Cyclone REGISTER panorama exports looking like point cloud renderings

Post by benaco »

Hi,

when exporting RTC360 data to E57, the images contained within contain photo-to-laser-parallax effects like the following:

Image

Similarly, consider a hanging power cable that is cut off repeatedly mid-air:

Image

Clearly, some "project of the RGB camera onto the point cloud, and back-projection into an RGB image is going on".

Also clearly, the RTC360 did not see the RGB data like this, but saw a normal image with its multiple cameras.

Is it possible to avoid this, exporting only a cleanly-stitched panorama photo (via the cubemap images contained in the E57 export, or otherwise)?

I am aware that there will be some parallax since the RTC turns around the nodal point of the laser, and not the nodal points of its RGB cameras; but any pano stitching software like PTGui can create visually more pleasing output than what I've shown above, so I'm wondering if there's a way to get this with Cyclone Register / the Leica ecosystem.

it is not point cloud rendering those are images, but because leica overprocess the images there are lot of filters on the images which does not work well with sharp edges and of course the hdr processing also come in play....

i would like to see the original images taken from the cameras, but leica will not allow this and will not gives api for the raw data...

When you imported to the project did you go yo your settings before importing and set the import to be 5k. By default R360 only imports at 2k and this can not be simply changed after. If you want the highest quality you need set to a 5k import before bringing in the raw scans.

With Publisher Pro you are able to export really nice Pano Images with all the Raw image information. But this is not via e57 this is via P pro.

Also if you have P Pro you'll be able to write out the LGS file at 5k and then distribute the LGS as a standalone product where people can also export images from the JetStrem portable viewer application.

the publisher pro export the same images, only difference is that you can export the hdr images as well in exr format... these issues can be seen in the reg360 as well... And also in the project dat* files. the original raw images are only kept in the raw rtc360 data.

i wouldn't use 5120 images, because it is not supporte size in a texture rendering so it will just gets resized to the closest power of two which is 4096. And also it will be slower to import those.

Yes, we always instruct to do that, as Benaco allows to show the full image resolution.

Do you know if the Publisher Pro export via the context menu will be better regarding these parallax effects?

Thanks!

As i said earlier these issues can be seen in reg360. So it won't be better if you export them from the context menu. these are more likely to be image filtering issues during reg360 import.
