Import camera position & orientation from metashape?

Hi all,

I have better luck getting my rededge cameras registered in metashape than i do in pix4d.  But I’d like to stick with the pix4d pipeline.  Has anyone been able to export camera position & orientation information from Metashape and import them into their Pix4D project?  It seems that metashape has a plethora of file format options for camera export…



Hi Alexander, 

What you would need in Pix4Dmapper is to have a .txt file with X, Y, Z and omega, phi, kappa parameters.

As I don’t know the Metashape file formats by heart, maybe you can extract somehow this information and include into Pix4Dmapper in Image Properties Editor.

Let us know if you need our further assistance.
