Photo Match is a useful tool when putting your models into a context, however do not expect extraordinary results. If a structure you are looking to photo match has a large amount of landscaping, you will see the branches, shrubbery and anything in the foreground of the photo you are using will appear on the structure. Also, if the photo is not of high quality it will show on the model. These photo matched models are best used in the background where they can’t be scrutinized too heavily. If the model will be prominent in the rendering, use a mixture of modeled details and photo matched surfaces. TIP: The angle of the pictures that you take are extremely important, take many photos from all corners of the building and get a few different angles on the structure. In this case more pictures you have, the better chance for a decent photo match.
