What camera settings on Mavic 3 Enterprise to achieve optimum 3D results using WebODM to process?

I did my first test mapping flight today using M3E with camera set to:
DJI Mavic 3?E WIDE
GSD 1.21 cm/pixel
Terrain Follow off
ALT relative to take off point
Flight route alt 148 ft
Target surface to Takeoff point 0 ft.
Takeoff Speed 22.4
Speed 26.4
Elevation optimization off
Upon completion RTH

Advanced settings
side overlap ratio (%) 70
Frontal Overlap ratio (%) 80
Course angle 0 degrees
Margin (ft) 0
Photo Mode Timed interval Shot

The resulting 3D map has many holes in it. It just looks crappy.

I’d change WIDE to FULL or native, which should be 4:3 or 3:2 aspect ratio for that sensor. Overlap/sidelap calculations in most flight planners do not take into account 16:9 or other cropped aspect ratios.

For good 3D, you’ll want 85% or greater for both overlap/sidelap.

Thanks for information. I didn’t realize that wide meant 16:9
Also didn’t realize that the overlap should be that high for 3D.

Yes, floor for great 3D is 83% sidelap and forward lab. It’s possible to get decent 3D-ish data with less, but that is the minimum to guarantee good data.

Thanks.
The only camera option for the Mavic 3E is wide. I think that’s to differentiate the camera from the tele camera that is also on the drone. I have aspect ratio set to 4:3 which is maximum sensor coverage.

Is there a benefit using oblique?

For 3D, there is definitely a benefit to obliques, if you need to see the sides of things in your 3D model, it is obligatory.

I installed everything right working but when trying to process the images it appears “not enough memory”

My Dell g15 16gb ram 1tb Ssd note

Any tips to solve?

How many images, and what size, are you attempting to process, and what settings are you using?

16GB will limit what you can do, it is only suitable for very small datasets.
