Processing Speed

I am process over 4,000 images in Pix4dMapper.

  1. I have run process1 which took around 10hrs .
  2. Added the GCPs then reoptimized around 3hrs.
  3. I am now generating a report now and it has been running for 1hr and is still running. Screen shots attached.
    I have a very high end water cooled desktop computer see system info attached.
    My question is why dos it take so long to generate a report, it dos not seem to be using all of the CPU and memory???

Hi!

Could you please share with us also the .log file and the Quality Report of your project? If those files are too big to upload them here, please use our OneDrive. Thank you in advance!

Hi,

Looking at the Quality Report, I can only say that your GPU driver is outdated. You can download the latest version from here. It should have a positive impact on your processing. To give you more suggestions, I would need your .log file.

Hi,

Thank you very much for your data.

I analysed the .log file. I could see that you used the 3D Maps template. However, could you please let me know the outputs you’re interested in? Do you need them all; meaning the point cloud, the 3D textured mesh, ortho? I can help you adjust your processing options to your needs that will speed up the processing. Let me know!

Regards

Hi

I do need all of the outputs. I have changed my Bios settings and now running a new project with around 1,900 images. When this is completed I will send you the log file to review to see if I need to make any changes.

Writing tie points portion of the processing takes a very long time for larger projects. I’ve seen that step take 12 hours or longer for very large projects.

Not much you can do about it.

@Samuel_Van_eldik have you tried running these projects in Pix4Dmatic already? The number of images and need for speed would justify to try it out. You can download the software here: https://www.pix4d.com/download/pix4dmatic
