Calculate camera position from a picture or video

This just in from the folks at Amped Software: "In the latest version of Five, we have added several improvements, like the possibility to select the layers of calibration lines to show on the picture, and the possibility to draw free hand lines (not constrained by the perspective) to help with the estimation of ground floor points.

In the just released update, we added another useful feature to the Measure 3d filter, which is the ability to automatically calculate the camera position with respect to the ground plane.

Thanks to the calibration of the perspective, once you set the reference measure, you’ll know automatically the height of the center of the camera optics from the ground.

You can simple read the value from the Camera Position parameter in the Reference tab."

It just keeps getting better.
