export edited points problem
« on: April 01, 2014, 02:39:47 AM »

I have a problem with exporting points to the .txt file.

After building dense point cloud and a mesh I need to edit it and cut out small fractions.
When I export points to .txt, PS exports points also from the area I removed.
It is like I never delete anything despite I tried both, cutting from mesh and from dense cloud.
How can I get the xyz file from the edited area?

One more question; when I export sparse points what are the points I get? Are they coming from the point cloud (we get from alignment, not optimized with GCP) or is it decimated dense point cloud (my goal)?

I would be grateful for help.

Dear ann,

Please check that you are exporting the same data you are working with. If because removing points from sparse or dense cloud will not effect on the already reconstructed model and vice versa.

Sparse point cloud consist of the tie points found during Align Photos stage, so actually it is the same cloud you see in the Point Cloud view mode.
