I know that it's still very early pre-release but here's a first test. Same settings with Mesh generated from depthmaps:

1.7.4

1.8

1.7.4

1.8


On the plus side this issue which was introduced with 1.7 seems to have been mitigated:

1.7.4

1.8

Apple Silicon support!  Yay!  I’m really excited to see how this improves performance.  I’ll be getting the new MacBook Pro when it comes out soon, so this is great!

I'm getting similar results to Mak11:

Some areas are vastly improved while others suffer quite dramatically.

Hello Mak11, hello wojtek,

For us as usual it will be very helpful to get a sample dataset that we can use for internal testing and comparison of the version results. So if you can share such data, please send the download link to support@agisoft.com.

Meanwhile, we already have some improvements related to the depth maps generation.

Hi Alexey

It says in the change log that this new beta version (1.8x) supports JPEG-R images. However, these files are imported as normal JPEG RGB files. What is the correct procedure for using them as radiometric files?
Cheers

Hello Renato,

R-JPEG files with embed temperature are loaded to Metashape Pro as multi-camera systems (you should see that option, when adding R-JPEG images to Metashape 1.8 ). After adding such images to the project, process as usual and to see the thermal orthomosaic use Raster Calculator - define thermal formula for output index (likely should be the following LWIR / 100 - 273.15), enable transformation and adjust the palette display.

Only for flir format? non dji format?

Hi Alexey

fjgarciam made the question I was going to ask too. I have thermal images from H20T and from Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced and, in both cases, are not recognized as R-JPEG images.
They are, indeed, mounted as multi camera images but both RGB and Thermal images appear as regular JPEG's.
Cheers

Hello,

If you could share a few R-JPEG images that are not automatically treated by Metashape as multi-camera system upload adding photos, it would help us to improve R-JPEG data support.

Hi Alexey

Just sent you a small set by email from Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced.

Yes, currently only FLIR format for R-JPEG images is supported.

I know we can shuffle the old version to a new folder and install the new version in the standard folder, so that we can have both installed, for testing...  Even the licence works without copying over any files now i think...

But could we have an option in the Installer, on the 'Destination Folder' page, so that it installs it in a separate folder, and has it's own preferences storage?  Perhaps with with the option to import your production version preferences over during install.

It could be installed installed in the "C:\Program Files\Agisoft\Metashape 1.8.0 Build 13257 Pre-Release" folder, say... Automatically including the version and build number perhaps.  And including these versions/build number in the Start Menu shortcuts, etc.  So dead easy to find, differentiate from our production version we have installed.

Later, it'd also be easy to cleanly uninstall these test versions from Windows' Apps & Features list.

Then when the new version is formerly released, we just install that as normal, and it updates our installation as it usually does.

We could then have as many old and newer versions installed as we wanted, really easily, making testing and benchmarking dead easy too.

Hi!
This dataset (https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1xdqbvDTD2uIzJqweTw0BJ-gd8nHvxEG8?usp=sharing) was working before but is now crashing in build 13257 when generating a dense cloud.

Steps:
Import all photos.
Calibrate cameras - Spherical
Align cameras
Build dense cloud
Crash!
