Below you can see I've added a control point across 14 images. The photos are in sharp focus and the points are reasonably unambiguous, so I saw an error of less than a pixel while placing them.
After aligning, they all show wildly high error -- e.g. 'IMG_8965_DxO.jpg' has an error of 137 billion (!) pixels, even though we can see the point is placed correctly (see the purple coded view below):
After deleting that point, the rest of the CPs snapped back to ~1 pixel error.
I then added the offending point back, where it now shows as 0.2 pixel error as below:
If I move any of these points even slightly, all of their error values move to exactly 100 pixels, instantly.
To make this even more mysterious, this isn't a complex or corrupt file; I started with a clean cache and new project -- I simply:
- Imported photos
- Imported points
- Launched alignment
Has anyone seen this before?
