Panorams in Trimble X7

Post by Ivan_Comrade_ »

Good afternoon, colleagues

We do scanning for fit-out projects with Trimble X7
Since these are mostly objects with many rooms, we usually use "indoor" mode and fast photo mode, without HDR. The resolution of images in Trimble Scan Explorer is 11MP. This is frankly not enough, especially since the raw data contains 158MP (if we believe the specification on the Trimble website).
How can I increase image quality, please?
Thank you for your help

The cameras are rated as 10MP so there is not much you can do. The 158Mp is the 3 cameras by 5 stops as it revolves. You can double this but each individual image is still 10MP.

You may need a better scanner like the new Trimble X12 which is technically ZF5016 with HDRI camera. Let me know if you would like to see some samples from ZF5016.

If you capture in the standard or HDR mode, don't you get more resolution in the images after the fact or is Perspective/RealWorks/TBC still compressing the images? I thought there were some settings you could adjust with image resolution, but then again, it's been a few years since I've used Perspective, so I might not be remembering it correctly.
