Can´t merge chunks models
« on: September 14, 2015, 12:03:24 AM »
Dear All,

It seems that nothings happens when merging both chunk models into 1. Is this happening to anyone else?

Thanks,
Manuel Franquelo.

Hello Manuel,

Unfortunately, can't see on the screenshot, if the chunks are aligned or not.

Hello Alexey

Everything is part of the same object:

- Since my computer couldn't handle mesh generation because of RAM I've split the project in two chunks by duplicating the exiting chunk and removing one half in each chunk. They should be already aligned as the dense cloud generation was done when they were one chunk.

I've successfully generated the mesh of each side of the object but I can't seem to merge the mesh into one complete thing now.


Best,
Manuel.

Hello Manuel,

Chunks can be merged if they are Referenced in PhotoScan: [R] sign should be present in the Reference pane next to the chunks labels.

So you can use camera baes chunk alignment (probably with fix scale flag on) to align them with each other. Or alternatively use the following Python code line in the Console pane after making each of chunks active:
Code: [Select]
PhotoScan.app.document.chunk.transform.matrix = PhotoScan.app.document.chunk.transform.matrix

It worked after aligning the chunks "camera based and fixed scale", Thank you!

I'm also new to photoscan (literally got it 2 days ago) and I'm having problems merging chunks. I imported the halves of a handaxe as 2 chunks, one for each face. After alignment and merging, you can see they haven't merged properly. What should I be doing?
