how to set vertical orientation manually ?
« on: December 01, 2020, 07:12:20 PM »
Is there a way to tell metashape what is the correct vertical orientation ?

When i stiched 2D panoramas, i can choose two points verticaly aligned and the it will be used to set the correct orientation.

Is there a way to make this in metashape ?

Each time i rotate the model to see another angle i struggle to put it back vertical. I would like to be able to click on a button and have the model vertical back. Is it possible ?

You can rotate the model, if the option is unavailable you'll probably have some reference data that is being used on which the program bases the orientations.
You can uncheck all references in the reference pane and then press 'update' in order to be able to freely rotate the model.

thanks i know i can rotate it, but once rotated i want to set it as the vertical position to be able to find it back quickly, otherwise each time i rotate the model to see another angle i have to set it vertical again and as my model is rather big it's difficult because it takes a lot of time to refresh each time that i try to rotate

You know that once you've aligned the model with the grid, you can jump between different standard views (with respect to the grid) using the keypad?
