Hi everyone,

It's been a while since we released some new “bigger” tools due to our preparation for GDC, but we will start releasing what we have been working on leading up to GDC itself. Enjoy!

If you have any questions or feedback on the plugin, feel free to ask them here!

Hi, I keep getting this error at the end. I´ve tried everything that is recommended in the page, made sure no white spaces in the folder, added the path to the .env, even linked the path at the sop node. Also tried hooking up the first three nodes, but no geomerty is generated. What else can I try to make it work?

Hi,

Sorry to hear you're having some issues! Does this happen with the provided set of example images from the tutorial page, or with images you took yourself? If they are your own, could you try running the ones we provide through the tool? That allows us to confirm the tool works, and narrow it down to something more specific. (make sure you use a unique project name)

Hi,

This is due to the plugin not being compatible with version 2.1.0 of AliceVision yet. Please try using 2.0.0 instead and you should not be getting that error.

Hi. The apple example does work. Is there a minimum requirement for the photos to use?

Hi, I fiddled around some time now and finally found the solution for the above error message (after having edited the exif-data, the resolution, the camera db values..)
But as my own example files worked fine I found out that -somehow- only for the canon (as of yet) the database entry is wrong. Photos taken with my HTC Ultra work perfectly.

So, for the solution, in the AliceVision-2.0.0\share directory there is a ‘camerSensors.db’ file.
Find the line where the camera (for the apple example it's the Canon EOS Rebel T6i) and simply delete everything in this line after the sensor value.

Like this:
Canon;Canon EOS Rebel T6i;22.3

So easy

Save and enjoy

Could you email your log files (found in the cache folders) to support? I will then take a look at it for you!

Could you check what the last successful step the tool was able to complete is? The log data would help troubleshoot your issues!
