Agisoft vs Metashape - What is happening?
« on: May 30, 2019, 09:09:07 AM »
Hi all!

I am trying to rerun a model, previously successfully completed in Agisoft. My colleague says he only uses the 'defaults, with all the quality parameters on Ultra High or Highest' and 'follows the workflow of Align Photos>Densify>Mesh>Tile'

This worked on a relatively low spec'd PC

I ran the model on my PC, which is more powerful, but via Metashape. I run out of memory!

I have looked back at the original files and used the Info button to reconstruct the process step by step. I get to a Dense PC which has almost identical parameters (I attach a pic of the original PC info).

Then I mesh, and things go wrong. I attach a pic of the mesh set up in the original. I cannot:

Understand how so few faces come from a c. 540 million point PC
See where you set some of these parameters (e.g. Quality = Lowest)....if I accept mesh from cloud, I cannot set a quality parameter
Get such a point cloud to mesh in 2 minutes!

As a newbie to Metashape, am I doing something wrong, or missing something in the dialogue boxes?

Thanks

Paul
