Does a Project processed with Pix4Dmapper Discovery need to be reprocessed with Pix4Dmapper Pro?

  • If project is processed using Pix4Dmapper Discovery, it can be opened with Pix4Dmapper Pro.
  • The default Discovery settings and the settings defined by the user will be loaded when opening the project with Pix4Dmapper Pro. Therefore, when switching from Discovery to Pro license, some processing options need to be adjusted.
