Mystex stage fails

Had executed below command to generate DSM from tiff file(file size > 1GB) with following command:

docker exec -it python3 /code/ --project-path /datasets project --dsm --orthophoto-resolution 2 --geo /code/geo.txt

The previous issues wrt file size & undistorted are resolved. Now the script fails while executing script “code/stages/” at line 108 with the following error:

If I’m not mistaken, I think you may have exceeded the max texture size that MVSTexturing/texrecon can handle.

Seems like this:
ODM 80MP image frames as inputs - ODM - OpenDroneMap Community

Thanks, since now I have image with higher pixel values Saijin_Naib, dalem will update define MAX_TEXTURE_SIZE (8 * 1024) in the script and share the results.


Tried updating above value but no luck. Any lead or alternative?

Hmm, not as far as I know. I think at this point we’re well past what is well-tested in this pipeline as we’ve modified a few core libraries to handle texture dimensions far beyond what they are specced for. I don’t know where it could be failing now.

Any error logs or other output you can share?

It is same error that I had mentioned above

What value did you change MAX_TEXTURE_SIZE to?

It looks like ODM v2.64 should support 24K textures in MVS_Texturing:

Had ran ODM with few values and following were outcomes:

  1. When ran ODM with 5 files with default max_texture_size it failed with an error - ran out of memory. Here 99% of texturing step got completed and it failed at last stage

  2. Next when ran ODM with 24 files with default value it failed with std::bad_alloc error

  3. When ran ODM with max_texture_size as 26460*17004(tif file dimensions) it failed with an error bad input something…

  4. When ran ODM with max_texture_size as 32768 * 32768 or 65536 * 65536 it goes in infinite loop.

  5. When ran ODM with values above 16*1024 and below 32768 * 32768 values with failed with an error “Oh no! It looks like your CPU is not supported”

  6. In some cases it failed with an error std::bad_length

To summarize for set of tif files with following properties:

  1. Size: 1.3 GB
  2. Dimensions: 26460*17002
  3. Pixels: 550MP

Texturing fails with different error at sorting stage with above reasons

Maybe try this:
MAX_TEXTURE_SIZE (439330 * 1024)

That should fit an entire image in one texture page… No idea how bad this will break, though.

It failed with an error std::bad_alloc

Alright, so it seems like we’re exceeding something in MVS_Texturing that just setting the MAX_TEXTURE_SIZE bigger doesn’t address.

Okay, it looks like we’re using UINT (Unsigned Integer), which I think is just slightly too small to allocate such gigantic texture dimensions into. I think this means we’d need to re-write mvs-texturing entirely to use another allocation (UINT64?) instead of UINT32.

I’m pretty sure you cannot process images this large with ODM (what kind of images are these? Satellite?)

Can you help with updated the script?

Trust me, you do not want me near code.

After Max_texture_size 24*1024, the script starts failing with an error std::bad_alloc…

Yep, so like I said above, I think we’d need to be re-writing the code to use another UNIT storage that is bigger than 32bit since we’re getting larger texture dimensions than it can hold. Just adjusting the script isn’t going to address that limitation.

For Max_Texture_Size in range of (8 * 1024) and (24 * 1024), the script exits when an error - ran out of memory

Yeah got it, but who will be rewriting code? Any idea, which set of script has to be updated?

Piero, possibly, and it looks like the entire program might have to be re-written to use UNIT64 instead of UNIT32. So, all of the cpp files in mvs-texturing source tree. And I have no idea if that’s possible or what that might break.
