    hello, for now you can download an external library, find AprilTags and import them as control points into RealityCapture

    Cheers!
    Could anyone help someone without programming experience (as in: me) how to do that?
    I found no link for something that would run under windows... :oops:

    Hey aure,

    could you give me some advice on how to get the april tag finder running?

    I'm totally not able to do anything involving coding or compiling...

    Oh and aure, I don't know how to format the april tag finder output since I don't even know how to run it (see previous post). :-)

    But if the output file can be formated according to RC specs, it should be straightforward via Workflow - Import & Metadata - Control Points. The format is very simple, just image path/name, point name and two pixel numbers (not sure if horizontal or vertical comes first). It will be more tricky to use them as Ground Control Points, which is what I am aiming for, since I need to include coordinates from a different source for that...

    Hi aure,

    so hopefully somebody else will see this and have mercy on us!  :-)

    ANYONE?

    Maybe you can add your vote here:

    It is a year old and was high priority - might need some reviving...

    Its a pain in the ass that this isn't supported inside the software package, it really limits a lot of potential from the software, especially when it comes to general user experience and workflow streamlining.

    Also how awesome would automatic worldscale be!
