How to align components in MS Standard?
« on: November 14, 2021, 10:21:46 AM »
Metashape 1.7 has the new Components feature, but the tutorial only shows using Markers to manually align/merge them.

How can we do this in Metashape Standard?

I have a model that's mostly aligned great, but there's a little section missing, in an area where the quality of the data is not great due to the conditions during scanning, but it would likely be possible to align it if i did have access to markers.  The problem area is in shallow water, where the visibility is not good, there's less overlap, and the sun rays completely change the colours of the rocks, so always cause problems during alignment.  The mesh of each bit would probably match up great, but MS just can't align the photos
The missing section/component looks to be aligned ok, but it's just just not connecting to the rest of the model.
