  1. Last week
  2. Hi, I recently had to pack up our RTI supplies for someone to borrow, and found that our speedlight, transmitter, and the RTI highlight capture starter kit fit together inside a PS4 carrying case (the borrower had their own camera and tripod). Since I was making a list of contents for the case, I remembered this post and thought I would share some of the equipment that we have and the price at the time I bought them from B&H (about a year ago): Godox TT685N Thinklite TTL Flash for Nikon Cameras, $110 Godox X1T-N TTL Wireless Flash Trigger Transmitter for Nikon, $46 Panasonic Eneloop Rechargeable AA Ni-MH Batteries with Charger (for the speedlight), $17.99 3 Legged Thing Punks Anarchy Patti Tripod with AirHed Mini Ball Head, $119.99 We already had a Nikon camera and lens that were bought long ago, so I don't know the cost to buy an entire RTI setup. I also use SmartShooter 4 for tethering and live view. Hope this is helpful for someone out there!

  4. Other thing I tried is, after allowing thrird party apps via terminal an trying to unblock the programs the new error message is that the program closed unexpectedly :O WHAT? Please, someone has managed to get things working? Here is my terminal commands arqueoartis@iMac-de-Carmen ~ % sudo spctl --master-disable arqueoartis@iMac-de-Carmen ~ % xattr -cr /Applications/RTIbuilder-v2.0.2.app xattr: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/Applications/RTIbuilder-v2.0.2.app/Contents/MacOS/JavaApplicationStub' arqueoartis@iMac-de-Carmen ~ % Looks like JavaApplicationStub is the problem? NO idea.
  5. This problem is far from being solved!! I managed to open the program via terminal as Nanny the Mummy said but as the program open via terminal you cannot generate the rti file as you get another error. Running Monterrey OSX Error image file attached. Has anyone managed to fix this??? I really need to use the program for work!! We are starting campaing next week :-( I think this project is forgotten and not updating anymore. If so, please let us know so we don´t care about carring the RTI equipement to the site again :-(
  6. Is there an answer to this question from anyone at CHI?
  7. This issue happened with me too are they sorting it or finding some solution for it
  8. We installed a new dome in the Ashmolean this year: https://custom-imaging.co.uk/ashmolean-museum-dome15/
  9. Yes a lab jack is the thing to get - check platform size as there are some small ones around. Its probably a good idea to bolt it to a metal plate for stability if you're adding a turntable on top. cheers Kirk
  10. Peter, The item you want to search for is "Laboratory Jacks". They are common in chemistry labs to, say, set glass ware at an appropriate height. I can't photograph mine right now, but link below is similar to this one I found on line. I use mine both for both photogrammetry and RTI (useful to set object height inside the dome). For photogrammetry, I tend to use my big turntable to rotate to each azimuth, and relocate the camera boom arm to set the camera at different elevations after each rotation (just raising the object isn't always enough as you may need to adjust distance + need to 'look down' on/towards the top of the object). For RTI though the lab jack is ideal, almost indispensable, as it allows you to adjust height inside/under the dome (object stays static and doesn't rotate). Dave https://www.glsed.co.uk/product/science/lab-equipment/labware/laboratory-jack-25kg-200-x-200mm/g325331 p.s. I actually have a wooden board atop my lab jack, screwed to the metal top. The board is screwed to the metal, and has a thin rubber mat stuck on top. The rubber mat is black to avoid reflections, but is marked so I can tell the extent of the metal plate so I ensure any objects are within the centre of gravity of the jack. The outer area of the board beyond the jack is helpful to sit scale ruler, X-rite colourchecker, and RTI reflective spheres, on.
  11. I work part time with a small museum. We want to digitize our collection and am after a small platform that can either mechanically (by screw maybe or electronically), raise and lower a delicate light-weight object 150 – 200mm. Seems like there are REALLY cheap ones that are NOT safe/accurate/well made…….. and that’s about it. Happy to spend a $200-300.... or more depending on device. (We have a turntable on top of this.) Happy on ideas to "think outside the square" Any suggestions would be very appreciated.
  12. Hi Thierry - We have done a lot of work on the software and now the DLNCC and the inspector are integrated, and also we have added an archiver. We also support collecting information about processing. You can have RTi and photogrammetry image bundles (as before) and now there is also support for documentary image sets, and spectral imaging. There are many other improvements. We have a release candidate we are testing right now, with a few others - and we hope to get the 1.0 final release out by the end of the year, or early January, depending on what we find in the testing. Thanks for your encouragement! Carla
  13. Hello, Please feel free to release the DLN:CC full release once available, and looking forward to test the added features. Thanks and Regards, Thierry Fremaux

