I’m wondering if I have a bad interpretation of Step 1 configuration parameters, or if this is really a bug.
To save some processing time, I always uncheck the option “Generate Orthomosaic Preview in Quality Report” in step 1 parametrs. However, monitoring the processing tasks, I still can read “Generate Quality Report (orthomosaic)” in the progress bar when Pix4D is close to conclude step1.
it seems to me that Pix4D disregards that parameter and always generates the orthomosaic for the quality report in step 1 (even if it is not actually included in the PDF). This is really annoying, as it requires considerable time to process, especially in large projects.
Is my understanding correct? Please advise. I am currently using Pix4DMapper version 4.4.12
