    it needs more than just lasso, at a base level it should support all the basics that something like agisoft photoscan supports:

    - lasso
    - rectangle drag
    - circle drag
    - invert selection

    Hi, as for the 'rectangle drag', RealityCapture has a box-based filtering tool. Invert selection is also available.

    isn't the box based filtering tool you speak of the box volume reconstruction region? because thats not the same thing as a quick rectangle drag 2d selection method...far from it, its much more time consuming and tedious. If there is a afst 2d rectangle drag please let me know how to access.

    I agree with you all. With a big scene and lots of trees, a lasso tool to delete points before creating the mesh would be very helpfull. I hope it will be present in the next release.

    Any news from the devs on this ?

    Hello Gotz,
    we are aware of that this tool would be great to have and is really needed.
    First of all we have to fulfill some prerequisites before implementing this feature.
    Just please stay patient and keep making pressure on us! - that motivates us.

    Hey Kruzma,
    I think everyone following this thread is very happy about this answer!!!
    It's good to know it will come at some point.
    Thanks!

    Lasso would be great! +1

     

    Is there anyway to revert back to the original model after the filter has been applied? At the moment I am just saving it. Thanks

    Some news for this topic? Or other way how to clean points cloud before reconstruction?

    Struggling towards an efficient reliable workflow to model inhabited domestic interiors, huge amounts of 'stuff' to be removed, both well captured furniture etc and 'candyfloss' resulting from failed capture.

    A full versatile set of several fast and easy tools, right there within RC, adaptable to both the easy freestanding and the tricky 'interwoven' objects, would make a massive difference.

    hello batuh, you can do that - I recommend you to have a look at the Filter tutorial in the Help facility directly in the software;

    have you managed to find it?

    It would be a very great features.

    However, to my understanding of how RC work. RC didn't use these pointcloud or Tie points to construct meshes in the next step.  RC just compute and show these points as a guideline of how its register the images.  All the vertices would be computed from the aligned images using depth maps gained from these images.  So deleting these pointcloud, even if it is allow, would not have effect on the reconstruction phase.

    I'm just guessing though.

    It's a very important guess, and would be great if RC confirmed that in some detail. It's a 'guess' that seems to have gradually emerged, without official documentation or explanation, only an occasional hint.

    We do now seem to understand that the Sparse Point Cloud is only relevant in aligning the images. Once they are aligned, whether well or badly, the Sparse Point Cloud is abandoned, for Reconstruction - Reconstruction begins a completely new process starting from the aligned images (although for a quick and dirty image you can get a coloured-points version of the Sparse Point Cloud - not the same as Reconstruction).

    AFAIK that means that all the alignment stuff that's left in Cache after Alignment plays no further part - may even be deleted(??).

    I for one spent months trying out settings to get the most detailed Sparse Point Cloud, thinking it would form the best basis for reconstruction. I posted a lot about it but no one as far as I rememember explained why I shouldn't have bothered. Or maybe I wasn't listening!

    There's plenty to understand about this workflow - I'd love more discussion of it, esp from RC.
