    I came across this while searching the internet
    and thought it might be usefull.
    it appears similar to the sketchup interface and looks just as easy to use all you would need is a few seconds of video shots of a car or a house, which can be done with any modern digital stills camera set to video. import the video to the program and have fun...the current version is 0.9 and I have a copy.
    If you want more you tube demos just type video trace demos into you search engine.

    I wonder if it can get elevations from a video of a race track.
    I think I see how it works, you need more than one frame, from 2 frames it can create a stereo image much like a 3d movie works, from there it can measure depth.
