Re-Point to Folder Path for missing Images.
« on: February 21, 2012, 11:03:05 PM »
Hi Alexey,

Last suggestion for today I promise  :) would it be useful to integrate a path pointing tool? So you can right click on a Chunk and re-point missing photographs by selecting the folder location using Explorer? the refresh so they reappear or load back into Agisoft?

Currently I find I have to move .psz builds, or align files around allot, renaming folders, moving across networks, sometimes Agisoft cant find the images, as it is pointing to a different directory and there is no way to re-point to find them. Being able to guide the Chunk to reload them would be most useful.

Thanks, Lee

Also would be great to offer option to save relative image paths so you can move the project file around.

++1 (oh wait! I started the thread :) )

This could also be useful to re-point to new lighting conditions or different textures. Also useful for projected noise pattern reconstruction and then for texturing. As long as naming conventions are the same.

You just go to "Photos" pane, then re-point to new folder like "folder_01b" then update to new photos. Otherwise you have to close Agisoft, physically remove old photos to temp folder, then swap with other folder the new images, then open Agisoft again.

But I have a feeling this will not be easy to implement?

This feature is currently being implemented and will be included in the next update.

@Nico: PhotoScan saves relative image paths inside the project files. Please make sure that you have tested it properly.
With best regards,
