    Hi. I got Promo version and found it very promised.
    But editing heavy meshes in external programs its damn slow.
    Will be great to have simple editing tool build in. Lasso + Delete - its all I need to remove some unwanted parts on the mesh.
    For example - grass, small glitch parts and ground(base).

    Hello, it is partly possible, with the filtering tool - see the attachments below:

    Hi Yegor

    if you need to remove something from the actual model, you first need to set the RECONSTRUCTION REGION and then use the FILTERING tool with its options to filter unwanted stuff from the model.

    Thank you. Its helps a bit. But will be good to have a comfortable tool to cleanup point cloud before mesh calculation.

    Hi Yegor

    We do not use intermediate pointclouds for mesh generation.

    What sort of data are you processing that you need to do this cleanup?

    Hi Wishgranter.
    In viewport I see only point (mesh view still don` work for me) so I think your software works the same as Photoscan - did a point cloud then scaning and meshing only on export.
    I found a small parts on exported models needs to be removed. Filtering not always works good for me. Some times its filter good parts cause they splinted by algorithm in groups (sliced in boxes) and some time its smal enough to get filtered with dirt I need to remove.
    Also I found some Pikes on the oped edges (usualy it bottom of the model). Its easy to remove in Zbrush, but its time wasting and can be done much faster in soft.

    Hi Wishgranter.

    It would be very helpful to have a lasso tool or similar to get rid of floating anomalies/points. Agi and Autodesk have a similar tool and it proves very useful indeed. RC has much better overall compute, but we all know that sometimes it is necessary to clean up a little bit as you go.. I would like to do this cleanup in RC like Agi and Autodesk softwares already allow.

    Do you think this is a feature we can expect from your team any time in the near future?

    I am also casting a vote for this feature. It just seems a natural way to go. There has been also somebody else to request this in our Facebook group...

    I need a lasso tool too. Bounding box filtering is not a good tool for non-convex situations.

    I do also 100% agree with this topic. I don't want to buy Photoscan just because I do not have such a simple tool here. But it looks like I will have to for the moment. Please guy implement this.

    I have scanned some fjord cliffs in Norway, and CR did a great job.
    But there is a lot of trees, which I want to delete because CR obviously can't reproduce trees, and Forest Pack do a great job. It's nearly impossible to delete trees on a cliff with a bounding box, only a lasso can do that.
    I tried to removed most of it, but there is still a lot of unecessary vegetation, with a huge face & texture cost.

    +1 to lasso and rect selections, also to the delete key. having the option to hit 'del' to remove an image from the computation list rather than manually removing them would be a fantastic boon to the overall workflow.

    Indeed, lasso is my tool of choice when cleaning up either dense cloud or result mesh, in any tool I use (photoscan, blender, 3dmax). Would be great to have it allready in capreality. Also for having the possibility to texture only what I need without the need to reimport.

    i love the adding points to photos workflow, you can do that very quick in RC,
    but for a faster workflow on removing parts we need this:

    + Lasso Tool for selecting
    + Delete key to delete selected points

    +1 lasso
    +1 delete key

    also, selecting points by colour would be really nice - a simple and straightforward thingy with a tolerance for RGB values.
    I could use this a lot for white-ish points I often get from the many reflective surfaces I have to scan.

    I'm a little concerned, because there has been no word from devs even though this feature has clearly been wanted for some time already.
