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,

Looks like its in Prerelease 1.1.0. Great!!

Just wanted to add: TIF 16bit Half-Float enables us to do a full linear workflow, with post modelation and rendering. We could manually convert to 16bit after, but than we would still have rough 8bit color precision.

So my second request is, when exporting in 16bit, does PS calculates the more precise color values for that format. Internally you shouldn't just convert from 8bit to 16bit, otherwise you would loose color precision.

Take care

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

Thanks for sharing and supporting the idea of shared computation! I hope PS can get into this asap, in order to reach more peoples environments. Not every can buy a 8k $ machine having 500GB memory or so.

Well, I understand that the computation of heavy data driven project in a distributed environment isnt that easy, but I believe there are ways to achieve it. The biggest challenge is probably how a single node/slave can work on an isolated task, where the necessary image and point cloud data gets isolated too. In my personal projects I prefer quality over speed. So memory usage is a big issue for me.

So can we isolate processes, that only a particular part of the data needs to be in memory for nodes/slaves which have limited memory available?

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.

General / Re: What exactly do the reconstruction Quality labels mean?
« on: November 23, 2013, 06:17:13 PM »
I wonder why you don't call it that way

Agree, would suggest to extend the label like:

Ultra (Original image size)
High (Reduced by 2)
Med (Reduced by 4)

and so on...

General / Re: Agisoft PhotoScan 1.0.0 pre-release

Hey folks,

i got an error loading a project file, after switching from a previous 1.0.0 beta to the current build 1771. My file PSZ is 12GB bit containing ca. 30 chunks. Before it works without problems, so it shouldnt be a problem of RAM. After the half is loaded i get the message "Cant open file".

Whats wrong, where are logs? A clear error message or an error code with a reference to documentation would be great to make this product even more professional.

Take care,


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.

Dear friend, in python, list() will create you a copy of the camera collection. So you iterate over the temporarly copied list, while you remove the true/permanent list. If you don't do that, you will remove elements from a list, that you iterate over. Hope it gets clear? :)

Python and Java API / Re: Automatic mask generation?

Great Alexey, it works.

Thanks! So now I can continue my script... :)

Dear Alexey,

thanks for your reply. That worked so far. So I made some tests and got a small success detecting a simple black/white colored image using this command:

img =[0].image()
PhotoScan.utils.createDifferenceMask(img, (0,0,0), 50, True).save(r"d:/tmp/test_mask.png")

The RGB tuple represents black color (0,0,0). So far so good.

Then i tried a real image (see attachment). I picked up different colors (e.g. paint) from the sky in the image and tried the same command as above but without success. I also tried to use 100 tolerance, but no success. Here are colors I tried out:


The result was always an empty (white) mask image.

What did I do wrong? Do I need to use another color picker, other color format?

Good luck :)

and be sure to shoot in high ISO (max. 200)

Get more pics from different angles...

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 :)

Tkae care,
