What gimbal angle were you using? It appears to be significantly under 90deg, but hard to tell on such small images.
I used the ‘Enhanced 3D’ mode in Dronedeploy… so perhaps it changed the gimbal angle?
I’ve found that the images that Dronedeploy does around the sides, taken at well under 90deg gimbal angles, work in DD’s processing, but are rejected in WebODM
So maybe excluding the ‘Perimeter 3D’ option may help…

It failed without pre-processing the images, but worked just fine after pre-processing them. I used the workflow described here:
Could those image enhancements be done within the drone camera settings before flying the mission instead of doing it with another program after the flight? Extra contrast and sharpening?
Very likely, but I’m not sure I’m comfortable making that a blanket recommendation since you could get yourself into trouble with that.
In my mind, it’s pretty cheap/easy to pre-process the data to make it work, but if you have bad settings when you collect, there isn’t much you can do to save that data after the fact.
Success in processing - however the image turned out skewed?
Super odd! What processing parameters did you use?
Can you attach your Report pdf?
I used your same parameters…report (1).pdf (8.4 MB)
Did you pre-process them or use GCPs?
I don’t know what would cause that distortion and shift.
Your position accuracy is so low compared to when I processed it!
Pre-processed in XnConvert using enhance and contrast… could have that program changed something else?
Shouldn’t have… It didn’t here
What Output settings did you have?
I’ve re-processed it, but this time using Chrome web browser. I accidently used Firefox for that last one. Not sure whether that was the issue or not, but it has processed fine now.
Thanks so much for your help!
Shouldn’t have mattered, but who knows! Crazy things happen, haha.
Glad you’re sorted!
Hmmm, weird, back to not processing again. Had one successful process with a good image, then a few successful but skewed image, now none successful at all. Same settings each time. I think I’ll give up on Dronedeploy and stick to Pix4dcapture. It’s a shame though because Dronedeploy produces great 3d models with their perimeter 3d option…
I’ve alwAys had great success with the perimeter mode, and recommend it for most smaller flights. Can you share more datasets for testing?
I don’t have any right now but will fly a few in the coming days…
Do you have any examples from the ones above that failed for you?
