Sometimes you might want to open the same copy of RealityCapture up in two instances of the software, but you will get this warning:
It is however possible to open a "read only" copy of the project by using CLI.
RealityCapture has a setting "allowReadOnly", which can only be set via CLI. This is the code to set it:
"C:\Program Files\Capturing Reality\RealityCapture\RealityCapture.exe" ^
-set "allowReadOnly=true" ^
We wrote the code into a text editor and saved it as allowreadonly.bat
Now if you already have a copy of the project open, you can run this batch file to launch another copy, and you will get the following option:
You can now open the project and use "save as" to make a copy of the project that you can edit if you like.
|Please use this with caution as it is not advised to open a project in 2 instances. If you make any changes to the original, this can cause issues with your "read only" copy.|
