I’m in the trial period and comparing Pix4D with Dronedeploy.
I’ve flown a site under DD and collected 455 images. The first chunk being from the DD auto flight at 300 feet, the second chunk are manually flown from a lower height and taken every 2s to get images of the verticals.
First run through Dronedeploy made a passable render of the construction site but Pix4D is awful. When I look at the report it shows a sensor size of 11 x 8mm, from a camera in the database, yet I’m flying a P4Pv2 with a 1" sensor. Can I override the sensor size and reprocess? Could that be the problem?
I can’t post images or links as it is a commercially sensitive project, but I can say that a pickup truck looks like a pickup truck (sort-of) in DD, but in Pix4D it is just a mess of pixels, which also describes the building (sides and top).
I figured it would be challenging as it is a huge greenhouse but I’m surprised at the difference between the two packages. At least I have some report data from Pix4D, I guess.
