Feature Requests / bounding box
« on: February 06, 2013, 04:20:42 AM »
  • bounding box bottom is too subtle
  • once the model is georeferenced, bottom should be aligned to xy plane automatically
  • once the model is georeferenced, box rotations about x & y should be locked unless user wanted them free. A contextual menu with lock-toggles for each axis could do while allow panning is not a must here
  • render the bottom face differently when is facing up
  • ... last but not least. Dear Agisoft team, please, be my heroes!:  Could you please consider using different cursor styles suited to each tool/context?
Best regards

Feature Requests / lasso selection
« on: November 24, 2012, 05:10:37 AM »
I voted for an irregular form selection tool, so THANKS.
But I just can't manage to do fine with the lasso tool unless you have a very steady hand or a digitizing board instead of a mouse. So I'd be thankful if polygonal selection by entering vertices of a fence was also possible as it works for image-masking

Feature Requests / refining markers
« on: November 08, 2012, 10:45:27 AM »
IMHO there is a need for improvements in the gray marker's refining workflow

I hate that they move when I just wanted to validate their current position.

In my opinion, when you click on the marker, you could open a magnifier window with accept and skip icons where the user could reposition the marker by dragging, validate the gray position as is calculated and turn it blue, or skip to close the magnifier letting marker remain in gray status. (Options for magnifier might be: magnification factor, show upsampled and border/contrast enhanced crop, crosshair cursor on button down, automatic target detection by key press... )

Thanks

General / GCP faster (Edited)
« on: November 06, 2012, 10:16:54 AM »
I have not seen this posted before... well may be not that unseen  :-[
My trick to save time when using GPC
1. Align your project without GCP
2. Create blank markers using the right mouse button on the corresponding branch of the object tree. You must create as many as you have in your project. (To save time, I recommend using the same naming scheme for field collection work. (Since pscan 0.9.x you can just go to step 6 as it creates automatically ALL empty markers during import, and then back to 3... sorry, I didn't notice)
3. Choose three of your project GCP that frame your work area.
4. Locate at least two pictures containing each of the three GCP
5. Place markers on each photo selected by using the right mouse button on the image. This makes six unassisted marker placement.
6. (skip if done before) Go to the Control Points dialog, define its coordinate system using the settings button and then import an ASCII file containing: name, x, y, z. for each GCP
7. Click the Update button and observe gray markers for all GCP on their tentative locations.
8. select one marker Filter images by marker and refine the position of each gray marker dragging it to its exact position. Occasionally you can click Update to improve the absolute orientation of the model and thus the remaining gray markers will approximate better to their precise positions.
9. repeat step 8 with all of your GCP.
I hope this hint help you to save some time!

I take this point to suggest AGISOFT team to improve the gray marker's refining workflow. I hate that they move when I just wanted to accept their current position.
In my opinion, when you click on the marker, you could open a magnifier window with accept and skip icons where the user could reposition the marker by dragging, validate the gray position as is calculated and turn it blue, or skip to close the magnifier letting marker remain in gray status.

Feature Requests / lock bounding box rotations
« on: August 19, 2012, 05:10:16 AM »
I think that bounding box should be optionally liked to ground coordinate system once that absolute orientation is done by means of GCP. Height-field would then be exactly calculated.
My suggestion is to allow user to choose this behavior and also to lock bounding box rotations around x and y so that "gravity" direction kept aligned to z axis ruling the mesh creation as does in the actual terrain modeling. (the third rotation and re-sizing should be kept up to user).
regards and congratulations for last improvements.

General / export points and marker's image coordinates
« on: May 15, 2012, 01:45:08 PM »
I guess there is no way of import/export pixel/image coordinates for feature points nor for markers. Am I wrong?
I think it could be an interesting addition as it would allow us test different feature extraction algorithms or use third party tools to place markers

Feature Requests / Various wishes
« on: January 09, 2012, 10:22:17 PM »
1st. a happy new year

2. Standard views for the model(top, down, front, back, left, right) plus "car mode" option for the last four ones (that means +z pointing up).
I'd suggest to allow it by rightclick on model tab and also shortcuts like caps+F1 to F6

3. Customizable grid lines to be seen onto standard ortho views and as a switchable option in orthophoto export.

4. Model colour scale view mode.
5.  ;D I dont like soccer very much, so why not to use a colourful balloon with agisoft's logo as icon for textured model view mode
6. allow chunk lock (anchoring) and add a split-view interface for image-based 3 point picking during chunk's alingnment as a more efficient way to get the initial guess and then launch whatever you are using to get them aligned (ICP?)... I'll be pleased to explain myself further if you liked

one bug: When you are editing one marker in an image, and want to delete it (the marker) by right-click on its corresponding branch on the workspace tree, the program asks if one wants to delete the actual image instead of the marker. If user do not realize (as likely will happen), the consequence is an irreversible image deletion.

regards and +++ congratulations,

Bug Reports / Can't export orthophoto
« on: July 29, 2011, 07:14:05 PM »
I've built a model from six aerial images, everything has gone as usual but when i wanted to export an orthophoto, a popup simply warns "Can't export orthophoto". Any hint?

Bug Reports / large numbers
« on: June 27, 2011, 08:55:09 AM »
Hi, folks
I've found that ground coordinate system with long figures (ie. 123456.789, 1234567.890, 123.456) but set as local system make PS to generate ugly orthophotos.
I guess it might be related to a loss of precission associated to rounding numbers.
I'd suggest to PS team to declare a huge translation variable to shorten numbers during input and restore them to long during output.
