Build51 problems

Almost every dataset I try to process with Build 51 fails, often with a similar error.
Knowing basically nothing of programming (forgotten what little I did know a few decades ago!), I’ve been looking through the console log to see if I could figure it out. Saijin_Naib’s suggestion of a race condition was along the lines of what I had been thinking, but so far solutions have not been found.

Having a 3rd go at a set of 1320 images today I noticed this in the console log

FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘E:\WebODM51\resources\app\apps\NodeODM\data\aa8db589-4604-4e2f-afad-6a228ee667a7\opensfm\features\DJI_0828.JPG.features.npz’

DJI_0828.JPG is one of the images in the set, but there appears to be a gap in
\reports\features - files DJI_0800 - 0834.JPG.json are absent

Also in \opensfm\features files DJI_0801 - 0834.features.npz are absent (one less missing file)

They are listed in \opensfm\exif

They are listed in \opensfm\image_list.txt

Hopefully this is useful information that will help solve the problem!


Piero and I are just discussing this, but it looks like maybe a pipe size limitation that sometimes Python can hit:

As far as I know, this isn’t confirmed, but this seems to be the direction Piero is researching currently.


Tried again, but another fail with quite a few missing image .npz and .json files.

Trying again with no resizing and Ultra quality so that GPU isn’t used for feature extraction, hopefully it’s a way around this problem. It will take a lot longer, but otherwise I guess it means going back to build 47 to get tasks to complete.

It seems that build 51 just wont process this subset of 1320 images, GPU fails as posted above. Going full size ultra to use the CPU for feature extraction appeared to be going well, until it crashed after nearly 84 hours. End of the console below, but this appears to be the problem:

No proper input scene descriptor given.

[ERROR] Uh oh! Processing stopped because of strange values in the reconstruction. This is often a sign that the input data has some issues or the software cannot deal with it. Have you followed best practices for data acquisition? See Flying Tips — OpenDroneMap 2.7.1 documentation
