Point Cloud (and Geotags) appears Shifted from Camera Photos

Used a P4 with Pix4DCapture in free flight mode with an LG G4 phone. The geotags appear to be shifted from the actual camera images.

Hi James,

The geotags of the images in the .p4d file are wrong. The images are orientated towards the sky or the horizon whereas it is supposed to be more downwards. The position is correct but the orientation parameters are not correctly written in the .p4d file.

Our developers are working on reformatting the .p4d file generated by the app so that it takes advantage of the camera orientation values that are now available for DJI drones. As a workaround for now, you should import the images saved on the drone’s SD card and process the project from scratch.

Thanks, that worked.
