Process exited with code 1 - Help appreciated!

Hi All,

Running my first project with a gcp_list.txt and I’m getting the error message below, any idea if the gcp list has anything to do with it? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I’ve already restarted WebODM and ran an update check.

File “/code/opendm/”, line 139, in create_bounds_geojson
"–filters.decimation.step={} ".format(pointcloud_path, decimated_pointcloud_path, decimation_step))
File “/code/opendm/”, line 79, in run
raise Exception(“Child returned {}”.format(retcode))
Exception: Child returned 1

you probably ran out of RAM. How many images were you processing? how much RAM do you have?


Hi @ArchLenz
i’m not a specialist but the issue look like they broke down at the clipping stage.
try run task with flag --crop 0 and do not use --orthophoto-cutline


I am having a similar problem.
Granted I do have a lot of images (6327) but I know the dataset is ok as I have already processed it in another photogrammetry software (doing this as a comparison).

I get the same error “Process exited with code 1”. Originally the machine had 32gb ram which is what the dataset processed on in the other software but just in case I added a further 32gb ram and made 60gb available to docker, ran it again and got the same exit code.

Is there a hard limit on the number of images that WebODM can process?

@manand881Wasnt a RAM issue, have plenty of RAM and it was only 111 photos. Thanks for the help though. :pray:t3:

@machinefly Thanks for the advice, sorry for the late reply.

@flyzmilez Hey Mathew, are you using ground control points like I was?

Yes I am. They were generated in the new GCP editor pro.
