I'm completely stumped by this. I shot what I thought was a good set of about 140 photos of a flat stone wall. This is what it looks like in real life:
I aligned them in RC but had some severe issues. I realised it was likely due to some far away angled photos I took, so I removed them and started alignment again from scratch. This made the result look a lot better, so I proceeded with high quality mesh reconstruction.
Now I'm looking at the finished model and it looks horrible! Here are some examples of the bizarre artifacts I'm getting:
Here's a quick summary of the photos I took. They look pretty normal, right?
Is there anything wrong with the capturing process? All of the images are sharply in focus, shot at about 43mm with a Sony Alpha A7R II (42MP), ISO 500 with a shutter speed of 1/250.
I'm so frustrated. Anyone know what could be going on?
EDIT 1: just finished another mesh. The same thing is happening on this tree bark:
Here's a further away shot to show that the area affect appears to be the result of taking photos from further away. Could that be the culprit?
Here's a sort of "part 2" to my problem (see the other thread for more info). I realised what seems to be giving me these jutting out sections on my model is RC placing some of my cameras in completely wrong positions. See the following screenshots:
Why is it that two photos that were taken at basically the exact same distance from the object are aligned at such extremely different positions? No wonder my model is getting destroyed!
Can anyone help?
