken to offer photographers, designers and artists a different kind of publishing platform. One that is focused primarily on images, can be used on your own web server, and offers robust publishing tools for web sites as original and unique as the artist themselves.
A hundred years ago, photographs depicted the truth, but now with the advent of Photoshop, anything can be fabricated with a click of a mouse. You may not believe it, but the following photos have not been altered in Photoshop and depict the real deal.
