Delete Depth Maps
« on: July 19, 2023, 08:04:39 PM »
I'm always running out of disk space. :)

Quick question: Once a project is completed, is there any value / need to keep the depth maps? Even if I were to add additional photos, I would need to regenerate them all anyway, right?

Also, if I ever wanted to color correct (I do underwater models), as long as I have the mesh, I don't need the depth maps to build a new texture, right?

I'm just trying to free up some disk space but don't want to delete the depth maps if they are needed for something else.

Thanks,

- brett

Hello Brett,

Keeping the depth maps may be useful, if you need to generate tiled model, mesh and DEM from the same depth maps data.
Also, if for any reason you would like to re-generate the model using smaller bounding box.

Depth maps are not required for texture or orthomosaic generation.
