New Trial user - Not getting many points of a body scan
« on: September 23, 2017, 05:45:10 AM »
I'm trying to scan a person by spinning them and taking multiple photos. I input around 15 pictures, but I always seem to get very few points when it scans. So i had a couple questions.

1. Even when I use photo shop and cut out all the background, the app doesn't seem to "see" the whole person, but pieces of them. Do I have to go in and "paint" points over all of my images
1.a should I remove the entire background from a picture for this app? If not, how do you handle a person clothing matching the background (or do you have to switch a white background out if the person is wearing white clothing)
2. Why does the app not "see" the photos I've feeding it? They are fairly high quality DSLR pics, well lit and not overly far away.
3. When a photo is detected for points, and I don't see most of the image covered by them, is that an issue? what causes that, and do i need to do something if that does happen?

Below is an example of a flower i tried to shoot today. Took a dozen photos all with the flower center frame and larger amount of the picture. but the app chooses to see almost none of it point wise and instead "sees" a ton of ground. I also attached one photo showing the dots it chose to mark

Hello marriott001,

Can you please send some images from the problematic set to support@agisoft.com and also to provide the project re-saved in PSZ format (PhotoScan Archive) after alignment.
