The main input to Pix4Dmodel are images that can be either JPEG or TIFF files. Video files can also be imported and used for processing (instead of still images).

Warning: Do not modify the images, i.e. do not rotate or edit the images. Modifying images alters the geometrical properties of the camera and may deteriorate the quality of the results.
Extension Description
.jpg, .jpeg JPEG images
.tif, .tiff Monochromatic TIFF
