I was wondering if there is a known cap or limitation on the size of pointclouds that can be imported into this new ReCap software? I am working to create a pointcloud file to use in AutoCAD 2014, and have exported a .pts file from Leica Cyclone (which ReCap says it is compatible with). This .pts file is approximately 27 GB (which is not the full registration of all scans from the site surveyed). ReCap will begin the process of converting into .rcs, however after a couple of hours at around 50-55% the program will shut down and produce the generic AutoDesk error message I have become all too familiar with.
Is this file simply too large for ReCap to handle? Or would a different format work better (.ptg, .ptx, etc)?
Switching to PTGs did work (not faster, it just actually converted - as opposed to the PTS which continually crashed) for a partial conversion of the surveyed site's scan set. However ReCap is still crashing when attempting to convert the entire site scan set from PTG to RCS files. I have plenty of memory/processing power on my workstation, so I'm still curious if a file size limitation has been discovered for ReCap. Or if it will only work with a high level of decimation set in the initial setup (which would not work for my current project).
