Trouble aligning chunks with cameras
« on: September 27, 2020, 05:27:54 PM »
Because of the number of cameras (c. 1000) and the limited capacity of my computer, I am building a model of a stone building in chunks. I have successfully aligned chunks of several portions of the structure using camera positions, however I am having difficulty aligning one room interior. To connect the room with the exterior, I included 14 photos from the exterior around the doorway to the room in the room chunk. Alignment etc. went fine, all aligned properly. However, when I then attempt to align this chunk using cameras, nothing happens.

Any ideas where I might be going wrong? Why might the align fail technically?

Hello William,

Are the cameras with the same labels correctly aligned in both chunks?

My bad. Somewhere in the process of merging chunks, the alignment cameras were duplicated in the larger chunk, so when I went to align the smaller chunk, apparently there was ambiguity as to which camera to use (even though the image names were different, e.g. IMG_3675 and IMG_3675.jpg). When I removed the duplicates, it worked fine. Sorry for the bother.