    System requirements

    What is the system requirements to run RTIBuilder?
  15. I think it's mostly for those who use 3d scanners or both not just photogrammetry, but for me this looks quite promising. One of 3d scanners manufacturers Artec 3d included photogrammetry to their software. What I understood is that user should upload same set of photos that are needed for traditional photogrammetry workflow, but they will be used only to make textures. The shape will come from a scanner. For some cases it sonds good as scanners can't create textures of same quality as photogrammetry can while with photogrammetry there are issues with processing complex shapes. There are ways to combine them using one software for scanning and separate for photogrammetry. I actually asked about such workflow on this forum before. I stopped on getting two models one from scanner and one from photogrammetry and then baking textures from one model to another. Again not always work nice as depending of an object shapes can differ more than needed. I've seen ads about webinar they are having this Thursday where they will show this feature. For me it would be usefull to see if buying AS 16 worth it. But it may also usefull for other people so I wanted to share. Here you can register for it.
  16. Thank you both for your responses, The previously completed projects are still working fine weirdly. And I've been able to recreate them from the same image set. The L: drive is a second hard drive I have installed in my PC. The image set for projects I have completed are stored in the same place (But their own folders). I'm going to attempt to attach the .xml log file - but I'm not 100% sure I understand what it is, hopefully it'll make more sense to you guys! I'll make a copy of the cmd text incase thats of more benefit. Thanks again, Luke minerva.xml
  17. I agree with Dave's suggestions for additional information. Also, if you are using the HSH fitter do NOT use any of the advanced options. That's known to cause problems. It doesn't explain the issues on PTM though. There are certain errors that we see frequently - Unknown error detected, and also a JPEG library call error. The errors you report are not ones I've seen before. Is it possible that you have a permission problem, and the software can't write files (like the lp file)? And finally, as Dave notes, it's sometimes helpful to look at the xml log file that is created for your project. There can be clues in there as to what is happening, and what steps were successfully completed. Carla
  18. I have Big Sur-- I changed the security settings via the terminal code that was provided. I still couldn't open the application. After having no luck, I clicked on an RTI file that I had and asked to open it---the RTI builder software opened afterwards and is working.
  19. Linda S. I too am trying to use various photography techniques to make it possible to read old headstones. Does RTI work for you? It sounded like you need to be able to control the lighting angle to work with RTI, but I will be doing the photography outside, in natural light. Scott E.
  20. Luke, Sorry no immediate suggestions, just a few questions: Are you saying that none of your previously successful projects will work now? If you download the standard known-to-work fish fossil image set from the CHI website, can you get that to process? What sort of drive is L:? - local? network? Is there any difference if you try and process a project stored on C:? (doesn't need to be big, half a dozen images would be enough to test) In cases like this, it can also be useful to attach the project .xml file as that can sometimes reveal subtle issues with file names etc. Dave
  21. Dear All, Thank you for taking the time to read this. I am attempting to create RTI's for my masters thesis, and am coming across the same error messages regardless of what I do. Both HSH and PTM have the same error messages (With the name swapped per method) that pop up in sequence 1 through to 3. I've attached images of the error pop-ups. I have created both HSH and PTM on this PC without issue before, and not moved where either of the fitters are, or the files used, but for some reason I can no longer create RTI. I am running a Windows 10 64bit OS, with AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Processor and 16GB RAM. I've checked the file pathways and dont see any spaces or things to cause issue - but have copied the file pathways below: L:\Diss_Images\A_Relief_RTI_img (There is then the jpeg-exports folder within) C:\RTIbuilder_v2_0_2 C:\RTIbuilder_v2_0_2\Fitters (Both PTM and HSH fitters are stored here.) If there's any more information I can provide that would help diagnose this issue please ask. Thanks in advance, Luke
  22. Hello When opening RTI Builder, asks for JAVA SE 6, but after download it it says that a newer version is installed and doesn't go on. I have used the software in previous versions. Is there any workarounds? Thanxs
  23. Hello, A solution may be the installation of Parallels desktop for mac. After you can install on the virtual environments a previous version of MacOs or Windows. You will need a bootable installer ( https://support.apple.com/en-nz/HT201372), next go to Parallels desktop (near apple top left)>file>new> select the middle option Install Windows or another os from a DVD or image file > select the thumb drive follow the prompts for installation. Then you can install your old programs 32bit like RTI Builder. Best, Renaud
  24. Hi Sunita, No I have not (yet!!). It seems that nobody else has a solution to this problem...
  25. Hello Michael, I am little late to be here. But I am having the same questions right now. I read the paper you mentioned where they claim HSH surface calculation is more sensitive to the surface changes and they extracted the calculated surface normals using RTI Builder, where I cant find how they calculate and exported the surface information. Did you come accross any solution to this? If yes would you like to share? Thank you in advance.
  26. Hello, Recently I have started looking for quantitative RTI data analysis (before and after damage / monitoring). I was wondering whether there is a tool to export the surafce information (geometrt, normals etc) from an RTI project. Is there a tool avaliable for my query? or any other way to do it? Any suggetsions? Thank you in advance.
  27. Hi Andreas. Exactly what I am looking for. How to export the surface information from the RTI builder? If you found any solution or information please do share.
