How to Calculate PIX4Dcatch Projects in Credits

Credits = Image resolution in MP * number of images /100.

The image resolution is measured in megapixels by multiplying its width and height.

The PIX4Dcatch default resolution is 2.7MP. Higher resolutions will vary according to the device and can be calculated separately.
