New to the software and docker. I have had some success on small projects (around 100 images) and ideally would like to attempt a larger project and compare the results from the major players (Pix4D, Drone Deploy) and WebODM. I’ve attempted to process a 450 image project of a construction site but while my computer easily processed the project in the Commercial packages I couldn’t get it to complete in WebODM.
The first attempt stopped early and it appeared to be a memory issue (16GB RAM) so I had it resize the images (not sure how that affects the process or results but I thought I’d try it). It ran almost to completion but stopped cold at the very end when creating the laz file. I suspect it was also a memory issue (based on my rudimentary skills with task manager) which brings me to my questions.
Is there a way to move processing into something like google cloud or another place where my machine is not the problem? Am I dreaming to think that my machine with 16GB of RAM will ever handle this using webODM? Do I have any alternatives other than giving up or buying new hardware in order to use this software?
I really hope there a fixes for this. I hate the idea of paying the big money to enjoy what is currently a hobby at this point.
