    Hello,
    the depth maps should be getting some improvements in the new release soon. I suggest you to wait and see how they work afterwards. Meanwhile, sorry for such inconvenience.

    Can you tell me in the meantime how to read this depth information? Or is it corrupted? I need it very soon. Thanks.

    I can't tell you how to read in the OpenCV as that is not in my knowledge dear James. Normally a compositing software would be reading it via it's nodes/system.

    As I said, none of the software that normally opens OpenEXR files seems to be able to read the .exr files that come from RealityCapture. Including Preview and Gimp. Which is why I suspect they are somehow not standard.

    Well, as I said there should be changes to depth maps such in the new release. I would rather wait for it. We did have some issues with these.

    This still seems to be an issue as far as I can tell.

    hi Erik, 

    I was hopeful that the new release would fix the exr file issue but it doesn't appear to be the case.  Note I'm using Version 1.1.1.15122 RC.  I've tried gimp, irfanview and an online converter to open the EXR.

    See images for failure messages.  Any tips on how to access the information in the EXR (depthmap) file? Am I doing something wrong? 

    edit: I exported an Ortho Projection as an EXR and was able to open that in gimp.  But I'm after the depthmap from each image.

    • Now possible to export ortho-projections into .exr file format.
