Hello I am using Capturing Reality to work on Surveying projects and I am becoming unstuck.The people I am working for usually use GPS pole surveys and they give the data to the client the next day.
The problem I am having is the flights are quicker but the processing time is taking around 4 Hours but then if anything goes wrong and I have to run it then my next day has gone.
I need to make the Point cloud really for exporting it to another software and I do use the 3d Render to create a backcloth for when I am working on my Volume data.
I have 32gb Ram
Intel I7 8700 3.2 Ghz
Nvidia Geforce 1070 TI 8 Gb GPU Ram
Samsung Evo Pro 1tb M.2 Disk with capturing reality installed on this.
I have changed my settings to preview mode and although it was much quicker it then had so many holes in my data I had to spend twice as long in my other software filling them in with new triangles to give me the correct Volumes from the Stock piles that I am measuring.
I'm not really sure what settings I can change to take the Preview quality better (an in-between preview and Normal) I normally use Normal quality and it is certainly good enough for me. but still a decent quality to not have holes in the created image.
I have tried to export the Point cloud and in Capturing reality it shows colours but then I export it to a .xyz file to the Apps In Cadd N4ce software and then it doesn't take the colours in.
The Images I am using are from a DJI Phantom 4 Pro using the Pix4d capture app to take the images.
I then bring the images in and then use my Ground Control Points for the actual GPS data and ignore in Capturing Reality.
the Image alignment is really quick so if I could get the point cloud out with colours that would be brilliant. But if I then have to go through the full processing that's great but If I could get better than preview but less then Normal that I guess would save on time there for the processing.
It then takes me another 3-4 hours work in the next software so late nights after a flight and processing leaves me up all night to get the data to the client the next day before 7am.
Any help would be so appreciated.
