Merging large projects

I am running a project with 3000 images obtained from 10 separate flights.
Is my understanding correct that I need to run step 1 for each of these 10 projects first and then merge them and continue running step 2 and 3 for all of them togerther?
Or is it possible to run all 3 steps for each 2 or 3 flights separately and then merge the completed projects together if there are enough overlap and GCPs?
Thank you

Better to merge for 2 - 3 flights and then running step 1. after that merge into one project then running step 2 or 3. all of your option is possible to do

Thanks for your reply.
But I am a bit confused. You mean run step 1 for images of 2-3 flights together, then run step 2 & 3 for them as well?
Then when should I merge them with the other 8 flights? Can merging happen after step 3 also?

Hi,

The best practice would be to process Step 1 for each flight separately. The reason for that is that the camera parameters can change slightly after the drone hits the ground. Afterwards, merge the subprojects following the workflow from the image. Merging process erases Step 2 and 3. Therefore, you can start running them only at the H stage.

Thanks so much for your help Beata.
So if I understand well, I run step 1 for all 10 flights. I merge each two according to your workflow, but I do not run step 2 & 3, just merging them together and controlling that one block is created.
The same for β€œF” and β€œG” steps.
Then finally Step 2 & 3 will be run for the first time at β€œH” step only. Did I understand correctly?
