Episode 381 – Everypoint – Jonathan Stephens

EveryPoint combines photogrammetry techniques with the iPhone Pro’s LiDAR scanner to fill in the gaps, as well as utilizes the positional / accelerometer data from the Apple AR toolkit. When combined, this delivers color 3D models that are said to be more accurate than simply using the iPhone’s LiDAR scanner alone.

EveryPoint is not an end user product in itself, but a technology layer on which developers can create their solutions, in construction and other industries.

In this Podcast, Jonathan Stephens, the Chief Evangelist and Marketing Director at EveryPoint, talks about EveryPoint, the possible applications of photogrammetry, AI and machine learning – and the future of EveryPoint.

Hi, everyone! 

This is Allan McKay. Welcome to Episode 381! 

I’m speaking with Jonathan Stephens, the Chief Evangelist and Marketing Director at EveryPoint. We talk about photogrammetry, LiDAR, and so much more! I’m really excited about this Episode! 

Jonathan and I talk about the use of Everypoint and other new tech: 

  • The Technology of EveryPoint;
  • AI and Machine Learning – and How EveryPoint Utilizes Them;
  • The Future of Photogrammetry;
  • Realtime and Other Upcoming Tech.

Let’s dive in!



[01:09]  Have you ever sent in your reel and wondered why you didn’t get the callback or what the reason was you didn’t get the job? Over the past 20 years of working for studios like ILM, Blur Studio, Ubisoft, I’ve built hundreds of teams and hired hundreds of artists — and reviewed thousands of reels! That’s why I decided to write The Ultimate Demo Reel Guide from the perspective of someone who actually does the hiring. You can get this book for free right now at www.allanmckay.com/myreel!

[37:49] One of the biggest problems we face as artists is figuring out how much we’re worth. I’ve put together a website. Check it out: www.VFXRates.com! This is a chance for you to put in your level of experience, your discipline, your location — and it will give you an accurate idea what you and everyone else in your discipline should be charging.

We talk more about the business side of ActionVFX: about launching the company, the lessons they learned along the way, upcoming technology and the importance of consistent learning, willingness to fail fast, leadership advice and so much more!

Let me know what you think about that Episode! I’d love to hear from you.
