Select front view picture for X/Y/Z orientation
« on: March 01, 2015, 02:33:59 PM »
Would be good to have the possibility to manually select one of the photos to define the front view.
This photo is then used as reference for X/Y/Z orientation of the object.

Alternatively the user could also select one photo as top/bottom/front/rear/left/right view.

Good idea too.
Anything that helps scene alignment is good.

I'd like to see this feature too.

No matter what you're doing it's always easy to take a few photos aligned to some reference plane that is useful to you, and then use them for alignment.

Quite often you might just drop the camera onto a tripod for example and take a 'flat' shot purely for quick alignment purposes right inside Photoscan, rather than faffing in Cloud Compare or whatever else.


Trying to align by eye with the mouse in Photoscan on the other hand, is quite a slow/inaccurate process.
