I flew a structure with a Phantom 4 RTK and have accurate xyz positions for all my images. I've turned up the weight of the prior pose in the alignment settings to 100 and most of the images align great with only slight shifts away from their RTK coordinates. However, I keep getting groups of images that are pulled far off their prior pose, which is creating a big misalignment. In the screenshot, the red arrows point to the same feature which has been duplicated by the images with the large orange error lines, which I'm trying to fix. The images without the long lines look great.
I can see why this is happening in this case, because there are alot of similar looking patterns in these images. In other components though, the entire model is scaled or rotated. I know the prior pose is correct and accurate to 4cm yet the misalignment is often 100m+.
Is there any way to force the images to be within x distance of their prior pose or to prevent them from aligning to something that isn't near this RTK positon?
