Hi, I am not able to get my images read by Matic. I know it is an unsupported camera but all the metadata should be there as it works in Mapper with no issue. Is it possible to have a look and let me know what if you see what the problem is?
Hi @amarshall, I tried to check your image with an EXIF/XMP reader, but it says there is no XMP data. Maybe it’s because of the upload to the community which might have altered the tags. Would it be possible to share a link with one of the original images?
The requirements to be compatible in PIX4Dmapper and PIX4Dmatic are slightly different, you can find the details for the EXIF and XMP tags required for both software in this support article: https://support.pix4d.com/hc/en-us/articles/205732309-EXIF-and-XMP-tag-information-read-by-Pix4D
The issue I most often encountered so far is that the camera does not support the “orientation” information in the XMP data. If you share another image I’ll be able to tell you in more detail.
Hi Pierangelo, Thank you for the every quick response. I did the same with an online EXIF reader and I get the following information;

Do you have an example of how the tags should look? Are you able to provide an image/file with the minimum required tags in the correct format that I would be able to use as a template to format my data correctly?
The tags are described in detail in the article I shared in my previous reply, there is a pdf in the article that contains all details, e.g. how a tag should be written, if it is optional, recommended or mandatory: https://support.pix4d.com/hc/en-us/articles/205732309-EXIF-and-XMP-tag-information-read-by-Pix4D
I requested access to your folder, I’ll have a look there too.
Btw what is the camera you are using?
