Photoscan Professional "Artist" Edition
« on: April 16, 2014, 10:20:20 PM »
In one of the threads in the general forum we discussed a Professional "Artist" Edition of Photoscan. I want to put it here to see if more users agree.

A lot of us artists would love to use the phyton scripting and "Optimize Alignment" tools in the Professional edition, but we cannot justify the 3400$ pricetag for just these 2 features.

I think a lot of artists would be more than happy to pay (for example) 750$ for a version of Photoscan Professional that is stripped of all the aerial photography features that we never need (DEMs, Georeferencing, Multispectral imagery processing, etc).

Hello marcel,

We've seen the suggestion in that topic. Is Optimization feature the only needed from Pro edition?
Best regards,

Hi Alexey,

I think most users would be interested in:

- Optimize Alignment
- phyton scripting
- markers (for automatically scaling and orienting a model)

But I don't have a Professional license myself, so I would not know for sure what other Pro features might be helpful for artists.

(I've mentioned this before, but in my opinion Optimize Alignment should included in the Regular version of Photoscan as well, because an accurate alignment is the basis of a good scan.).

I'd just be happy spending the extra dollars for the ability to orient and scale my model correctly.

+10 Yes, this would be a great option. I would say that model orientation should be included at all levels though. Python definitely is an optional feature and would make sense in a $750 version. Pretty much all softwares I deal with (I'm in visual effects) includes a scripting language of some kind.

Definitely interested. Already a pro user, heavily use markers, optimisation and python, but nothing beyond that - yet. No need for orthophoto export for example, or geographic coordinates (as opposed to local coordinates, which I do use). Need to get a few more members of staff on board in the office and that kind of price and functionality would be very appealing for any additional licenses.
