You can throw away the DeWarp photo, Metashape cannot work "correctly" with it.
(Unless you don't care so much about precision.)

General / Re: Confidence math
« on: April 07, 2022, 09:44:39 PM »
Hello Glenn,

For the dense cloud points the confidence value means the number of the depth maps involved to the point generation process. The value is integer.

The confidence value for the mesh vertices carries the statistical information about the averaged number of depth maps used for the model reconstruction in the neighborhood of the given vertex. The value is float.

Wow, I think this is the first clear statement about this.
Thank you!

It was exactly in such a project that the problem arose at that time.

This is one of the worst objects you can choose.
It is reflective and "contourless". If it's just about the shape, spray or "sprinkle" the whole thing with a matte paint.

Either you change the exposure, or you have to shoot for more "visual blending points".
Alternatively, you can set markers manually, yes.

Ok, here is a folder structure of the project...
Is it possible to get something out of it?

These entries are missing in the

<depth_maps id="0" path="depth_maps.1/"/>
<dense_cloud id="0" path="dense_cloud.1/"/

I'll keep trying...

Bug Reports / Repair crashed project?
« on: January 08, 2022, 10:03:13 PM »

I have a project here that has been calculating for 10 days.
Now Metashape is no longer "responsive" and I could not save it.
However, the resource manager shows me that the calculations are finished.
When I load a 2nd instance and try to open the project, I am not shown the pointcloud that should be calculated.

10 days calculation for nothing would be very painful!

The folder structure "seems" OK to me though.
(dense_cloud / depth_maps / point_cloud are "full to the brim").

Can I get the data somehow?

Thank you!

General / Re: Creating / Exporting DEM for Terrain Awareness DJI M300RTK
« on: January 06, 2022, 11:21:42 AM »

I can only report with the "Terrain Awareness" mode of the P4RTK.
The size limitation also has something to do with performance. On my remote, the handling of the DEM file is very slow.
When exporting the file, you actually only set the resolution to a lower value. With the Phantom, less than 5 metres are not taken into account at all.
If necessary, you have to create several files instead of one huge one that covers the whole project.

Excellent, it works!
Until now, I had always tested it on a non-safe project.

OK, this one works with a standard text.

import win32com.client as win32
outlook = win32.Dispatch('outlook.application')
mail = outlook.CreateItem(0)
mail.To = 'XXX@XXX.XX'
mail.Subject = 'SAMPLETEXT'
mail.Body = 'SAMPLETEXT'

With Alexey Pasumansky's suggestion to use the project name, it doesn't work.
(However, the suggestion is from 2017. Maybe it doesn't work with the 1.7.5 version?)

SAMPLETEXT = doc.path.rsplit("/",1)[1]
import win32com.client as win32
outlook = win32.Dispatch('outlook.application')
mail = outlook.CreateItem(0)
mail.To = 'XXX@XXX.XX'
mail.Subject = SAMPLETEXT
mail.Body = SAMPLETEXT

Unfortunately, my scipting skills are very limited...  :o
However, a standard text is more than enough for now.


I am looking for a "simple" solution to send an email when a Metashape project is finished.
(To be used in a batch process.)

There is already an approach here:

I need a "simpler approach", without registering SMTP servers etc.
At my work we use Outlook and have no direct access to the servers.
A simple "Mail:TO" or similar must be enough.
Then a mail should be sent by the user who is currently logged in.

Does anyone already have something like this in use and could make it available?

Thanks in advance!

General / Re: Camera Calibration for DJI P1
« on: November 20, 2021, 12:14:19 PM »
If you use several photos, the calibration is recalculated each time.
But this also depends on the photo variance.
If I take more than 100 photos (and I always do), no extra calibration is needed

Bug Reports / Re: Video import not working (tried 1.7 PC and 1.8 Mac)
« on: November 13, 2021, 10:39:08 AM »
I think you need the H. 265 codec.
If the decoder is not on your computer, it will not work.
The video import from Metashape does nothing other than save video in pictures.
Metashape itself does not have any codecs for this, but only takes those from the operating system.

Camera Calibration / Re: Adaptive camera model or calibration groups

...split in two. That is for sure.

That is of course a very good approach!
For the classification, I still prefer the approach where the terrain is evaluated "from below".
This way there are no "stumps".

I often classify terrain on slopes, where Metashape has problems, but I'm going to try out the new version.
