There’s no such recommended settings, but I can share my experiences: the GoPro max is pretty low resolution, and as you indicate painful to use in a way that gives GPS.
First thing: set your
spherical. None of this works without doing that, as OpenSfM’s auto doesn’t seem to auto-detect spherical.
With the GoPro Max, I have only had success with relatively dense collections of data. You don’t indicate it here, but I know from our conversation you were bicycling. You might have to take a few passes at that speed to get a dense enough collect, or multiple Gopros sticking out at odd directions on your back.
Here is a somewhat successful collect I did manually (before firmware updates allowed for a time sequence). It has some geometric issues, as it’s too short a baseline to get good average GPS, but it’s an intriguing start:
In early 2021, I will be testing our odm360 camera ball which should allow for more control and better quality. Specs are favorably close to $15-30k units but likely to cost ~$1000 + time, which is promising.
