General / New Import Depth Image feature
« on: December 07, 2022, 08:24:18 AM »
Being able to import photos with a depth map image in the meta data is what I've been asking for since I first started using Metashape. It works and it works very well, however, it has a few things I'd like to bring to the devs attention hopefully.
I'm using an LG V60 with the ToF sensor. The only way I know how to capture the depth data needed is by using the portrait mode on either the stock camera app or a GCam app that's been ported over from the Pixel phones. This mode does some heavy post processing on the main photo captured. My V60 has a top notch manual mode with great results but no way to use it and capture depth data with it. This isn't Agisoft's fault by any means but something I had to mention.
What could be done differently is during the import process though. I've found that if an object is too close to the ToF sensor at the time the image is taken, the depth data isn't saved but the normal photo is. You have no way of knowing which photos in your dataset have a depth map along with it or not. So when importing a large group of photos and a few mixed in didn't capture the depth data... Instead of just not importing those few images it refuses to import any of them. Good luck sifting through the 100's of photos to find the few rotten apples.

I love the new feature and I'm not complaining a bit. I'm just wanting to help make it reach it's full potential.

Thank you!

This won't be the answer you're looking for but I thought I'd chime in.

With my current home Spectrum upload speeds (10mbps) it would take 40 days 17 hours 46 mins to upload 4TB. I've requested a feature here in the past to remotely upload to the cloud. That way people like me with crazy slow upload speeds could take an external HD to greener pastures and do it.

Pricing wise (may not matter in your case) it's going to cost you $500 for storage alone. Add in all the hours for processing, you could buy a high end desktop PC for near the same price of one project.

Something to consider.

That worked perfectly. Thank you.

Thank you very much, Agisoft support has been very helpful. I shall give this all another go and save the SRT file this time around.

Ok so I've just come to the conclusion that DJI (Mavic Air 2 at least) saves the gps data to a separate SRT file on the SD card. I have formatted my SD card several times now since that flight. This is a huge bummer if this type of data is not in the metadata of the video file. I import into Lightroom, format the sd card and have it ready to go again. Lightroom doesn't see an SRT file as anything valuable and ignores it. Can Metashape take advantage of this SRT file? If so, how? If anyone knows why this info can't just be embedded in the video file itself please explain why. 

Agisoft Cloud / Remotely Upload to Agisoft Cloud
« on: August 14, 2022, 07:34:09 AM »
My main desktop rendering PC is at my home with only 10 mbps upload speeds. I'd really benefit from a way to bring my photos to a different location and be able to upload there. Either from a laptop or even from mobile. Or is there a way to upload from my Google Drive to Agisoft Cloud, without using my PC as a middle man?

Ok I've sent the .MOV file to that email address. Let me know if you need anything else.

Same issue here. I was excited to see "Added support for GPS meta data import from DJI videos with embedded subtitles." in the latest change log for Metashape. So today before I did a video I double checked that Video Subtitles was checked on my Mavic Air 2. I just got home and imported the .MOV but nothing as far as location is in the output PNG files.

General / Re: HDD vs SSD - data processing time
« on: August 06, 2022, 03:03:52 AM »
In 2022 I can't see using a HDD for anything other than archiving previously used media or data. If your C Drive (OS and all programs) isn't installed on a SSD, either sata or NMVE, then you need to reevaluate your entire rig and do some research too. 

Feature Requests / Sort Photos by Quantity of Markers Detected
« on: July 17, 2022, 12:34:36 AM »
Using a turntable and pre-placed markers printed out on a paper, in combination with the "Detect Markers" tool in Metashape. It'd be nice to see what photos in my dataset had the least amount of detected markers. Then, before I even did the alignment step, I knew which photos needed markers manually added to keep the alignment accurate.

Here's 196 photos with depth maps in the EXIF. These would make a great model if only the embedded data could be taken advantage of.

I hope this helps.

I have the exact same problem except I'm using an LG V60 with the ToF sensor. I've hunted the internet, posted in other forums, reddit, GitHub and nobody can offer any suggestions. I know the depth data is there because I can extract it using other methods.

I apologize if this has already been requested. I'm sure I'm not the first person to have this idea. Instead of locking the project in a frozen state while a long step is being processed.. why not instead lock it on a chunk by chunk basis? I mainly mean working on the steps that are not very CPU intensive. Adding/adjusting markers, deleting points from the point cloud, masking etc. Even though the 8 cores and 16 threads of my overclocked 3700X are all at 100%. Puget Systems claims that the Threadripper's 64 cores are not all taken advantage of and have no problem running 2 projects at the same time. 

Feature Requests / Reselect Command
« on: July 11, 2022, 06:30:38 AM »
A reselect command like Photoshop has would be great. After smoothing only a select part of a mesh I'd like to see what that section looks like without being the solid pink color. Then if it needs further smoothing I can reselect the same points and proceed with the smoothing. Or if after spending time carefully selecting specific points, a sneeze or something might make me mis click resulting in me loosing all those points and I have to start all over.
