Images cannot be imported¶
The import module from AliceVision has problems parsing corrupted image files. Some mobile phone cameras and action cams/small cameras like the CGO3+ from Yuneec produce images which are not valid. Most image viewers and editing software can handle minor inconsistencies.
e.g. “…extraneous bytes before marker 0xdb”.
or “Truncated File - Missing EOI marker” on a raspberry camera
To fix this problem, you need to bulk convert your dataset (this is why
downscaling worked too). You can use IrfranView
File->Batch Conversion or Imagemagick. Make sure you set the quality
to 100%. Now you can add the images to Meshroom (assuming the camera is
in the sensor db).
drag and drop of images does not work (#149) mouse over the with any photos the cursor is disabled and dropping photos into the viewport has no effect. Do you run Meshroom as admin? If yes, that’s the cause. Windows disables drag and drop on applications being run as admin.
Note: avoid special characters/non-ASCII characters in Meshroom and images file paths (#209)
