How to do camera animation in WebODM

Working hard to have the international headquarters of the ODM workshop ready for 2024…I am rehabilitating this noble house from the year 1720 for rural tourism uses, there is no problem in using it as the venue for an ODM workshop…the ideas for improve the point cloud in this exercise are appreciated…greetings from the north of Spain .truebo3d - YouTube …how is used the animation cam feature ?

Animation cam feature Potree visor in webODM - YouTube
but i dont know how to insert control points… this is done by the trial and error method that is the basis of recreational programming.


It is a keypoint-based camera animation. So, you place a node for the camera position and orientation, and then it will interpolate that to the next camera position/orientation.

I believe this type of keyframe-based camera work is very similar to how it is implemented in Pix4D, Blender, etc.

PoTree does not currently save/load animation keypoints in our version. We had to disable this to fix an issue with the PoTree viewer permanently breaking for a Task if the user created and deleted keypoints in a certain order.


AHHH… I beguin to do a reverse engineering and try to open webodm points cloud in Potree Desktop and continue my training…to be continued…

Hey Ricardo,

Looks good!

Those are point of interest for the camera orientations.

Thanks …I did not inform myself previously with the tutorial … but in reality the point generation system to do the camera movement cannot currently be done with the potree viewer embedded in webodm as Saijin reported, in order to put a note on the tutorial… finally I couldn’t use the files generated in the Potree viewer, the original, something escapes me about the interaction with web pages I guess. Too much code for a newbie.
