General / Working with Chunks
« on: October 14, 2015, 03:41:50 PM »
Hi there folks,

A quick question regarding working with Chunks in PhotoScan. I've got a large set of photos ~550. The photos are taken with a UAV, and the total scene include 8 control points with average GPS locations.

My end goal is to produce both an Orthophoto mosaic and Digital Terrain model of the study area. I can run all the required processing with a Medium setting, however my computer runs out of memory when using high quality photos.  Small details are really important for the final product, so I'd really like to create a product at the highest settings.

After doing some reading on this forum, and other online PhotoScan resources, it looks like the best way to circumvent this memory issue is by processing my project into separate chunks. I've given it a shot, but unfortunately the final product was poor.

My questions are:

1. Is using chunks the best/only way to work-around the memory shortage warning?
2. If so, is there an optimal time to split the dataset into chunks? E.x before photo alignment, after dense cloud.

3. When is the best point in the workflow to merge chunks?

Thank you in advance,
