I am new to RC but have been finding it really useful for creating awesome visuals with photogrammetry. We have also been trying out laser scanning and decided to try combining the two, Laser scans for the overall model for its accuracy and photogrammetry to capture details and highlights in the scene that require a cleaner visual output.
I have three components: The laser scans themselves, and two photogrammetry components of two feature walls. The laser scan was done with a Leica RTC360 full colour imported as registered.
The two photogrammetry components are made up of ~60 images each and aligned fine. They were aligned in a different file and imported into the laser scan RC File as .rcalign files.
There are two issues that arose from this. When I reconstructed the point cloud, it generated a mesh box around the whole model even where there are no points. The interior of the cloud is fine with no weird meshing. Wondering if it is to do with the bounding box.
Secondly, when I attempted to align the three components together, it unregistered my point cloud into its original scans and exploded them, scaling them down and generally creating an extremely strange alignment.
The four circled entities are the point cloud that has been exploded out into its unregistered scans. The two flat surfaces are the wall components. I have tried re-merging components with low-medium and high image overlap sensitivity but has given me the same result. Have also tried bringing each component one at a time but still same result.
I haven't seen this issue before in tutorial videos or this forum so would really like to understand how to fix it.
Appreciate any and all help and thanks in advance!
