Create only the dense point cloud


#1

apologies if I’ve missed obvious documentation - can I get ODM to stop after creating a dense point cloud (which is all I’m after for now)?

Looking at the docs, I don’t see a way to say ‘stop at stage Y’ - does ODM assume we always want to create a mesh and ultimately an orthophoto?

thanks!

I add –end-with ‘smvs’ to the list of arguments that I pass to ./run.sh

It stops after creating dense point cloud in smvs folder.

You can check with other parameters here :

(…needs some update after current release)

Thanks! I totally missed the ‘—end-with’ option, right near the top… :man_facepalming:
