I'm trying to model my backyard using laser scanning. I have obtained an ordered E57 laser scan of the yard, which is comprised of 40 total scans. I am yet unable to register any of the scans in RC.
I tried following the advice on this pagehttps://support.capturingreality.com/hc/en-us/articles/360020653080-How-to-import-any-scan-data-to-RealityCapture-using-CloudCompare-and-Faro-Scene-How-to-create-ordered-point-cloud-from-unordered-
When looking at the point cloud in other programs it is apparent that there are some weird stray points causing the scan to have dimensions past 1000 m. I trimed all the stray points in CC and Recap leaving me with dimensions <400 m. I then put the two point clouds into FARO Scene, and created virtual scan locations. I imported the virtual scan locations as an ordered E57 into RC, but either the scans will not register or I recieve an error message specifing, 'operation failed.' Of note, I have not been able to successfully register the scans in Recap nor FARO Scene to create one cohessive cloud; I suspect that this has to do with how complex the scans are.
