Create Photoreal Environments Fast in Blender 2.8 with Camera Projection

By projecting a photo over simple 3D geometry from a matched camera, you can create a 3D photoreal scene in a comparatively short amount of time. Ideal for showing models in "real-world" environments, or adding virtual camera moves to still images.
