  1. SpeiVerta, OK, I think may best not to try to climb Everest as first mountain! CHI have provided a sample set of images - which definitely work. If there is any problem, still doing this, there is no point going on to your relatively-massive pictures. Please forgive me if these duplicate what you know or have tried, but this is the simplest set of steps, could you try these as they definitely work. Please try these and let us know if you successfully make and view a basic HSH RTI as below. Dave On your PC, if you don’t already have one, make a folder RTI at the top level on your C: drive, and within that, make a folder Fish_1000 so you end up with C:\RTI\Fish_1000 Download the Fish_1000 set of example files from http://culturalheritageimaging.org/What_We_Offer/Downloads/Process/ And then – somewhere else on your PC - expand the fish_fossil-data-set_1000.zip file. In the zip file, down one level, you will see a folder jpeg-exports Copy that folder and its contents into C:\RTI\Fish_1000 so you end up with C:\RTI\Fish_1000\jpeg-exports which will contain 36 photographs named fish_fossil_01.jpg through fish_fossil_36.jpg Start RTI Builder In the Project Name box, type Fish_test In the Operation Sequence block, click on the first option – Highlight based (HSH Fitter) Then click the [Start new project] button On the Image selection screen which opens with an initial blank list, click the [Open folder] button at the right-hand edge of the screen In the Windows selection box which pops-up, it usually seems to default browsing to ‘My Documents’. Click on the ‘Computer’ icon (fourth one down) in the left-hand bar Double-click on C: Double-click on the RTI folder Double-click on the Fish_1000 folder Then click [Open] (N.B. please don’t click on the ‘jpeg-exports’ folder) You should then see a pop-up ‘Loading images’ with a progress bar When all the images have loaded, you should then see 36 images in the selection pane after which you should be able to proceed with RTI processing; and as you proceed with building your RTI model, you should see an xml and other folders appear in the project folder, so eventually, if you just proceed (using default options and not cropping) you will have: C:\RTI\Fish_1000\assembly-files C:\RTI\Fish_1000\finished-files C:\RTI\Fish_1000\jpeg-exports C:\RTI\Fish_1000\Fish_test.xml and your finished RTI will be C:\RTI\Fish_1000\finished-files\ Fish_test_1000.rti You will then have an HSH RTI which you should try to open with the viewer C:\RTI\Fish_1000\finished-files\ Fish_test_1000.rti
  2. SpeiVerta, Apologies that I can only reply in English. I can see there is definitely a problem, the size - as read by the HSHfitter - is enormous. The height and width used by the HSH fitter should, with no re-size, be the same as the 'Actual size' (see attached screenshot). It may well be that your images are too big for that HSH fitter, there are other options if that is the case but some questions/suggestions that may help identify the problem: 1) Did this work before for these exact images and just stop now? 2) Is this the first time you tried to build an HSH RTI? 3) Have you successfully made an HSH RTI for other images of your own? 4) IF you made one OK before, if you go back to that set, does it still work? 5) Have you tried making an HSH RTI with the sample set of fish-fossil images you can download from the CHI website? 6) If you can make the fish-fossil OK, it may be your images or the memory demand are too big. How many images are you using? / what is their size in MB? 7) If you only process, say, eight of your images, does the same happen? 8) If you - just for testing - make a copy of your images with smaller resolution, say 1/4 size, does that work? 9) Also, It is always useful to also report what operating system/version you are running?; also the source of your images? Dave
  3. David, Those modes are available if you generate via PTM rather than HSH. Dave (IOMNHAS)
  4. Mike, Just some more info to back your report up and maybe shed a little light for the developers: I've just tried this on my installation - with both CHI supplied test data and my own data. I had never tried for a PG set before, I get exactly the same as you. BUT if I highlight an RTI image set, it will allow me to export an RDF. Dave
  5. 3dguy - thanks for your experiments and posting the above; still awaiting for response from Alessandro so don't know if he still has a problem; interesting re possible benefit of removing the metadata. cheers/Dave
  6. Hi Alessandro, Thanks for that information. By 'source' for the images I meant what camera and what type of file are you capturing (ARW, RAW, DNG, TIF etc.) and resolution; and any processing you're doing before attempting to make the RTI PTM. If you are able to share, if you could upload two folders (i) the files directly from the camera, and (ii) whatever you're trying process, to DropBox or similar, then I'd be glad to have a look and try to build PTM on my own workstations (will be a few days before I would have time though). Regards Dave
  7. (This thread would really be better in the 'RTI Processing' section, maybe one of the Admins could move it?) Hi Alessandro, A couple of questions, then a suggestion. 1) Have you ever built successfully using PTM? 2) Can you advise what operating system and version you're running? 3) Can you advise size and source of your images? To identify if it is a problem with your images or with the installation on your computer, could I suggest you try using one of the sample image sets which CHI provide, as they are known to work. Please forgive me if these duplicate what you know or have tried, but this is the simplest set of steps, could you try these as they definitely work (below are written for a Windows operating system).

  8. Jason, it may well be downloading OK, but then as soon as the AV 'sees' the file, it may take a dislike and move it into quarantine - so downloading on other devices may be no help (or relevant to the issue), if it is the AV that is moving the RTI installer as soon as it is 'seen' on your PC. Dave
  9. Jason, That sounds to me like your Anti-Virus may be moving it into quarantine as soon as it sees it on the PC. Can you look in your AV's quarantine folder or log? Dave
  10. Jason, The official download page is: http://culturalheritageimaging.org/What_We_Offer/Downloads/Process/index.html and you need to click on the link I've circled. I've just re-downloaded and it is currently working OK. If you still have failure messages, can you post a screenshot please? Dave
  11. Alex, Thanks for posting the file, it is a great help. I'm not an expert but from a quick look at the project file, it looks like there is a space in one of the folder names between 'Research' and 'Project' C:\Users\Alex\Desktop\UNI\Research Project\RTI\ScaniculaDark001 Try renaming without the space and let us know how you get on. Dave
  12. A_Siatou, Suggest you look at the systems built by Kirk Martinez (who contributes here but may be too polite to promote his own products) and colleagues at the University of Southampton: https://custom-imaging.co.uk/ https://custom-imaging.co.uk/geodesic-rti-dome/ Dave
  13. Christine, Can you post a screenshot of the error message please? (if there are multiple error messages, a screen shot of each message please). Also, can you look at the Windows event logs and post any messages there that relate to when you try to start RTI builder please. Dave
  14. p.s. is there any other format for beta comments that would be better? is there a tracker you would like them submitting to? Dave
