Perfect, thank you!

General / Re: Draw rectangle polygon
« on: June 27, 2019, 07:41:19 PM »
Thanks JMR, but I'm looking for a way to do this in PhotoScan. I don't want to add another program to my workflow.

Any other ideas?

General / Draw rectangle polygon
« on: June 26, 2019, 01:37:10 PM »
Hi, I am drawing a polygon on my DEM and I want it to be a perfect rectangle. But, my selections are imperfect and the edges are slanted.

Is there any way to force the shape to be a rectangle?


Python and Java API / Re: Camera Location and Centre Vector
« on: June 18, 2019, 06:04:55 PM »
Thanks Saduka!

That got me set in the right direction, but I found a more direct way to get the camera vector in my chunk coordinates. This is the code I'm using, if it's useful to anyone.

Code: [Select]
import PhotoScan #Photoscan 1.4.1

file1 = open(path, "wt")
chunk = #active chunk

for camera in cameras: # Loop through cameras
    if camera.enabled is True: # Only apply to enabled cameras
        estimated_coord = #estimated XYZ in coordinate system units
        cam_vec_int = camera.transform.mulv(PhotoScan.Vector([0,0,1]))
        cam_vec_ext = chunk.transform.matrix.mulv(cam_vec_int)
        print(camera.label, estimated_coord, cam_vec_ext)
file1.write(camera.label + "," + "{:.8f}".format(estimated_coord) + "," + "{:.8f}".format(cam_vec_ext) + "\n")  #writing cameras

Python and Java API / Camera Location and Centre Vector
« on: June 05, 2019, 03:57:29 PM »

I have a chunk in a local coordinate system with scale bars.
For all enabled cameras I want to extract their X,Y,Z coordinate in the local system and a vector that goes through the centre point of the image.

If it's also possible, I would also like to get the X,Y,Z coordinate of the intersection point of the vector with the mesh.

Is this possible through python scripting?

Hello Alexey,

That is what I got from the GUI, I haven't tried it through python yet.

Hi Alexy,

Thanks for the reply! I tried the export orthophotos command but it is not exporting any images. I built an orthophoto on my DEM with 2 photos as a simple test.

This is what the console said. Do you have an idea of what is happening?

Python and Java API / Multiple Single Orthophotos
« on: May 31, 2019, 11:26:03 AM »
I want to export multiple single orthophotos based on the activated cameras in a chunk. I found this post here: but I am having a hard time updating it and getting it to work on 1.4 / Metashape.

Also, how do I set the projection plane to be based on manual markers that I have setup? I know how to do it in the GUI but am not sure how to achieve that through the API.


Python and Java API / Depth Maps Import
« on: September 24, 2018, 06:26:41 PM »
Is it possible to import depth maps created in an external software (per image) using the API? I want to see if I can get a cleaner point cloud and mesh using an external method to calculate the depth maps.
