Export orthophotos - bottom projection
« on: February 26, 2019, 06:52:20 PM »
Sometimes i scan/reconstruct a whole room, then duplicate the chunk and crop each one to walls, floor and ceiling before generating orthomosaics in the respective projection for each chunk (top/bottom/front/back/left/right). Ceiling chunks get a bottom projection.

it may be the case in left/right/front/back projections too, but i've only had this problem using the bottom projection, as follows:

it seems quite temperamental about exporting orthophotos if you generated the orthomosaic using bottom projection. In some previous version it just didn't export anything, and in the latest [1.5.1 metashape pro build 7618 (64 bit) on win 10] it seemed to export just a random subset (although it was the same subset each time i tried).

flipping the chunk over and rebuilding the orthomosaic in top projection seems to solve it and they all export successfully, but it would be good if the projection didn't make this weird difference!

Hello James,

Can you post here any examples of incorrect and valid orthomosaic for the same area?

Sorry i missed your reply. There is no problem with the orthomosaic, they generate/export beautifully every time.

The problem is if i try to export the individual orthophotos for any orthomosaic generated for a planar projection other than 'top'.

So for example:

I could reconstruct a building and generate a lovely orthomosaic of the 'left' facade using 'Left YZ' planar projection, but if i right click the orthomosaic in the workspace, and select 'Export Orthophotos...' then choose a folder for the images - nothing is exported.

I suspect perhaps this is because the resolution is specified as X and Y but the images are all in the YZ plane?

Some sample console output of generating an orthomosaic with planar Left YZ projection (although the specific projection is not indicated in the console output?), and then attempting to export the orthophotos, with the offending few lines right at the bottom:

Hello James,

Thank you for additional information. There seems to be an issue with the internal ortho projection definition. The fix will be implemented in the next update of 1.6.0 pre-release.
