I’ve been wanting to improve the trimming of orthophotos on a project and decided to see if the cutline option opened more opportunity for custom trimming like some of the alternative processing engines. I have a dataset of 154 jpg images that process to completion in a reasonable time on Lightning as well as my local webodm node using the Hi Res template with no other options selected. But when I run that same data set wiht the Hi Res template + cutline option flipped to True, Lightning errors out with an error 1 notification at a little under 3 hours. Running that same HiRes + cutline task on my local machine just keeps churning. I finally cut it off at 35 hours on a 8-core 64G RAM machine.
I’m sure that I must be asking the processing engine to do something dumb, so I’m checking in here to learn more. Both the data set and the error message are available on Dropbox here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/peu3rf7c2slnrdw/AACei97-LKfdwdNePWFekYk-a?dl=0
For my original photo trimming, I"ve been able to do that in Photoshop, so it’s not an urgent issue for me to do it in WebODM. But I want to learn what that cutline option is supposed to do and how I should be using it.
Thanks… Bob R.
