General / Re: Metashape 1.5 build 7492 align issues
« Last post by Mak11 on Today at 01:13:07 AM »
I see same problems... most projects less than half of the images, mostly in the mid of the entire photogrammetry, are not aligned any more... Bevore more than 90% where aligned...

Yes, Metashape has introduced quite a few "optimizations" that make it less reliable than Photoscan right now (the alignment issues described here, also the new mesh generation being completely messed up in 1.5.2).

Let's up that the team is working on improving things in 1.5.3 (or at least reverting back) .

Bug Reports / Re: metashape trial wont launch and freezes up PC win 7 64bit pro
« Last post by Steve003 on April 21, 2019, 11:10:55 PM »
Hi,
I was running demo mode Photoscan 1.2.6 build 2834 thus I needed to install metascan and not upgrade to it.

I didnt uninstall photoscan before installing metashape as I saw no instructions to do so.

I then installed 3DF Zephyr but it said CUDA not found, so installed CUDA 10.1 from Nvidia and this also updated the driver from 372.9 to 418.96 causing problems with my flight sim. before reinstating my C drive backup I tried for metashape again.
I had also unblocked popups in Firefox for Autodesk which also refused to install, and installed both without kaspersky running. Whilst Autodesk still wouldnt install a third exe ( 3 exe's it required) at least metashape then ran...hooray.  :)

However the same photos and settings I used in photoscan saw it unable to centre view, zoom the object, it was as if it was installed on a win 3.1 machine !  :'(
Photoscan was slick fast, as if the object was lightweight. :)

I am Intel core i7 4790 3.6GHz  32Gb DDR Corsair Vengeance Pro ram GTX970 4Gb ram

as such Metashape was no use for viewing and editing the object, removing unwanted points etc, just could not navigate the 3D window.  :'( :-\ Photoscan is far better on my pc. :)

If Win7 64bit pro works with metashape, why is it that slow ?

I exported the object as obj to see what it had created in a CAD prog.

Opened it into Rhino3D and oh dear its a disaster,  :-\ its as if its made a top and bottom of the object then fused them together side by side, yet its the same object same settings as in photoscan which gave very good result especially considering that I didnt use masks on this test, I wanted a prog that handled what you get rough and ready when on site with museum ceilings , variable photo quality with flash, poor DoF and blurs and cables running across photos.

I expected metashape to improve on the photoscan model and as such I am gutted I had these issues after I got it to run.

 I am now back with old driver as I need the flight sim operational. Photoscan made a really nice job of another exhaust stack in 1hr 38mins and meshroom took 2hr 34 .
Why was metashape so incapable of zoom and rotate and centre view with CUDA and up to date driver ?
Now I am unable to run it, either way it was not good for me, and I so wanted it to be.

General / Re: Check of installed licence key
« Last post by csherwood on April 21, 2019, 07:42:52 PM »
I have a similar problem...but I have two .lic files...photoscan.lic and photoscan2.lic. How can I tell which one is active?

Also, I have installed Metashape. There is a file called rlm_roam.lic, but it does not have the helpful last part of the activation key. Will this help me tell which of the two license keys was linked to Photoscan when I installed Metashape?

Thanks

General / Can't move object
« Last post by William Ringle on April 21, 2019, 03:29:56 PM »
This probably has a simple answer, but sometimes when I am moving and rotating an object and the region, the object button becomes inactive (greyed out) and I can only act on the region. Any ideas?

Bug Reports / Re: Tasks.ExportModel and Chunk.Model.exportModel inconsistent
« Last post by wojtek on April 21, 2019, 02:56:11 PM »
Hello wojtek,

The inconsistency is related to later introduction of Metashape.Tasks class than common methods. Tasks class is more close to the internal representation of the processing features and therefore is also similar to NetworkTasks implementation, having similar naming convention for the parameters/arguments used.

We'll see, if we could bring everything to the same convention, but as it appears to be a major change, I think it could be expected in the version 1.6, otherwise the scripts compatibility within versions 1.5.x could be broken.


Understood, I think for the next 1.5.x release adding just the missing UV option would be beneficial.

General / GPS/INS offset in camera calibration

"GPS/INS offset tab can be used to indicate the position of the GPS/INS unit relatively to the camera center (in the camera coordinate system). " where is the camera center?the lens center?or the cmos‘s center?

Hi,  I have just installed Metashape 64bit demo , I was running Photoscan perfectly ok yesterday.

Which version of Photoscan were you running ? Demo version ? Paid/activated ? (if so why install demo of Metashape given that it's a free upgrade to ¨Photoscan? You could also create a support ticket directly with the Agisoft Team if you are a paid costumer of Photoscan)

Did you uninstall Photoscan prior to installing Metashape ?

Yes, Metashape perfectly works Win 7 64bit Pro. Also make sure to update your GPU drivers.

Also, can you kindly explain to me alexy that when we use a low alignment settings it downscales the image - so how does it overall impact the image and in what way?
