Masks and Dense Cloud Creation
« on: April 10, 2016, 12:48:11 AM »
New to Photoscan (on trial), so far getting great results. My question is, do masks used for the dense cloud have to be prepared for all photos or can a representative photo that contains the area to be masked be used, and it will be carried through out the model? I don't particularly want to prepare a mask for each photo when there are hundreds involved.
Thanks in advance

Hello rbnkc,

If you need to exclude certain area or an object from the reconstruction process it should be masked out on every photo and not on the only one..

There are several automatic masking options, for example, you can create the masks from the rough model or, if using a turn-table image capturing scenario, use background image to create masks as a difference.
