We have scanned a big cathedral and there are some stations which the camera seems to be tilted somehow.

Is there a way to edit the photos in the model? (correct the angle)

besides, the lighting is a bit too much. too much lighting is affecting the beauty of the place.

What is the solution?

In short. No
Can you go back and rescan the problem areas again? Add it to the scan and disable the others in workshop

Not really. this is quite a high profile building.
it took us months to get them to close the place for us.

Sadly at this point in time there is no way to go into each image and touch it up. If you could if you changed the geometry of the photo what so ever the stitching of the images would not line up so you would delete the whole process.

My advice to you would be approach each shoot as your shooting either stills or film and make sure each pano is exactly the way you want to capture it. With time you will get a feel of how the camera captures images.

If you have very high columns there may be some tilting but this would also be the case shooting stills depending on what lens you us.

I hope this has been helpful.

Best of luck
Gary

Thanks Gary,
I have a two way level on top of the camera. I check the level before each station.
I don't know why is turned out this way.

maybe because it's more than 200 scans. I guess I'll need to ask MP guys.

If you want to past the link to the SC here I'll have a look and maybe can figure out what went wrong. When you start getting above 200 scans it can sometimes be an issues with the iPad. What version of iPad are you using?

Actually you did a great job, one would expect that the columns would be slightly distorted as of the height of them. The bright spot light is something you all ways need to be aware of but now that you've discovered this when you do your walk through of your next site you can tell them that the spot light must be turned off.

The one thing to remember is that this is cutting edge tech and no one has ever seen a VT of this cathedral before so they'll be wow'ed by what you have produced for them so not to worry. You did a fantastic job and I'm sure they will all be amazed at the tour.

BTW, you should not have any issues with the iPad Air 2, great choice

This is stunning! Great job! I don't think you have much, if anything, to be concerned about. As mentioned, now you know about the spot light. And thank you for that reminder, Gary.

Nice Job !!!!!! It would be interesting to see the results of shooting under low light conditions for a dramatic effect.
I understand that was not your desired goal.Just a thought.

I email MP. they said it can't be changed.

There are two issues here. first one is the tilt of the camera.
I am always using two perpendicular levels to adjust the camera. I'm sure it's not my fault.

So, I had to thoroughly assess the model. it's not just one scan point, it's all over the place. and the tilt goes toward the center from both sides.

as if, the ground is not flat. it's a curve with the bottom in the middle of the model. like we are in a massive circle.

the lighting issue is discussed as well. no solution yet.
