I am not exactly sure if this is a bug or if it is something that I am doing wrong. But here it goes:
I am trying to align a batch of scans photographed in a full face rig of 96 cameras. I want to match all the scans so that they are all in the same scale, world position and orientation. First I scan a known object like box wrapped in newspaper with known dimensions. Then I do a bunch of face scans.
In RC first I import the first scan with known orientation and scale. I assign ground control points to known positions and do the alignment. My alignment comes out as expected with correct scale and orientation. Then I export Metadata of my aligned images as XMP files with "camera poses" = "draft" and everything else as "True". (I use draft since my rig is not very stable and it moves a bit over time.)
After the export I copy the XMP files to the next scan folder(photo naming is the same for all scans). I open up a new project, load the images set the "prior pose-
relative pose" = "Draft" and "absolute pose" = "position and orientation" and run the alignment. The result comes out as expected again with correct scale and orientation.
The problem is this: If I some how erase the contents of the RC temp folder the second alignment comes out completely off.
My plan was to use 2 CLI licensed workstations to generate more then 300 scans over a short period of time. I intend to copy XMP files and run the alignment. Does this mean I would need to syncronize the RC temp files across each machine or maybe use a share network path for RC temp folder?
