Hello Agisoft Team,

After making my first tests. I have mixed feelings. On one side is very important changes, but on the other side quality of the model is lost, for example, version 0.8.5 performed in an extraction 11,338,164 vertices with the same parameters, version 0.9 performed in an extraction 1,731,924 vertices, And this is clearly visible in the model.

The loss of quality of the model is visible in the new version. I hope you can correct.


With the explanation of Alexey, the solution is clear

Best Regards,

Diego

How come these pre-releases can not be installed by the side of the stable versions on Windows... It is very easy on the Mac to have many versions of Photoscan at the same time.

As you wouldn't want to change to a pre-release only, but still would like to access it and try out.

Hello Diego,

In 0.9.0 zero face count for Height Field objects now has different meaning. Now if "0" is used in Build Geometry dialog it refers to the default (recommended) value and not to the maximum number of faces.

So if you require more faces you should specify face count to desired or exceeding value.

Hello Fabricio,

To create multi-frame chunk you need to organize images by folders and then use Add folder command from the Workflow menu.
For example, each folder corresponds to camera and each image in these folders - to the frame. So you'll have several "Camera##" folders containing "Camera##-frame####.jpg" images (naming is an example, it could be different).

Hello Diego,

In 0.9.0 zero face count for Height Field objects now has different meaning. Now if "0" is used in Build Geometry dialog it refers to the default (recommended) value and not to the maximum number of faces.

So if you require more faces you should specify face count to desired or exceeding value.

It would be very handy to still have the option of specifying "do not decimate" with some value or checkbox. Like it used to work with using 0.

How does the recommended value work anyways, does it take into account the Maximum RAM in the machine to make sure it will not cache to disk, or what other vars. are there?
