Making-of the Wielun animation

1. Search OSM data Wielun Wieluń on

2. Download OSM data Wielun Wieluń on

Downloaded file: map.osm, 2.5 MB

3. Convert OSM data

Rename downloaded file map.osm to wielun.osm.
Convert the OSM data with osm2world.
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$lpsolvepath

java -Djava.library.path=$lpsolvepath -Xmx2G -jar OSM2World.jar -i wielun.osm -o wielun.obj
We get a lot of nasty error messages from osm2world: osm2world.out
They need not to bother us. Two files were created:
wielun.obj, 4.1 MB
wielun.obj.mtl, 6.3 kB

4. Start Blender


5. Import wielun.obj

Blender wielun.obj Menu: File/Import/Wavefront (.obj)

Objects: 3319
Vertices: 62,595
Faces: 81,783

After the import all objects are selected. Scale them with the factor 0.02, because Blender is best when the models aren't bigger then 20x20 Blender units.

Add a sun and two hemi-lights so we can see something.

6. Inspect the model

To inspect the model we set a few cameras in position and make test-renderings. inspect the model of Wielun inspect the model of Wielun inspect the model of Wielun inspect the model of Wielun

7. Repair missing ground
