  • Improved one-click model generation
  • Mosaicing-based texturing and UV unwrap (Experimental)
  • Direct upload to Nira
  • Axis and transformation adjustment on import model dialog
  • Updated resource cache behavior

Selected New Features:

  • Support for PLY model import
  • HEIC decoder metadata added
  • Added render mesh from custom position -  CLI commands + reporting system functions
  • Added large triangle unwrap option to the level of detail export
  • Revision of Inspection tool
  • Updated sign-in window

New CLI Commands:

  • renderMeshFromCustomPositionLookAt

Selected fixes:

Alignment:

  • Fixed the component workflow when "Features source" is set to "Merge using overlaps"
  • Fixed a crash when opening older .rcalign components from the old RealityCapture versions
  • Fixed an issue when GPS positions from image exif were not imported

Meshing:

  • Fixed "Unknown error" in meshing occurring in rare cases
  • Fixed possible crashes in model calculation when the application is low on memory

Texturing:

  • Fixed "The group or resource is not in the correct state" error

Editor:

  • Fixed an issue when the export dialog was not showing because the Nikon RAW codec was installed on the computer
  • Fixed an issue when negative numbers in CLI were dropping RealityCapture from silent and headless modes
  • The "Application Restarted" error should no longer happen
  • Fixed an issue with occasional missing parts in exported depths and masks
  • Fixed an issue when loading some RealityCapture projects with ortho projection shapes crashed RealityCapture
  • Fixed an issue when it was not possible to do a Sketchfab upload if you have an 8K texture
  • Fixed a crash when calculating on ortho projection of Map (GPS) type using the epsg:5514 coordinate system
  • HEIC decoder is not crashing anymore when it fails to load the image
  • The CLI command -exportModel  without optional parameter now uses the latest GUI settings

Minor fixes:

  • Fixed an issue when texture artifacts are visible in 3D and 2D views when using HDR images
  • Fixed an issue when imported components might have a different visual scale (fixed only with newly exported components)
  • Fixed an issue when the pivot placement on multipart meshes was in the air
  • Fixed an issue when texture projection was failing to hit certain triangles
  • Fixed an issue with missing triangles in Cesium tile corners
  • Fixed an issue when CameraMeasureStats function in CameraErrorsExportFS was not working
  • Fixed an issue when ExportTextureInfo in ModelExportFunctionSet did nothing for non-textured models
  • Fixed command line errors: in some cases, an error related to a previous wrong request was shown instead of the current one

 

RealityCapture 1.3.1

Selected fixes:

Alignment:

  • Fixed black borders in the inner region undistorted image export
  • Fixed image priors not being saved in a project when using the "addImageWithCalibration" CLI command
  • Fixed the "lockposeforcontinue" command not working in CLI

Meshing:

  • Fixed CUDA error for using older GPUs (added automatic fallback from v2 to v1 depth map library)
  • Fixed meshing error for alignment with division distortion model

Texturing:

  • Fixed issue where images disabled for texturing were used in texturing

Editor:

  • Fixed slow loading times of projects with large images (images over 100 Mpx)
  • Fixed smoothing suboptimal threading strategy (increased smoothing tool processing speed)
  • Fixed empty pixel format in export image settings
  • Fixed exported FBX and ABC wrong camera naming, transforms, and sensor size
  • Fixed operation failed error when pressing cancel from the export dialog window
  • Fixed an issue with the AI Classify Tool, where transfer labels from images assigns ignored class to unclassified vertices
  • Fixed wrong camera positions in some cases in Nira
  • Fixed an issue where only a selection of cameras were uploaded to Nira
  • Fixed script error in Help on pages with embedded videos
  • Fixed script error when exporting reports in the German language

RealityCapture 1.3.2

Selected fixes:

  • Fixed the “Texturing stage 01 sanity check error”
  • Fixed the issue with the  “Keep intrinsics” setting for undistorted images not preserving the calculated parameters in the exported cameras
  • Fixed a possible error during color correction
  • Fixed an issue where the “Unwrap parameters” in the Simplify tool didn’t work
  • Fixed an issue where a message didn’t show up when moving the cache files from one custom location to another
  • Fixed the “End of physical tape” error message for the Open Colmap Text Format option 
  • Fixed a Nira upload issue where files divisible by 20MB would fail
  • Fixed issue with Nira upload not recognizing CH1903 / LV03 (EPSG: 21781) coordinate system and reporting it as UTM
  • Added “Use UTM” check box to Nira upload to force UTM coordinate system based on the coordinates in the image EXIF
  • Fixed an error when importing a model with classification and now it won't return an error, but it will import the model without the classification
  • Removed cloud reports from the Share menu
  • Minor text updates in multiple dialogs
