Python API - Make Selection for Crop?
« on: December 15, 2014, 11:09:09 AM »
Hi All,

I'm currently using Photoscan Pro and I am trying to write a script that automatically from scratch builds a height field, scales it, crops it, closes holes and finally calculates volume.

I am stuck on the cropping part where I am able to do a 'cropSelection' call but I can't seem to find how to make a selection automatically (through coordinate or otherwise). (I need to tell it which selection to crop)

I would like to know if it is possible to make a selection through scripting at all? I tried to see the Python API but I can't find any function for it.

Hello Majestic12,

If you are planning to crop polygonal model, then you need to loop through all the chunk.model.faces, perform your own fit-criterion (for example, if all vertices of the given face lay in some global polyline) and apply .selected = True to the face you wish to remove later.

But please note that in case of big face count the script will work rather slow.
