Scene Autosave

Post by nikitshetti » Wed Jun 05, 2019 8:51 pm

Hi,

Whenever scene crashes it generally creates a autosave file but if the point cloud has not been created before that then there is no data at all. Like I can see the scan file names in the structure but there is no data in it. Even in the 3D view I can see the scanner position as well. If I re-import the same scans then I get an error message "scan name with the same name already exists". Has anyone experienced this issue before ? It would be really helpful to know the fix. Thank you.

Best,
Nikit Shetti

This is a last resort fix

Look in your revisions folders

Find the last latest revision with actual files in the scans folder

You may have to go back multiple revisions to find all the scans

Copy those scans into the scans folder under the revision you are trying to recover

You are just trying to find the version of each scan file you touched last and copy it into the latest revision’s scan folder

You lose whatever changes you made in the last revision but it has worked for me recovering a project that I tried to save to a full disk

Good luck

You can also try to go in the Process tab and re-process the project. Sometimes, this issue happens from the Scan Point Clouds becoming corrupt if SCENE is force-closed during a save.

Try right clicking on the missing cluster, or the individual missing scans, in the structure window, select 'Load All Scans' or 'Loaded' which should reload the original scan data and then re-run the cloud creation procedure. A good practice is to regularly save your project after every operation (loading scans, creating point clouds, etc.) and then disregard the autosaves. Using saves created halfway through a corrupt procedure increases the likelihood of actually corrupting your data and if you save after each operation you shouldn't ever lose much time in re-running the last process. Saving your projects in Scene also clears cached temp data from any unsaved operations, freeing up memory and often improving processing performance.

"Saving After Major Tasks

Information related to certain major tasks is held in the system memory until the project is saved.
Saving after the following tasks will help keep memory free for system use:
Create/Delete Scan Point Clouds
Unsaved modifications to multiple scans (i.e. cropping, filtering, or applying color)
Updating target-less registration

Certain tasks do not require more frequent saves such as:
Creating objects manually (i.e. checkerboards, spheres, planes, points, or viewpoints)
Updating target-based registration"
