Mesh - filter by selection + crop + reset filter
« on: February 26, 2019, 05:29:25 PM »
following steps show how using the mesh crop tool in conjunction with mesh filtering isn't completely right.

1. select part of the mesh, and filter by selection
2. select part of the remaining filtered mesh, and crop to selection
3. reset filter - the filtered out part of the mesh is lost and so reset filter effectively does nothing at this point

4. undo - the part of the mesh removed by cropping is now restored
5. reset filter - still the filtered out part of the mesh is not displayed so reset filter again has effectively done nothing

6. select a part of the remaining bit of mesh, and filter by selection
7. reset filter - now you get all of the original mesh back!

it seems that there is no way to crop a filtered mesh without also losing the bit that you filtered out

*using metashape pro version 1.5.1 build 7618 (64 bit) windows 10

Hello James,

Thank you for reporting.

We'll check why the mesh filter is not behaving properly and will try to fix it in the next version update.
