- What do some error messages in Metashape interface mean?
Exported DEM in TIF format appears to be black&white when opened in external software.
- Orthomosaic has been generated properly, but export fails.
You are probably creating a file that is too large, click here to read the
- When exported model is opened in MeshLab the texture is not applied.
Check that you have started the Build Texture from the Workflow
menu and also that you have written the file name without spaces
between one word and the other, then insert the underscore
between one word and the other (example: the_wall).
Hello, I have a problem with PhotoScan, when I go to File / Import because I find all the commands in gray?
Hello, you should first create a new Chunk to activate those
functions of the Import menu.
Hello, i want to reconstruct old houses and temples from photos, is
that possible on the standard version or i should be needing the
professional version to do that?
To reconstruct the objects simply the Standard version is sufficient,
in this case it is possible to dimension and resize the object only
after having exported it; the interactive pdf format performs this
function well. I recommend buying the professional version for more
detailed work and in which you want to save on post-production
times and then dimension or resize the object with the markers
already present in the work area.
Good evening, what is the best way to take pictures (with drone) for
The best way to take photos for the return of a facade is of the type
parallel to its main length and inclined to capture any third
dimensions of a newsstand or bas-relief. With the drone the closer
you get the more you have detail, with a distance of 4 or 5 meters
you should already have a fair result.
Hello, I would like to rebuild a model of 600/700 photos, to be able
to save time, I’d better split into more chunks?
Dividing in more Chunks you actually get the opposite result to what
you wanted. PhotoScan works by interpolating photographs for a
minimum area of 40% and needs all the images necessary to
interlace one photo with the other; also breaking or cropping the
meshes the program must take into account the overall bond both
for the alignment and for the union of all the single pieces in a single
Why can not I zoom in on a (large) model exported to pdf?
The problem is certainly caused by an oversizing of the polygons
that you could solve with the Decimate mesh command before
exporting, but being careful not to get to lose the detail you need for
a good final result.
