posted in: News

Good news, everyone!

3DF Zephyr 7.5 is finally out now!

This latest update comes, among the many changes, with significant improvements in both quality and speed like never before in the quality of the reconstructed mesh (especially for thin structures), an all-improved UI and a lot more!

Check out the new major features in the video below or find the full changelog slightly further down!

3DF Zephyr 7.500 changelog

+ Improved mesh algorithm. Thickness is now computed automatically to better maintain thin structures.
+ Cameras group/rig relationship (translation/baseline and rotation) can now be specified during the project wizard.
+ Improved add photos wizard and workspace merge. Both can now work in a completely automatic mode.
+ The options dialog has been reworked and improved. You can now quickly search among the options.
+ Improved multispectral imagery support. The intra-bands adjustment works better, and several QoL improvements have been made.
+ Orthophotos are now embedded and saved with the workspace. Additionally, you can now directly generate an orthophoto from the Z axis (map) from the new project wizard.
+ Added an option to save partial reconstructions (unmerged clusters) on zep files at the end of the SfM.
+ Added an option to reset the gizmo rotation. Additionally, the camera doesn’t reset on cancel, and the object visibility doesn’t change when ok is pressed.
+ Export cameras in blender/json (nerf) format.
+ Added options to change the gizmo thickness and its screen size.
+ Improved 3D constraints importing and added an option to specify a projected coordinate system.
+ You can now define camera stations (groups of images with the same origin and pure rotation) during the project wizard.
+ Added support for las 1.4.
+ Added support for Leica Blk3d devices.
+ You can export an undistorted image with the full distortion bounding box.
+ Improved Nira exporter with native SDK support.
+ Osgb and kmz tiles are now exported with the new algorithm for improved performance.
+ Enabled orthophoto editor for multispectral datasets.
+ Support for NavVis cameras.
+ Added a utility to extract or generate bubble views stored in point clouds. Possibility to export mask and parameters.
+ Added progress bar and cancel button on several filters.
+ Many minor fixes and QoL improvements.
