Hello,

I am trying to get the images embeded in an E57 out of Recap.
Did anyone find a way to do this?
If you open an E57 exported from Recap inside CloudCompare, no image is found either.

(to export pictures in an E57 from Cyclone, you have to export it at th Scanworld level, and not from the modelspace view)

Thanks!

You need to have ReCap Pro.
Then when exporting to e57 there is a question if you'd like to export the complete point cloud without changes, or with the changes.
In your case you want to export without changes (I think it is the right button in the ReCap Export window).

Then ReCap creates an E57 with images.

If you don't have ReCap Pro and it is only for this one project You could download the PointCab eval version, import the rcp point cloud and use the point cloud export with the option separate scans, then you'll get one e57 file for each scan position.
If there are coming a lot of rcp point cloud projects, I'd recommend to get ReCap Pro.

Hi,
Thanks for your reply.
That's what I am doing. I have Recap Pro, and when I export my point cloud I choose "complete: includes per-scan info (no edits)".
But this E57 file does not include the images. The points are coloured but the images are not included in the file. I guess Recap is just not capable of doing it.
