How many images can the PIX4Dcloud servers process?


PIX4Dcloud can successfully process a certain number of images according to the characteristics of the project, the processing options, and the requested outputs.

Information: Users with a PIX4Dcloud or a PIX4Dcloud Advanced license are not allowed to process more than 4000 images per project. More information about cloud allowance at PIX4Dcloud - FAQ.

The variety and combinations of the parameters mentioned above can be many. This article is intended to provide some benchmarks and to show the results of some tests performed with significant camera resolutions, common project characteristics and default processing options.
