The Viewer Comes of Age
« on: November 05, 2021, 04:24:56 PM »
If you have not spent time looking at the latest release of the Metashape Viewer, then I would urge you do so.

Its gone beyond a simple viewer and contains a rich set of tools for sharing and analysing 3D content...more details here:

One of our clients will be adopting it for sharing data amongst their user base.

Its a free product and with the latest release very much something Agisoft should be proud of.

I'm not sure us lowly Standard users can do TLS exports...

What's the best format to export out of Metashape Standard, for viewing a vertex coloured shaded model, or the textured model in Viewer?
Perhaps one for best quality, one for ease of sending to clients (size wise)?

Thanks.

The real step-change for the viewer is the ability to measure, interrogate and analyse the model and for this a scaled and (optionally) geo located model is required.

Apart from "It looks like this" - which in itself can be of some value - the standalone viewer can't really do much more than online viewing tools when it comes to handling Metashape Standard output I'm afraid.

Opitmising images, scaling, geo referencing and the accompanying outputs are what the Pro version delivers and what the Viewer is now designed to handle and work with.

As for what format...OBJ, FBX...whatever really. Some are physically smaller than others, but not tested every variation.
