General / Re: Is Licensing Fixed?
« on: August 23, 2022, 04:39:06 PM »
Hello Rory,

Online activation servers are working since mid March already. Since then no "blackouts" have been observed.

If you face any issues with the older license deactivation, please contact for assistance.

Thanks Alexey, I have deactivated the old workstation and will activate it on the new one as soon as this ortho has finished.

We bought our new workstation at the same time there were licensing issues so have been using the spare license up until now. Our old workstation is about to be sold so I need to deactivate the license on it and activate it on the new one. Can you confirm the licensing issues are fixed?

Thanks, Rory

Thanks for the replies. I can confirm it works perfectly!

General / Swapping Images After Alignment
« on: August 16, 2022, 10:09:36 PM »
Hi, I am working on a 750 hectare 7900 image RTK drone survey made up of 33 survey segments of around 240 images. After alignment there are some notably darker sections where the ev fell below 0.0, roughly one or two stops underexposed. Rather than correct the exposure and realign from scratch, is it possible to simply swap out the underexposed images with the corrected ones? Obviously I would ensure the folder and filenames are identical.

If I use Lightroom to correct exposure it will remove most of the EXIF and XMP data, however now that alignment is complete does it need these data?

All good now, I used UNC paths for everything including opening the project. Instead of 30 hours it’s estimating 13 for the ortho generation. Thanks!

Hi Alexey,

I now have workstation 2 working, but workstation 1 throws up this error:

2022-03-12 18:05:36 [] failed #0 BuildOrthomosaic.rectifyImages (1/100): Can't open file: The system cannot find the path specified (3): O:/Metashape/MWOW/Full Site.psx

The path is correct (it's now on the network) so not sure what is going on!

I have a Synology NAS so I'll try copying the project over so the paths will be the same for all nodes.

General / Problem with Network Paths

I am trying out network processing but having a major issue with paths. The project is on the D drive of workstation 1, this drive is mapped as the O drive on workstation 2. No matter what I try workstation 2 always has a path error. I run the node using this command:

"C:\Program Files\Agisoft\Metashape Pro\"metashape --node --host --root "O:\Metashape Projects\MWOW"

As soon as I start processing I get this error:

2022-03-12 15:14:29 [] failed #8 BuildOrthomosaic: Can't open file: The system cannot find the path specified (3): O:/Metashape Projects/MWOW/Full Site.psx

The path in the GUI of workstation 1 is D:\Metashape Projects\

Does the project have to be on a network drive for this to work?

Also, when using a network node to process, do both machines process or do I need to start a node on workstation 1?

Thanks Alexey. Does the DEM still need to be built using the extrapolated option?

I have used the quick_layout python script for aligning water and forest areas where auto align doesn’t work, usually prior to building the DEM and ortho. Is it ok to use it with not aligned RTK cameras prior to building the dense cloud? Working on a large project with some forestry and would like the images included in the dense cloud.

Perfect, thank you

Hi Alexey,

Can you confirm that the mainstream 1.8.1 release has the offset issue fixed? I'm still on 1.7.6 but would like to upgrade due to additional features.



General / Error Opening Project - Information
« on: January 23, 2022, 02:13:27 PM »
We are currently processing a 37km corridor working in 4.5km blocks and merging the chunks for three flight segments at a time. The images are from a Zenmuse P1 at 1.1cm/px so very high resolution.

When opening one of the projects this morning I received an error about a corrupt zip archive and the project wouldn't open. The merged chunks are huge, however I opened the project yesterday without issue so not sure how it got corrupted. I tried opening the <path-to-project>\02 Segments 4-6 Files\\6\0\point_cloud\\ using Windows archive utility but the file was corrupt. Not wanting to have to generate the whole project again I manually removed the merged chunk: I opened doc.xml from the folder and removed the merged chunk (6 in this case) and renumbered the active and next chunk in the header.

The project opened fine and I merged the chunks again, hopefully without corruption!

Hello Rory,

The fix will be implemented in the next 1.8.1 update, as soon as pre-release is updated, I will let you know.

Thanks Alexey, good to know. 1.7.6 has been working fine for this project.

Hi Alexey, I can confirm my projects are opening fine in 1.7.6 and no longer have the geoid / conversion issue.
