We are glad to introduce our latest RealityCapture version 1.1 Blaze
IMPORTANT NOTE: Projects created and/or saved in this version cannot be opened in the previous versions of RealityCapture.
From now on RealityCapture takes into account different accuracies of individual camera position, camera orientation and other parameters from PPK/RTK flight logs. In addition, users can easily customize the importer by editing a simple xml file to read flight logs from their own PPK/RTK UAV.
This will dramatically reduce the users work directly in the field and post-processing time in RealityCapture. PPK data will greatly increase speed while reducing an amount of needed GCPs required for one dataset while preserving the accuracy. Users can also generate reports where they can quickly review accuracies of an alignment, camera positions and so on.
Further, with the new powerful AI classify tool RealityCapture can distinguish bare ground from other objects and generate digital terrain models. In addition to the automatic AI classify users have the option to edit the classification by assigning the classes manually.
With the new LOD export and Upload to Cesium ion users can work seamlessly on large datasets and share a work directly to the clients through URL link.
For those who are using laser scanner, RealityCapture now support direct import of Z+F laser scans without the need to convert it into .e57 or ptx. This significantly reduces both, time and HW consumption.
Moreover, RealityCapture now also support direct import of Leica BLK3D image group files. Leica BLK3D is a simple handheld device with a size of a smartphone with two 10 Mpx cameras. These two cameras are synchronously capturing images; hence you are basically capturing 20 Mpx images. Since it is capturing images sequentially the file needs to be imported into RealityCapture as video. The great benefit is that as the distance between these two cameras is known, RealityCapture uses this information and automatically scales your scene.
Due to the improvements in the text files importer there is a need to generate the parametric files in the latest version when importing flight log, control points measurements and ground control points via CLI. Specifically, this concerns using commands importFlightLog, importControlPointsMeasurements, and importGroundControlPoints.
