Hello everyone,

I hope this does not overlap with other posts, but I checked and it looks nobody encountered my same issue.

I am trying to reconstruct several objects in close-range photogrammetry. I have taken pictures in two different perspectives. I create two separate chunks and reconstruct the point clouds for both separately. The issue is pretty visible when I generate the dense clouds: the object appears sqaushed vertically (relative to the position of the camera) in each of the clouds.

I tried to reconstruct in other software (like VisualSFM) and it looks that the problem is not occurring.

I was wondering whether someone has encountered and solved this problem.

I attach the screenshots of the dense clouds for each chunk. The photos were taken using a Canon 700D and it looks they are ok. If anyone needs the entire set of pictures, I can send it by e-mail.

Thanks a lot in advance, I am itching to come to a solution.
