Batch Exporting Points from Several Chunks
« on: June 27, 2019, 01:36:53 AM »
Hi All,

I've been recently working with several chunks and I would like to export the points (XYZ Point Cloud) from those chunks into their corresponding file folders. To do this I have been attempting to use the "{projectfolder}/{chunklabel}" in place of the file Path. I have received the following error:

"
Saving project...
saved project in 0.001 sec
ExportPoints: binary = off, format = PointsFormatXYZ, path = {projectfolder}/{chunklabel}
Saving point cloud...
Error: Can't create file: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect (123): E:/1_MTO_HIIFP/2_Field_Surveys/2_LensDistortionTest/06-08-2019/BatchProcessing/2_All_Photos_Correct/4_Dense/23_Rec_P_UP_15m
"

Any help to fix the problem would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

You're probably missing the file extension there (add .xyz or whatever the format is)

Hello KurriR,

I have the same impression as wojtek, you need to specify the extension in the export path:
Code: [Select]
{projectfolder}/{chunklabel}.xyz

Thank you so much, Alexey and wojket. However, it seems to be still giving me the same error if I add the ".xyz". I have tried ".txt" and ".pts" as well, to no avail.

Is it perhaps something to do with the ".xyz" being on the line below the file name?

.xyz


"

Thanks again,

KR

Hello KurriR,

I've tried to export the points via Batch Process using the same parameters and have not faced any problems.

Which version of Metashape you are using? Please also check there there are no special symbols in between {chunklabel} and .xyz.

Can you also send the screenshot of the Batch Process task for the export with all the parameters used?

Alexey,

It seems that every one of my chunk labels had an inadvertent space at the ending. Removing that space has fixed the problem.

Thank you so much for the help and the quick responses.

Cheers,

KR
