Adaptive camera model or calibration groups
« on: September 20, 2021, 05:40:44 AM »
I have a large scale drone survey with two different drones.
Is it better to manually split into two camera calibration groups or use the "Adaptive camera model fitting" during alignment?
Does it make any difference?

...split in two. That is for sure.

Hello Paul,

adaptive fitting option just allows for Metashape to decide automatically, which interior orientation parameters should be adjusted within each calibration group, but those parameters will be applied for all the cameras in the calibration group at once. So for different drones/cameras it's much better to split the calibration groups accordingly.
