Reduce Overlap = Error: empty geometry
« on: January 05, 2022, 08:02:48 PM »
Metashape Standard 1.8.0 build 13794

Aligned, done some mild Gradual Selection, ran Optimise Cameras, then created a mesh from Tie Points (i guess this is 'Sparse Point Cloud' renamed??)... Mesh looks normal.
Then, running Reduce Overlap set to 9 gives the Error: empty geometry.

Code: [Select]

This workflow i've done dozens of times before on 1.7.n

Thanks.

Hello CheeseAndJamSandwich,

I have to request a project file with the aligned cameras, tie points and the mesh model from you, so that we could reproduce the problem on our side, as it doesn't happen on several random projects.

I'm getting exactly the same error in 1.8 and 1.8.1 Build 13875.

Hello Mak,

If you have the project that can be used to reproduce the problem on our side, please send it to support@agisoft.com. It is sufficient to have aligned cameras, tie points and mesh model in the project contents.

Alexey,
So I don't need to send the actual images files, right?

PS: I've sent you a PM about an another subject which I hope you could answer.

Cheers

Mak

Hello Mak,

Yes, images used for the processing are not required. Just Metashape project with the alignment results and mesh model.

Please check the 1.8.1 release version (build 13915), the issue should be fixed now.
