Merge Chunks not working 1.70
« on: January 13, 2021, 03:44:30 AM »
I'm also having issues with Merging Chunks

Here's one chunk


And the other chunk


When viewing them both together with the "Show Aligned Chunks" button it shows them together like this...


But when I use Merge Chunks with these settings...


It only displays one side, ie


even though it's showing double the cameras and markers etc...



Am I missing something.

Hello twistedpancreas,

I am not observing such issue in 1.7.0 release version on some random projects. Can you please share the project (with two original chunks and merged chunk) to support@agisoft.com, so that we could check the operation for the specific project?
Best regards,

I'd like to share the project but I work for a university and they're very strict on these sorts of things so sorry I can't share the file.

I've noticed it in a few other projects I have done in the past few months but I fixed it by slightly moving one of the chunks and then Merging and that worked, but not in this particular case.

Hello twistedpancreas,

OK, I'll try to reproduce it again on some random project. Can you please specify, how the chunks have been aligned - were you using Align Chunks operation or whether the manual alignment (using Move/Scale/Rotate Object instruments) has been performed?

Thanks Alexey,

since the Align Chunks wasn't working and the edges are very thin I had to manually align the 2 chunks.

Thanks.

Actually I worked it out, I had to scale both Dense Cloud chunks up and then re-tried the Merge Chunks button and it worked, thanks for the help though.
