Error R0072

Error R0072 can happen due to several reasons. 

  • Big files that require higher connection quality to upload. Try reducing the Image Scale:

  • Most of the cases are solved by connecting to the internet through an Ethernet cable. This will reduce micro-disconnections and will help PIX4Dreact finish the uploading.
  • Licenses issue: Make sure that the limits mentioned above are not reached.
