WebODM Lightning - max count of pic

Hi Guys,

i would like render a big amount of file - i have about 7500pics.
My computer have only 32GB of ram so it’s to poor to handel it.
I bought credits on WebODM.net Lighting but now i see they can take only 3k pics.

has someone idea how to deal with that big dataset?

ps. i know i can split it for smaller group but i need a big set of orthophoto and dsm tiles

@pierotofy runs that service. Message him there to find out if he can lift the ceiling for you.

I have the same problem, running 1093 images but WebODM Lightning just hit its max count

Check your account on Drone & UAV Mapping Software | WebODM and make sure you have sufficient credits (or a monthly plan).


Along those lines, make sure that your service plan matches your intended job size:

You can not exceed 1,000 images per task on the Pay-As-You-Go tier, as per the Pricing page:

For > 1500 pictures you need the Business plan if you’re using Lightning.

OK but in that case, what are the credits for?
im just trying to understand, because i pay 57 for the program, then like 30 dollars for the credits, and now i have to pay 120 aprox for the business plan, is there a way to use the credits as a part of the payment for the business plan, or it works with the credits, for example i have to subscribe to business plan and then buy the credits for the process??

For “pay as you go” processing (which is up to 1,000 images per task). You can use those to process datasets < 1000 images.

Get in touch with Contact | WebODM if you need a refund on your credits.
