importing large PLY freezes photoscan
« on: October 31, 2018, 11:23:04 PM »
I have imported a dense point cloud in PLY format (which was exported from Photoscan, same version), but Photoscan freezes at 69% (when using my python scripts: it keeps running forever). I have tested the scripts for several projects without problems. So I wonder if there are limitations on the size of PLY files? I have opened the PLY-file with meshlab and I don't see a problem there.

Hello hluong,

How many points are there in the cloud?

Which export parameters you have used for this cloud, does it contain point colors (if so, then in which format - bit depth), point normals?

Can you provide the related log from the Console pane, so that we could see the last message of the operation?
Best regards,
