Photoscan 1.1.0 build 1995 - Align photos
« on: December 19, 2014, 04:13:18 PM »
Hi,

I've noticed some strange behaviour during the photos aligning - here's my procedure:

1. Import photos
2. Detect markers
3. Add some additional markers manually or place detected markers on other photos
4. Align photos

during the aligning - I have some problem with "Estimating camera locations..." (in attachment) - as you see, the percentage progress is over 100% and permanently increasing ...and never ends - need to abort

when i don't add additonal markers or don't place detected ones on other photos - it is ok - estimating camera locations process is ending on 100% and the cameras are aligned

regards,
Mac

Hello Mac,

In the version 1.1.0 marker projections are used during Align Photos stage.

But could you please check if the same problem could be reproduced in the build 1998? If yes, then please provide the log file related to the process.

Sorry - my mistake - it is build 1998 - log file in attachment (cancelled at 131%)

I'll try with previous build (1995) if it is the same

regards,
Mac

Hello Mac,

Is it possible to provide us the project file and original images for our internal tests?

In case you can align images without markers, then detect markers and save the project, we do not need original photos for testing.

Hi Alexey,

The point is that i'm not able to align those images correctly (at least part of them) ;) so if the markers projections are used during Align Photos i thought that it may help to put them manually on the photos to improve accuracy of aligning  ...then is this "never ending - over 100% progress" during "Estimating camera locations..."

I will send you those set of photos with markers file for your internal tests

regards,
Mac

Hello Mac,

Ok, we'll be waiting for them.

Please also confirm that problem still exists in build 2004.

Hi Alexey,

Any idea of the next update or preRelease, as I am stuck on this also.  (I cam from the features request thread about saving)


Happy to test the bug fix for this feature.

I have a larger data set of 1600 photos. They almost all aligned but got patches of overlapping, so am using some manual points to help, but get the infinite processing bug. (1400%+ then I cancelled it after 2 days)



Let me know if you want it stress tested    ;)

Cheers

-P

Hello pjenness,

I can suggest to export markers to .xml file and them remove them from project, then align photos and save the project. Then you can import the markers back, reset camer alignment and do Align Selected Cameras operation via GUI or using Python from the Console pane:

Code: [Select]
PhotoScan.app.document.chunk.alignCameras()
If it doesn't work, you can send the proejct to us and we'll calculate the camera alignment in our internal version and send the project back to you.
The update with the fix will be release in a week or two.

Hello pjenness,

I meant only project (.psz file) saved after align photos stage without markers and markers.xml. Original images are not required.

Trying this now.
I matched photos
Remover markers
Aligned photos (took under 8 hours)
Reimport markers
Align photos .......

The final align photos is saying 146 hours now (with markers) .....does that sound right??? Hopefully that goes down since the orgininal(but incorect) align took under 8

Cheers

Hello pjenness,

You've used Python command to align cameras?

Hiya

Yup

Nevermind, looks like after a few hours in it dropped from 146 hours to 9 remaining, I'll let it run its course.
