Pix4D tries to write files with overly complicated filenames, and fails.

I just saw this in my log:

[Warning]: Warning w9020: GDAL Error <4> Unable to create png file //xxx/xxx/pix4d/Soltau_falcon/1_initial/report/html/ILCE-7R_ZeissSonnarT*FE35mmF2.8ZA(SEL35F28Z)_35.0_7360x4912 (RGB)(1)_pixel_error.png.

Looks like you need to truncate this. Trying to write a file with a name like that means trouble. :wink:

Hi Andreas,

 

Indeed the problem here is the name of the images. Would it be possible to rename them and try again?

 

 

Thank you,

Ina

But the image “ILCE-7R_ZeissSonnarT*FE35mmF2.8ZA(SEL35F28Z)_35.0_7360x4912 (RGB)(1)_pixel_error.png” is created by pix4d itself, isn’t it? I don’t think that I have any influence on this.

Hi Andreas,

I am sorry for coming back so late.

Indeed you are right it is the mapper does create this. Could you share the log file and the p4d file with me so I could take a look?

Thanks,

Ina
