Can only reconstruct in preview mode - urgent issue.

    Hi kieron,

    similar things have been happening seemingly more and more often lately.

    To find the exact error is not always easy as it must be a malfunction of some kind. The reason why preview works is that with standard settings RC uses the sparse pointcloud to generate the mesh. That's also the reason why it's so fast - it doesn't need to calculate any depth maps.

    What I learned from similar cases is that the quickest way to see if something is wrong with the project file or some part of it is to open an entirely fresh one and start from scratch. If you keep the cache, it shouldn't take long. If it doesn't help, then you can try again with deleting the cache beforehand.

    Hi

    thanks for the reply, just to say yes this worked. Completely new scene and then I could reconstruct at normal detail. Hopefully the error reporting could suggest that at least so people dont waste their time with the current scene.

    Hi kieron,

    thanks a lot for reporting back!

    This is a theory that I've just come up with a few days ago under the shower, so it's still new.

    It's nice to hear that it helped and this post might just rescue a few people with the same problem...  :-)

    For me this error happened when i had updated the scale of my model, but the reconstruction region was still very tiny.

    Once I rescaled the reconstruction area, it worked again.

    Interesting, so it might be tied to the reconstruction region.

    That would be much more convenient than starting fresh.

    Thanks for sharing!
