Author Topic: Opening Project files - No directory to Metashape Project  (Read 916 times)

I recently ran a Metashape Project with 3 chunks and a batch process (Align Photos, Build Dense Cloud, and Build Mesh) but did not save the Metashape Project itself before closing the program after completing. As a result, when I open my corresponding Metashape Project none of the completed tasks appear (as expected). However, I do have all the corresponding .files saved to my computer for all of the steps (dense_cloud, depth_maps, masks, point_cloud) and so forth.

Is there a way to create a directory to open these file folders in Metashape? Or will I likely need to rerun the batch process (and be sure to enable "save project after each step")?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello NickM,

If you have the alignment results in the project for the processed chunks, you can try to link the contents of dense_cloud and mesh folders by adding new lines to doc.xml in the archive (for the corresponding chunk) to the very end of the file:
Code: [Select]
  <thumbnails path="thumbnails/"/>
  <point_cloud path="point_cloud/"/>
  <depth_maps id="0" path="depth_maps/"/>
  <dense_cloud id="0" path="dense_cloud/"/>
  <model id="0" path="model/"/>
