Creating 3D Reconstructions
Read our article How to create 3D reconstructions for more detailed instructions for creating models in DroneDeploy, Pix4D, RealityCapture and Bentley Context Capture.
After offloading your files to a desktop or laptop, upload your JPGs to your preferred photogrammetry software.
[note] Some photogrammetry platforms allow the use of thermal images to create reconstructions. Note that if you changed color palettes mid-scan, this may negatively affect the quality of your reconstruction. [/note]
3D Scan files
When transferring your data, you will see two folders:
DCIM - Digital Camera Images
Contains a subfolder titled 100SKYDO which houses low-resolution video files (.LRV) of your scan. You will not need these files to create 3D reconstructions.
Contains individual scans titled by scan name followed by a UTC timestamp.
