Feature Requests / Re: Cull/Cut by Low-Density tool.

What you could try is the following:
  • Roughly select the area you don't want, don't have to be much just a little part/bit
  • Now use the page up and page down buttons to control the size of the selection(you'll see the selection grow or shrink)
  • And press delete when you have the desired area that you want te get rid off

Hope that makes your process a bit easier


Feature Requests / Re: Split depth generation as separate task?

I second this, it would be great if you were able to re-use the depth stage for recalculation of the mesh.

Well we already bought the GTX 570, but we can always a anotherone to that if it's not quick enough. Plus a HD 7950 should also give you a good price/performance.

Thanks for you reply Alexey Pasumansky!

Now im even more sure to go for the Sandy Bridge 3930K, and 64GB of ram! :D
It's just a matter of finding the 3930K :( They are in short supply in Europe....

Well your right about the limitations that all current systems have.  8)

Our main goal is to use Arial photo's to reconstruct a city/rural area, but because of the high expectations and quality standard my company has we require a lot of overlap so we can shoot the area in one go.
This however has the downside of generating a lot of images that has to be processed.  :(
And it take like, forever to get a mesh out of it.

Currently i am running some test with 500 images, but that will likely increase overtime to incorporate a larger area. Processing the mesh at "Medium Quality" with around 500 images will make the program halt on the "Generate Mesh" stage, and it gives me the " Out of memory" error. Kinda annoying but it generates it nevertheless with "Low".

Perhaps a question for you Alexey Pasumansky, what would you recommend as a system that has to be able to process a lot of images (500+)?

Well the comparison to 123D Catch (awful name, liked photofly a lot better) is not really fair.

123D does all the processing on a cluster of pc's over at Amazon and were just using our consumer grade hardware. Of course there will be a huge time difference ;)

You could try Alexey's suggestion on lowering the quality settings, which should translate into your model being generated a LOT faster.

Thanks Kjellis85 for your feedback!

So your saying that 32GB of ram could not be enough in some cases? So 64GB would be even better... Hmm i'll have a look around if that would still be on the budget.

What kind of system are you using Kjellis85?

Btw, i meant the 5770 ;)

Hey guys,

We already have a license and the software is a real treat. I'm absolutely loving Photoscan, just the current system might need a upgrade to process the data faster.

I am currently using a I7 920 with 12 GB ram and radeon hd 7750 graphics card.
What kind of systeem would be the best i could currently buy? I mean what kind of hardware do you guys use to process your meshes?

I already look around the internet a bit for a more powerful system and came across the following:
Sandy bridge E : I7-3930K
32 Gb mem
Asus p9x79
128 Gb SSD
NVidea GTX 580

Would this system be a good upgrade? And any and all recommendations are welcome!
