recalculate selection
« on: September 26, 2013, 03:58:38 PM »

I think it could be useful to be able to recalculate only one part of the mesh. You could for example have a model in medium resolution and recalculate one small part in high resolution because that detail is more important or so.

Simple to do.

1) Duplicate a chunk which has the desired cameras/photos aligned.

2) Adjust the size and orientation of the bounding box in the duplicated chunk to fit the area of the object where the higher quality is desired.

3) Optional - In the duplicated chunk disable the cameras/photos not needed with the revised bounding box. This is not required but will speed up building the geometry in the duplicated chunk.

4) Build geometry in the duplicated chunk with the desired quality.

5) Because the alignment of the photos between the two chunks was not changed the two chunks will have the same alignment. To have the chunks show in PhotoScan as aligned run Align Chunks for the two chunks using the Camera method. This should only take a few seconds.
