I'm having trouble with Reality Capture and my turntable setup. When having only one loop of photographs, the software works reasonably fine and outputs only one component. However, things get tough whenever I try to take different loops for different heights. There, RC splits the alignment into multiple components.
First of all, I'm trying to avoid having to merge components manually through control points, as I would like most of the pipe to be automatic, even headless. From there, I tried many things:
- I did try to align manually, and it took really a lot of time, without success in the end. I couldn't merge the components.
- I tried working with masks, generated with another software
- I tried isolating one particular loop that would cause issues, but all of them seem to create problems when processed separately.
So now I'm questionning my setup itself. I've read that it is possible to process turntable setups with RC. However, I suspect my turntable setup is wrong, particularly with the background. Maybe the way I'm taking pictures (rotation angle etc) is not the best either.But as RC didn't work even with masking the background, I'm really at a loss to understand what more could be wrong. Especially, the same dataset works perfectly well in Metashape, with one swoop alignment.
Anyway, I'm hereby providing my dataset https://we.tl/t-IinbWx1TAk . Can you tell me what is wrong with it, and what I should do so that RC processes the object within only one component?
Many thanks and sorry if I missed the answer somewhere on the forum.
