No such file or directory?

I am running OpenDroneMap on Ubuntu 16.04 (on a machine with 32 GB RAM) after no luck using a Macbook Air. Running into the following issue:

Generating texture views: 
NVM: Loading file...
NVM: Number of views: 75
NVM: Number of features: 0
        Loading 0%...terminate called after throwing an instance of 'util::FileException'

Exception: Child returned 134

I tried adding the setting --use-opensfm-pointcloud in accordance with It didn’t seem to work:

$ sudo docker run -it --rm -v $(pwd)/images:/code/images -v $(pwd)/odm_orthophoto:/code/odm_orthophoto -v $(pwd)/odm_texturing:/code/odm_texturing opendronemap/opendronemap --use-opensfm-pointcloud

Hey @OrangOrangUtan, could you copy paste the entire output from the console? Perhaps something went wrong with an earlier stage of the process.

I encountered the same problem, but in the windows , how to solve this trouble?

How are you installing opendronemap? Can you post the contents of your texturing directory?

I’m having this exact problem and currently am troubleshooting. I am running ODM through docker on ubuntu

The problem here, as I finally discovered, is that I my image filenames had characters that caused the process to fail.

The filenames were batch2 (2).jpg, batch (3).jpg, batch (4).jpg, etc. This is a result of taking over 1000 images with a DJI drone where the naming starts over at 1000 and images are stored in separate folders during flight. I was forced to batch change the filenames so that they could all be in the same folder. Windows always adds a parenthesis and a space which caused the failure. When I used those filenames in Ubuntu the process failed.
