PIX4Dcloud's powerful and improved new 3D maps pipeline
Exciting news for all PIX4Dcloud users! PIX4Dcloud, our cloud-based photogrammetry platform, has recently upgraded the 3D maps processing pipeline. Let's delve into what this means for your projects and how these advancements can improve your workflow.
What to expect from the new 3D maps pipeline
Faster and more powerfulThe new engine significantly reduces processing time and handles bigger projects effortlessly.
Improved mesh construction and texture qualityEnhanced mesh construction and texture quality, especially noticeable in urban areas and flat, low-texture zones.
More detailed point cloudsChallenging areas like façades, cables, and signage are now rendered with more detailed point clouds, offering richer and more accurate representations.
Support for vertical coordinate systems and geoid modelsexpanding compatibility and accuracy in georeferenced data processing.
Optimized for nadir flightsFor the best results with nadir imagery, the new pipeline is your go-to option. For oblique imagery consider using 3D models pipeline and for low-texture areas like vegetation consider using 3D maps with the legacy pipeline or 2D orthomosaic instead.
Compatibility with PIX4Dmapper: while the new pipeline brings numerous advantages, it's important to note that downloading and opening projects in PIX4Dmapper is not supported with this update. If this is a requirement, you can revert to the legacy pipeline by checking the "PIX4Dmapper compatibility" box.
Updated quality reports: The quality report for projects processed in the new pipeline differs from the legacy pipeline's quality report, providing a distinct format and metrics tailored to the new system.
AutoGCP reports: please note that the AutoGCP report will not be available with projects processed using the new pipeline.
