Pixpro Tutorial Videos Part 1 - Essentials

Pixpro Team Lukas Zmejevskis
Apr 11, 2024

Our Pixpro photogrammetry software is relatively easy to use, but everyone needs a starting point. We created a series of short videos that demonstrate how to begin using Pixpro even if you have never used the software before. This blog will serve as a playlist with some additional information for all of the videos.

If you prefer watching videos directly on YouTube, go to this playlist. You will find similar information in video descriptions. However, these videos are about software only and do not provide information about data capture. Our blog has many articles about that.

If you do not have a sample set ready for testing, no worries. You can download a very simple data set here on our website, or you can get a couple of more different sets we used in these videos. We also uploaded already processed projects with dense point clouds if you do not wish to test out processing capabilities yourself.
