Can anyone tell me what the default settings for 'classify ground points' are (max distance, max angle, cell size)?  I have adjusted mine and forgotten what the defaults were.  Every time I close and re-open PS it maintains my last set parameters and does not return to the default.

Many thanks.

Hi Alexey,

That is fine.  I just wanted to make sure that I hadn't got something wrong.  I was just a little confused as the progress bar sat at 100% for about 30 minutes.

At about 43 minutes it started the next step (rendering mosaic).

Question still stands though... Does it normally take that long for the colour correction?

How long should "Colour Correction" take when exporting an ortho?

I have 1103 images (UAV)
Exporting a jpg at 10k max pixel dimension

Without colour correction enabled it exported in about a minute or two, with colour correction enabled it took about 5 minutes for the 'calculating colour correction' status to reach 100% and now nothing has happened for over 40 mins.  Overall progress is stuck at about 25%.

Is this right??  Or has something gone wrong / Have I done something wrong?

You have to export the results for use in GIS/CAD packages etc to be able to extract info. 

Photoscan 'basically' just gets the data ready for use on other software down the line.

Feature Requests / Gradual Selection value input
« on: September 16, 2013, 10:16:27 AM »
Rather than just having the 'slider bar' would it be possible to actually enter the value manually into where the number is displayed?

See image attached.

Sort of a feature request, but since it's related to the dense point cloud editing I thought I'd post it here. Feel free to move this post if needed.

Would it be possible to enable the Invert, Grow and Shrink Selection functions to Dense Point Cloud editing? It would be very helpful when trying to clean up the dense point cloud before building the mesh. I know it's not really the same function as with connected pieces of built geometry, but I thought I might as well ask.

Thanks! -Chad

I second that.  Or even just a 'decimate dense point cloud' function of sorts?

Is it possible to install the beta separately and keep the  0.9.1 installation for comparison purposes?

Good question???  I would like to have both on my computer so that I can continue to practice with V1.0 while still processing commercial jobs with V0.9, rather than having to un-install/ re-install every time.

Thanks for the comments.  I'll have a play around with a few options and see how I go.

Hi Wishgranter,

Thanks for the advice.  I am just trying to open JPG's.

I would just like to be able to give my clients the whole image in full resolution (jpg) after having adjusted the contrast and added some text etc but so far I have had to downsize them to 30x30k maximum.

It's not a big issue really, I was just wondering if anyone knew of an easy solution.  Perhaps Photoshop will consider increasing their limitations in the future, considering all this new technology allowing larger and larger image sizes??

Chrisd... I have CS5 Extended V12.1.  I will try Picture Window Pro, thanks.

Wishgranter... It seems that I have the 64bit version with a 64bit OS and I have 32GB of ram.  Is there a setting in photoshop that I can change?  I am a novice at Photoshop!  I am only using it to open the ortho's to edit them; brightness, contract, add text etc.

General / 3rd party photo editing software??
« on: September 06, 2013, 07:25:08 AM »
Hello all,

Question...  Obviously Photoscan is capable of producing orthophotos well in excess of 30k pixel dimensions when exporting at full resolution (UAV data).

My problem is that not many software packages can handle images larger than 30k pixels.  My versions of Photoshop and Paintshop Pro both won't open these files so I am limited to exporting orthos no greater than 30k if I wish to touch them up further with 3rd party software.

Does anyone know of a photo editing package that can open files larger than this?  Is there a way for Photoshop to open them??

Any help will be much appreciated.

Question for Alexey...

Will there be a new user manual / tutorials that accompany the new version once it is officially released?

Different steps utilise different components of your computer.  A good CPU(s) is always important for the overall running of the program, dual Xeons perhaps.  The GPU is only used in a few of the latter steps but a high end one can significantly reduce processing time and RAM is very dependant on how many images you are trying to process.  The Agisoft Wiki page gives a good guide on RAM requirements and from what I have heard, if you run out of RAM the program will crash so best to over-invest here.  Also, apparently hard drive specs don't really effect the performance of PS although I run SSD's in RAID 1 as they make everyday running of my computer super fast and secure!

I'm sure there will be other people out there that can guide you better but those are my thoughts.
