Python and software results do not match (downscale parameters?)
« on: September 18, 2023, 08:09:07 PM »
I can't understand why the Python and software orthomosaic results are not matching.
I've tested different downscale parameters, but it looks like some functions like buildPointCloud and buildDem do not have these.
The Metashape Python Reference says nothing about these parameters (at least from what I've read). I'd suggest adding explanations of these into the Reference.
Could the lack of a downscale parameter be why I am consistently receiving incorrect results?

TIA
Robin

I am also wondering if the Point Cloud quality is dependent on the buildDepthMaps downscale?

Yes, if you compare to the GUI, Build Point Cloud refers to buildDepthMaps and buildPointCloud from the script. So any parameters you'll choose for depth maps generation will influence your point cloud generation.
