Hello

I'm currently researching the advantages and disadvantages of generating meshes from Depth Maps and Dense Clouds. My findings from trial and error are as follows.
Overall, the Depth map is a superior method of generating meshes when a large enough set of photos is available.  It creates a more detailed mesh with less noise and processing time and skips the dense cloud generating step.
The Dense Cloud method is better when a smaller sample of images is available but creates a noisier, less detailed mesh.

I was wondering if there is a detailed documentation or use case for when to use one method or the other. I couldn't find anything useful on my own.
