    Hi,

    Based on the screenshots, your shooting technique is not the best. You are basically shooting panoramas which is not optimal for photogrammetry. I advise you to follow the advice from the support team. 

    You should create an envelope of cameras around the scanned object to get the best results. Something like this:

    350 images all aligned on default settings in a single component. I guarantee you if you change your technique, you'll get better results.

    Did you even read my post ?

    Obviously I did these tests only to see if the messed up result would be on both camera, not to do a perfect scan. And of course it worked, 407 pics on 408 (99.75%) of pics aligned

    The following model is with my method and the result is good considering it's only on preview reconstruction and colorized, not textured.

    I'll turn to a professional photographer so I can finally solve my issue with the problematic camera.

     

    Thank you for your time.

    Yes, of course. I just tried to give you a general tip, so you don't waste time in the future. 

    To elaborate, I know from experience that shooting with the panorama style causes misalignments and visible errors in the model or noisy surfaces.

    For this specific case, I think that fewer images caused the multiple components. It can take only one missing photo that breaks the connection. I believe it is this simple and there is no problem with the camera.  Every time something went wrong for me, it was the photos. Either the distribution of the images or their quality.

    I am sorry, but I don't have any more advice for you. Good luck with the project. Maybe someone else can give you better advice.

    I understand you try to help but as I said in the first post here, it's sad you only approach the issue this way.

    This is not the first time I get this kind of answer, feels like you guys don't really consider the description of our experience.

    I already said one of your collegue blamed the process to cause this and you do the exact same thing right after my post. This is why I will not ask support for help anymore I guess unless it's a question about software itself.

    And I'm not upset while I write this, I just wanted to tell you so maybe you (team) could improve to help better in the future.

    Ps : 95% of my models turned great until I change my camera, from then 80 to 90% is complete waste. I didn't change my way of taking pics or forgot how to do photography. That's what I would have like you to consider, both here and by e-mail.

     

    Have a nice day.

    Hi The-Runaway,

    we are sorry, that you feel it like this.

    If it is possible, can you send us your datasets?

    Also, can you please taking images using Jakub's way with both cameras of something simple if this problem will repeat? And send us also this second dataset? 

    We will test them and send them to our developer team to analyze, if there is some kind of problem with that camera.

    Again, sorry for the inconveniences.

    Hi Ondrej,

     

    thank you for your message and sorry for the late answer, as I was too busy last days to process new test dataset.

     

    I will try again with a simple object and send you the data asap.

     

    Have a good day.
