Here's a video by Vallette Thierry showing how to map a photograph to a 3D object and then simulating a camera move. This is a really cool technique if you're pulling your hair out trying to build virtual sets for greenscreen. Now I've seen a similar technique built in After Effects, but this one is pretty direct. Now I'm not sure what 3D program was used, but the technique should be fairly simple to duplicate in other programs. If you're too broke to shell out for a 3D program, you can get BLENDER for free.
