General / Camera Export into 3Ds Max
« on: December 03, 2016, 01:48:56 AM »
Dear community,

I struggle exporting my camera's into 3Ds max. A couple of years ago there was an option to export in FBX format, which successfully allowed to export to various software, like 3Ds MAX or MARI.

With 1.2.5 Prof. I get a couple of camera export formats, but it seems none is common in the big 3D modeling softwares? Am I right?

If anybody has experience in successfully exporting/importing cameras into 3Ds Max, would be great to listen!

take care,

Feature Requests / TIF 16 bit support

Does PS support TIF 16 bit export yet? If not, would like to see that.

Feature Requests / Different Texture Resolutions Per Chunk
« on: November 30, 2013, 05:15:26 PM »
I prepare models in different texture resolutions (1024, 2048, 4096) and would like to keep different textures in one chunk. Practically that would remove the need to have for each texture resolution duplicated chunks. Therefore the model export needs a drop-down with generated texture resolutions. Well, all textures work with one UV in that case.

Feature Requests / Flexible Bounding Box
« on: November 21, 2013, 12:10:55 AM »
Currently, the bounding box is a cube. My models are usually not flat and can contain many different chunks, which are connected in a very flexible and "un-cuby" way. Having a bounding box which can have any form, would give great possibilities to my workflow. For example I could  compute with python automatically the my bounding box according to existing camera amount per chunk. My current workflow is based on removing parts of the dense or mesh to have no overlapping chunk parts.

Python and Java API / getString with default value?
« on: September 10, 2013, 12:53:34 PM »
Der folks,

I am working on a script to auto-mask images and I get the tolerance value from the user using PS.Application.getString("Tolerance:"). Is there a way to put a default value in the form, to set it, e.g. to 10? Otherwise, this would be a feature request :)

Python and Java API / Automatic mask generation?
« on: September 09, 2013, 11:39:21 AM »
Dear folks,

i wonder if anyone tried yet to autogenerating masks. In my case I treat lots of high reso images (> 500) by hand to mask the sky out. Taking lots of time, little bit annyoing :)

So does anyone or does you guys from Agisoft has a semi-automated solution for that?

When I think of that task as a developer I would let the user (me) pick a color and tolerance, than search in the image for lets say larger areas of this color and similar color (tolerance), like the magic picker function does. Than append that area to the mask. Hence save. Afterwards the user needs to check each image, which should be easy, by looking at the mask-preview in the photo area.

I would prefer a python API solution, to have controll over the process.

Any ideas? Maybe an external tool can help?

Take care,


Feature Requests / ALT: Rotate
« on: September 09, 2013, 01:54:20 AM »
When selecting points or faces, i switch between rotate and selecting tool quite a lot of time. I suggest, if not yet there (and I missed something), to rotate/move while holding a meta key like ALT and without ALT i can select. That would help to not switch all that time between these functionality.

Feature Requests / selection tool: only face/front
« on: September 08, 2013, 01:19:34 AM »
the selection tools should have a mode to select either through or only the visible geometry in front of the perspective.

Consider this example: you have complete 360deg room, from top to bottom and all sides, so kind of a cube. You want to select a particular wall. Current the selection tool will select "through", so even what is behind the geometry-wall (another wall, objects, etc.). Even when moving the viewpoint into the room, that you see it from inside, the selection tools are selecting whats in front, as whats in your back.

Is very important for my work.

Python and Java API / API: access to selected images
« on: September 08, 2013, 01:09:52 AM »
would be interesting to know which images are selected, in the API.

e.g. to export some of them undistorted for later texture remapping in an external tool.

Feature Requests / Bunch of requests
« on: August 31, 2013, 06:05:20 PM »
I have several requests, some more interesting some less:

A) ptex support
B) when having many chunks, a flag feature is cool, to fastly sign the state of a chunk for myself, indicating what to do next (e.g. re-geometrize, aligned successfully/next phase, etc.), because i work sometimes simoultanously on different project, i can forget
C) Rename a Chunk using keyboard "F2"
D) Delete a Chunk using keyboard "DEL"
E) Make manual reordering of Chunks possible
F) Show high points/vertex/face humbers with dots to indicate thousand steps: 1.000.000 (depends on local format)
G) show memory usage peak when a chunk has been aligned, build, textured, etc. to indicate if i can try a better quality
H) allow my favourite python scripts to be accessible via a one-click-button from console the menu (kind of automatic most used scripts)

If someone find one of the features interesting, than it vote up

Python and Java API / Console Update
« on: August 30, 2013, 02:07:09 AM »
Hi folks,

i run a script which loops over a bunch of files to organizing them through naming conventions. So it looks something like:

for file in files:
    print ("Moving", file, "to", there)
    shutils.move(here, there)

I wonder why the print statement isn't showing up anything in the PS console during the loop is working. When the loop is finished and all files has been moved, than all print message appear in the console.

Yes, i minor issue, but i would like to learn.

Agisoft, any ideas, do i need to update the console manually, flushing something?

General / Parallel computing using a network cluster
« on: August 03, 2013, 07:03:36 PM »
Dear Agisoft Team,

first let me thank you for your great product!

I would like to know about efforts and roadmap for the phrase on your site (about us section):

- parallel computing using a network cluster

As there anything going on and do you have information about it, that you can share, timings, specifics?

We run several times on our  RAM limitations and thats pretty annoying. I know its not about your software, its tough work to process. Especially i wonder if you can overcome the RAM limitation by using virtual memory from SSD? Probably thats not so easy or not possible, as you work on physical memory addresses directly using the MMU. Also the GPU access data from the RAM, therefore the swap isnt used anyway, as it's a kernel/cpu feature. Do see any chance, to reduce the needed amount of RAM, by any kind of technique?

Take care,


General / How to overcome RAM Limitation
« on: July 10, 2013, 12:40:44 PM »
Hi together,

I would like to know if someone have successfully add SWAP to the virtual memory in order to overcome the RAM limitation? How does PhotoScan perform in that case?

Take care

General / Alignment Video sequence
« on: July 06, 2013, 08:34:51 PM »
Hi all together,

maybe this is a silly question, but i didn't found a way in PS to align images by sequence. I have made a video and extracted images, so i know the sequence order and i can specify the image chain. How can i tell PS to match sequencial and not any to any image? Is there a way to do this in a text file like in visualsfm:

imgA.jpg imgB.jpg
imgB.jpg imgC.jpg

And aditionaly i would like to start the matching via command line. Is that possible too?

Thanks for your support,
