More save options
« on: January 14, 2015, 10:51:12 PM »
Hiya

Its probably been bought up before, but the ability to save at each step of th process would be appreciated.

For example, the ALign photos has a number of sub steps

Detecting Points
Matching points
.
.
etc

Working on a big data set (1600 photos), I'd love to be able to save at each step. And reboot , flush memory etc.
I had an align last night get through a few of the steps then crash, it would be great to be able to restart from the last completed step.

Thanks!

Hello pjenness,

At the moment we are not planning to split the Align Photos stage in GUI, however, via Python you can split the task into two steps:
Match Photos and Estimate Camera Alignment.

If the project is saved after the first step, you can close the project and proceed to Estimate Camera Alignment stage right after project open next time.

Hello pjenness,

Are you using latest 1.1.0 build?

This problem seems to be similar to the following one: http://www.agisoft.com/forum/index.php?topic=3198.0 and might be related to the preliminary placed marker projections. This issue will be fixed in the next PhotoScan update.

As for the Python functions for matching and alignment are the following:

chunk.matchPhotos(...)
chunk.alignCameras()
