decimating point cloud
« on: April 17, 2015, 11:57:27 PM »
Hello, I created a model from 500 images taken from a UAV.

I created a dense cloud of points in Superexcellent quality containing 1,100,000,000 points.

These points are too many for me, but if quality process in a inferiror I will obtain errors that are not admissible.

You may decimate the point cloud before being exported ?.

regards

Hello jjllovera,

Unfortunately, it is not possible to decimate the number of points of the dense cloud directly in PhotoScan.

Cloudcompare is excellent for this task.

Hi

Also works great recap Autodesk.

I wanted to decimate the cloud PhotoScan, to perform the classification of the points most agile.

The 64 gb of ram that I have, are not sufficient to classify the dense cloud of points.

Thank you all for your interest and time spent responding
