Bug Reports / Unable to launch on a Windows 7 machine.
« on: March 01, 2016, 01:06:36 AM »
Recently I have on windows 7 machine which is completely unable to launch Agisoft, when I launch it I get a empty cmd prompt with no text that hangs forever but does have the correct icon set. This has been happening with 1.2.3 although was happening before I upgraded versions trying to fix it. I've reinstalled it several times and that hasn't seemed to help. This computer did run agisoft without any significant problems for some time, before it stopped booting.

Let me know what additional info is needed to debug.

Python and Java API / Install python libraries

I'd like to install several python libraries on top of the standard agisoft libraries, how would I go about doing this? (The libraries would typically be installed with

Python and Java API / matchPhotos() not using all CPU cores?
« on: May 07, 2014, 10:12:02 AM »
I'm using a machine that has 16 true cores, and due to hyperthreading Linux enumerates it as 32 cores. Agisoft is only appears to be using 8 of the 32 enumerated cores. (Based on watching top). Is there a limit to the number of CPU cores it can actually utilize or am seeing lower CPU usage based on limiting factors from the disk?

<speculation> Actually, based on watching the console it is strictly handling detecting points on a per photo basis in a strictly monotonic order, which leads me to believe that agisoft is throwing all the cores at a single image at a time, and then waiting to sync the results before starting the next one. If this is the case then could would it be possible to instead handle point detection on an image per thread basis? (A lot of CPU time is sitting idle at the moment. </speculation>

Python and Java API / Running headless
« on: April 04, 2013, 07:18:37 AM »
I'd like to run Photoscan in a headless environment on a remote machine, and control everything through SSH and Python scripting, but to do this I need to be able to either start photo scan from the command line with arguments to a python script, or (even better) to be able to call Photoscan python functionality from an external python script. Is there anyway to currently go about this?

I'm interested in this from a Linux context by the way. If I have to I can probably get a full X11 session started and run it remotely over X11 transport, but that is a very inefficient way to do it, and a lot would be gained by not needing that.
