Recently we held a seminar that introduces how 3DF Zephyr workflow is used to create highly representative 3D models and 2D ortho mosaics of the cultural heritage around us. You can watch this below.
Naturally there are a few questions that customers may ask. We thought it would be helpful to collate these on one page for ease.
Presently just Windows is supported
Bootcamp will work but may not exploit hardware such as graphics cards
All photogrammetry software is demanding. So far, no hard metrics or comparative testing has been done. Anecdotally, some steps are slower, some faster. End result is about the same!
The errors can indicate two issues; user error when placing points or weak camera bundle (not mesh) alignment.
No limit in Zephyr. 500 camera limit in Zephyr Lite…we are lobbying hard to remove that. Please use the contact us page and let us know your thoughts
No, the Lite version does not allow scaling. However, the project can be saved and loaded in full Zephyr, and vice versa.
We are always hesitant to recommend video as a source for photogrammetry.
Yes, image quality can be estimated.
Yes, and in multiple formats. A separate application (included with Zephyr) is geared around point cloud alignment.
Recursive optimisation steps are typically not required.
A drone with a high res camera with mechanical shutter and RTK positional correction would be a good start.
The products are in our shop and yes there is academic/educational pricing too.
Local processing – not a problem. Web link optional.
Yes, the license can be moved by deregistering one pc and moving to another
3DF are based in Verona, Italy.
AccuPixel’s shop is now open for 3DFlow.
