Orthophoto without DSM

After step 1 is it always necessary to always do step 2 even if I only need the orthophoto (step 3)?

Yes, the DSM is used to orthorectify the mosaic. I too wished for this however it became trivial to my workflow in the long run. Are you concerned with processing constraints / time? How many images are your projects?

Hi @aghirardi1 ,

It is not recommended to skip step 2.
Technically, it is possible to process step 3. DSM, Orthomosaic and Index without processing step 2. Point Cloud and Mesh but it is not recommended as lower quality DSM and orthomosaic will be generated.
For more info: Is it possible to obtain the DSM and / or Orthomosaic without processing Step 2. Point Cloud and Mesh?
