    Is the Beta access admission by invite only. I did not see any questionnaire to fill in after following the beta 5 link to sign into my account.
    Kind regards,

      just under "my account" you have "beta access"...

        Not a real bug.. it is just a message a little bit confusing. Just after clicking "run" on the textured Mesh generation wizard, you get a message window which says "finalizing".
        Is it normal ? It should not be "Initializing" ?

                  Has anyone had bad luck with the beta version? I've been doing a data set that I know is "good enough" because with the old software it uses 1649 out of 1650 pictures. With the beta version, it's using a lot less pictures. Out of 1700 pictures it only used 1358 of them and one end of the model had a huge flaw. Is anyone else experiencing this, or is it just my data set (the inside of a cave)?

                    Hi Randolph,

                    we received you datasets (the ones with 800 cameras), and we already made some parameter re-balancing, without changing the speed of the reconstruction. We'll be pushing them with the new update later tomorrow.

                    In general, there is no known issue (to the best of our knowledge, we didn't another report of this kind), but having changed the algorithms require to tune everything better. Your datasets present a quite challenging acquisition. However, if you are still having problems, I would kindly ask to also share the bigger datasets, along with the settings used with the previous version.
