Repair crashed project?
« on: January 08, 2022, 10:03:13 PM »

I have a project here that has been calculating for 10 days.
Now Metashape is no longer "responsive" and I could not save it.
However, the resource manager shows me that the calculations are finished.
When I load a 2nd instance and try to open the project, I am not shown the pointcloud that should be calculated.

10 days calculation for nothing would be very painful!

The folder structure "seems" OK to me though.
(dense_cloud / depth_maps / point_cloud are "full to the brim").

Can I get the data somehow?

Thank you!

Hello c-r-o-n-o-s,

Which type of the operations have been included in the batch (if it was a batch)?

Also can you please check, if you see any temporary folders in the project files structure - check the subfolders of project.files/0/0/
You may need to edit doc.xml file in the archive and include the lines related to those directory contents (i would suggest to make a complete backup of the project folder, though):
Code: [Select]
  <point_cloud path="point_cloud.1/"/>
  <depth_maps id="0" path="depth_maps.1/"/>
  <dense_cloud id="0" path="dense_cloud.1/"/>

But additionally it may be then required to call triangulatePoints function, as the estimated camera locations should have been kept in>doc.xml file.

Best regards,

Ok, here is a folder structure of the project...
Is it possible to get something out of it?

These entries are missing in the

<depth_maps id="0" path="depth_maps.1/"/>
<dense_cloud id="0" path="dense_cloud.1/"/

I'll keep trying...
