What parameters did you use for alignment? Like quality and matched points limit.

hi Stihl !
Precision : high
Pair selection : desactivated
Points limit : 40000 - (test with 400000 same results)

Can you tell me the effective overlap in the photos by right clicking on the chunk in the workspace tab and clicking on 'show info'.

Do the holes get filled up if you enable interpolation for your mesh?

What resolution are your original photos?

Have you tried aligning at medium rather than high setting? If so how do the results compare?

Are the images you posted of the sparse point cloud after Align, the dense point cloud after Build Dense Cloud, or the mesh? If they are of the sparse point cloud Build Dense Cloud. Build Dense Cloud will frequently fill in areas where Align does not find many points.

The resolution is 24 Millions of pixels.
Yes medium has been used, no amelioration.
The image posted is a dense cloud, more than 5 millions of points.

Hi

From my experience with plants, wind is a serious issue.
You could get missing parts for branches moving with wind;


Also, when building the mesh, try the "mild filtering" .

In this case we diden't have wind.
And  the pictures were taken at the 1/500e.
I think also that i diden't have taken enough pictures

In my experience, Photoscan doens't leave any holes if you enable interpolation for your mesh generation from the dense cloud. Even though the dense cloud shows holes, if the mesh is interpolated it fills those areas up with pieces from the original imported photo's.

I added 40 pictures (85 to 125).
Pictures added were with angle about 20° to the land.
The 85 are with an angle of 90° to the land.

It seems that is needed to have angle and not only pictures parallel to the land.
I have now a generation without hole. I believed to have only parallel worked.
Thanks to all
