360 photo

When processing 360 photos from cameras such as Ricoh Theta S, will there be problems in Pix4D since the human operator will be captured in every photo as he/she holds the camera while walking around to take photos?

Hi Raymond, 

We would recommend to minimize the presence of the human operator in the images as much as possible. 

However, even if the operator is visible in some images, he/she should not be reconstructed in the model.

As the operator will not be positioned in the same place in every image, the keypoints on the operator will not be matched between images, which will most likely result in the operator simply being ignored by the software during the reconstruction.

Many thanks for the reply. Avoiding the operator will mean a lot of ‘hiding’ and slowing down large area captures. Will try to see if the operator can really be ignored by the software.
