Update transform with import data (dense cloud)
« on: February 14, 2020, 08:00:47 PM »
Dear Agisoft team,

Within an automated workflow, we would need to update the transformation of a chunk, including a imported dense cloud.
However, even if the point cloud import is done before the transformation, basic stuff (images + tie points) are transformed but the dense cloud remain at the imported coordinates.

Is it possible to include all 3D datas in updateTransform() command ? Or may it exist any solution to transform the dense cloud together with the rest of the chunk ?

P.S. I know it is impossible to "optimize" a dense cloud. What I would need is only apply a basic Helmert transform on this cloud.

Hello Yoann,

Imported dense cloud by default has its own transformation dense_cloud.transform and coordinate system

To disable "Lock Transform" option via Python you should complete following steps:
Code: [Select]
dense_cloud.transform = Metashape.Matrix().Diag([1,1,1,1]) = None

In this case the dense cloud would be affected by the applied chunk.transform as other elements of the chunk.
