I have a feeling this is where the tech for 123D Catch has gone, and the free 123D Catch will disappear. I could be wrong but I can't see the reasoning to keep free and paid versions of softwares that provide the same service. The promo says absolutely nothing about the software though and is more a nice advertisement for the AE plug-in Plexus.

I'd like to be excited about tools like this but unfortunately they've kept it cloud based and I'm not sold on that as a one-size fits all solution. As a comparison to 123D Catch, the time spent uploading my 10MP or 22MP photos to the cloud, then having the cloud process the images is longer than my machine could potentially crank it out.

I've been looking for software solutions for photos to 3D model and the only one I'm really sold on is Agisoft Photoscan. Anyone else find something close, along those lines?

Sorry this post reads so much like a rant. :) There that should help.
