What are the differences between Pix4D Desktop and Pix4D Cloud?

Pix4D Desktop enables users to have full control of their project: adding Ground Control Points (GCPs) and Manual Tie Points (MTPs), editing the densified point cloud and changing a lot more settings which can improve the final results.

Pix4D Cloud also allows to achieve high-quality results, however, for user convenience, projects are processed using default templates. Pix4D Cloud is the easiest way to share a project online with just a link and to do some simple but practical analysis.


Which version is used on Pix4D Cloud?

The cloud servers run the latest stable version of the desktop software for processing (not the preview): https://cloud.pix4d.com/download/.


Can the results be shared?

Yes, the results can be shared. Access the project and click the Share button on the top right corner. An external link and an HTML embedded link will be created including the annotations and changes that were made.


Which results will be shared?

When using the Share link the 3D Model and Map visualization (based on the valid solution) together with the annotations will be shared. 

Important: The original images and the output files will not be shared.
