Here is a free program (Autodesk 123D Catch Beta) that can speed up asset creation:

8 core 2.5 Xeon /12 gb RAM DX 64 Cuda / 560GTX-Ti. I always use the latest build.

Yeah, speed up I can't say. Zbrush isn't for this job obviously, lot of lost time.
Much better in blender, better topology tools, very easy transferring of multiple UVs to a new clean one etc etc.
Staying on free ware apps.

"you can do the same in 3D coat" Wow! I didn't know that. 123Catch needs 40 or 50 shots to get decent results. How many does it take in 3D Coat? Are there any tutorials? You can see why I thought this the appropriate forum. ^_^

I used this sketch app when it used to be called Photofly (a better name IMO). It's OK but isn't really detailed enough for my liking. I "scanned" my friend's head with it and it had a lot of trouble with some areas.

Why should the first video be easier than the normal workflow?
Only advantage i can find is the foto-texturing, but modelling a chest like that would be done in a few clicks, why retopo a cube ;)?

Even photo-texturing wouldn't take more than the 5 clicks needed fort the visible stuff. Their app uses dozens of camera clicks plus all the clicks necessary to use them in 3DC.

Please don't forget: Not anyone works in Games and even needs Retopo.
Having marker-less scanning available from photos is extremely cool for many applications.
