==========
I got a problem that after flying over my town to mapping the area with DJI mavic 2 pro. After 8 hours later, my MacBook Air with M1 16g, notified not enough ram to process 1354 photos. Anyone kindly can help solve this problem? Thanks in advance.

That is nowhere near enough RAM to process 1354 images. Depending on what quality output you are looking for, 64 or 128GB could be more suitable.

As an example, a task I’m currently running with 959 M2P images, 34 hours in, with these settings -
auto-boundary: true, dem-resolution: 3, dsm: true, dtm: true, gps-accuracy: 8, mesh-size: 250000, orthophoto-resolution: 2, use-3dmesh: true
Feature quality: high, point cloud quality: medium

However, you could process the images on the Lightning node.

Gordon’s got you set :slight_smile:

In specific, you’d need the Lightning Pro or Business tiers to process more than 1,000 images at a time:
