RAM estimation
« on: January 26, 2013, 10:00:50 PM »
95% of the time when I'm crunching data, after several hours, the program throws the "not enough memory error." Nothing more frustrating than hitting the limit after hours and hours of machine time that results in nothing.

I have to think, once the images are loaded and points are identified but BEFORE the mesh starts, you could estimate the amount of RAM required to finish the project. Is there any way for you to build an application that does this?
When things get weird, the weird turn pro.

Is there any way to calculate besides the memory requirements ( http://www.agisoft.ru/wiki/PhotoScan/Tips_and_Tricks#Memory_Requirements ) the memory consumption of the bounding box at the build-geometry-process? That would be a really good improvement for users without lots of RAM or those who split a chunks into parts.

Good idea. Perhaps something like "on this machine, mesh reconstruction can only be achived at low [medium / high] quality". The same for building texture (that's where I sometimes hit a wall).
