Previously, if you wished to speed up the dense cloud creation by altering the settings for the number of pairs for the depth filtering, you had to use a rather complicated approach, and it only worked in the Pro version. Details here.
Now, reader Thomas Van Damme made me aware, Photoscan’s new versions allow editing it via the Preferences. Here’s how:
Go to the Tools menu, entry Preferences, select the Advanced tab. At the bottom you can open the Tweaks.
Click the green + sign at the top left to create a new entry, and type in
Set the value to whatever you wish to use (I use 50, but higher numbers may be a good idea if you have e.g. drone photos to process)
Click OK – and you’re done! 🙂
