PIX4Dmatic projects can be seamlessly imported into PIX4Dsurvey by simply drag and dropping the project file or by using the home screen. In order for all the files to be correctly recognized, the original folder structure must be preserved.
It is possible to import existing PIX4Dmatic (.p4m) projects by drag and dropping it on the screen, using the home screen or the menu bar. Projects can also be opened using the Ctrl + O or ⌘ + O shortcut.
If the image folder is not recognized
If the location of the images is not automatically recognized a pop-up message appears while importing the PIX4Dmatic project file:
- Click Find
- In the Find your files folder navigate to the folder with images.
- Click Select Folder.
- Click Ok.
Once the import is completed both the point cloud and images will be displayed.
PIX4Dmatic project is not correctly imported
If a PIX4Dmatic project is not displayed correctly after the import into PIX4Dsurvey, some project files could be missing or are not stored in the correct location.
We recommend checking that the following files are available and correctly stored:
- PIX4Dmatic project file ( Project_folder\.p4m).
- Project_folder\processing\densifications folder.
- Original images.
Once all the files are in their expected location, reimport the project.
