How can I run projects sequentially?

I want to set up multiple projects and have them run one right after the other, is this possible? For example, I would like to set up 5 projects and run step 1 one after the other (without user intervention). Then once those are done, add in GCPs, and run step 2 and 3 for all projects one after the other (without user intervention). Instead of doing each project separately. Does pix4D mapper have a feature like this?

Hi @stephanie.flaman,

Welcome to the Pix4D Community :handshake:.

The feature that you are requesting is not available in PIX4Dmapper. However, something similar was implemented in PIX4Dmatic and is called Processing queue.

You can find additional information here:

If you want to use PIX4Dmapper, you need to process in parallel using the following procedure:

  • Open two or more instances of PIX4Dmapper by opening it again (double click on its icon on the desktop shortcut or in the start menu). Open/load a different project on every instance open. When hovering on the windows taskbar, you will see the different projects.

  • Modify the Maximum Resources Available for Processing in the Processing options > Resources and Notifications. If you are using two instances of PIX4Dmapper, select half of the resources available. If you are using three instances, select one-third of the resources. And so on. Make sure that when adding all the open instances, you are not going above 100%. You can find additional information here:

  • Start the processing on every instance

:warning: Note: This is not a standard procedure and we can’t provide additional support. Please use this way of processing only if you have a powerful enough device (RAM and CPU/GPU) and fast read-write drives (SSD, Raid 0, …). Please test to see if the device can handle such a workload.

This won’t eventually be as fast as if the processing were queued (batch processing), but it is a good alternative to take advantage of times with no operators available (nights, weekends, holidays).

Happy processing.

Thanks for the info @Daniele_Lecci!

I hope this helps.

Happy mapping
