Stuck on Creating Model...

    My sympathies for you... unfortunately I find this software is great for speed and accuracy but unfortunately these benefits come at a price. I reckon you are going to have to kill it and restart.
    It's a bit of a gamble... slow and steady with the competitors software but will more than likely get you an output eventually... or try your luck with the super-fast option which I think pushes your hardware to it's limits- if you do get an output highly likely it will be amazing but there seems to be a bigger risk of failure... process for hours and hours and come back to the big red error bar or a re-booted computer and back to square one.

    I for one would like the ability to be able to dial down the power a bit, at the expense of a bit of time to ensure a more reliable output. One could fine tune to suit their hardware and over time processing many projects you'd have a fair idea of what was going to work on your system successfully or not.

    Thanks Perter,
    Its very strange, the software responding well, showing the alignment report , doing inspection and stuff and even "allow" to save the project - BUT big BUT it does not really save it in the location that I pointed - just doing a fake save :(
    So I pushed the Pause button and let's see how it will respond...
    5 min passed and nothing , I'll giver it another 20min and then kill it.
    ooo after 7 min it paused :)
    Still not saving the model, temp model not updated and the log file on the line of part 17/29...

    Update:
    After pausing and resuming it seems like something working (there was writing process in the Disk and a few new files appeared in the Temp folder but they also disappeared "etilqs_******...") but it didn't work (I gave it a half an hour).
    So I aborted the process and the project has saved like 7 times (seems that when you press save it enters to a Que).
    I changed the Reconstruction Region and pressed Normal Button again!

    Hi Gal
    Kill the processing, then open it again and change the RECONSTRUCTION REGION, change the size and orientation by 10-15 %
    and then reconstruct it again ( depth maps are already calculated so it will be faster )

    Hi peterwatson
    We know about this meshing issue but it's hard to reproduce it, that‘s why it‘s still not fixed yet. It should not take long from now to finish a fix for this issue...

    Thanks,
    I just wrote an update in my previous post!

    hello, i just wanted to say my expirience with "Creating Virtual Reality" key F5, right?
    Not allways but sometimes i got a red error message at some point,
    but when i manually allign, create mesh, colorize, texturing i have no problems,
    so i dont use F5 right now.

    Milos,
    Yes, looking forward to a more stable product. RC kills everything else with regard to speed. Only thing letting it down is its' flakiness- that is- when you set it to process a big job- don't have 100% confidence that when you come back it will have succeeded or you come back to the dreaded red error bar! Competitors seem to have more stable product- but oh so slow!!

    I found i could come up against quite often.

    but i wouldn't find out i had an issue until about 5 days in.

    I never really have found that change reconstruction region area worked for me.

    doing the recon at lower setting normally worked. but thats not really a solution when you need the high detail models.

    one thing I found that started making them work more often was setting the max distance between vertices.

    adding more ram may make the issue come up less.

    It worked for me! I changed the Reconstruction region and it worked in the end.

    After 4 years, the error still exists. My projects get stuck, too. Impossible to save the work. CR should be able to save at any time, and output any debug information, during its calculations. My guess, the software gets stuck in a infite loop.
