Hello Sven and partners
Great Job, very effective new alignment tool
I tried it on an one piece original scan in order to be able to check the quality of the alignment with minimal overlapping, so I did cut the scan in two pieces leaving an overlapping zone of just 4-5mm, then moved to arbitrary position one of the two, then free aligned using the new contact selection tool and it worked out at first attempt, then i combined them, so I aligned te original one piece scan to the group and checked out that it fit perfectly, no flaws at all, it is very good.
Next scan I try it with real partial pairs
This is a very solid robust answer to to the wish to reintroduce the 3 or more points alignment method, similar in concept, more powerful, easier to use and VERY effective, my sincere compliments.
By the way I tried the 64bit build, it does not work onto windows XP64, the message error is that it is not a valid win32 application
, which sounds strange as the OS is 64bit and regularly runs all programs which are 64bit
Is this build compatible also with WInXP64? Or it is compatible only with WIn7/8 64bit? (strange that no one even speaks of Vista anymore, but with all the service packs in fact became almost good as seven, I guess it is just repelling people for the very good fame)
Win XP64 is really rare so there is no significative loss of compatibility, I just do not know what imply as a difficulty to have it built also for XP64, I just ignore it, but if it is only a matter few options in the compiler and not much effort might be an extra to add.
I personally tend to still keep the ol'good XP64, very light, very stable, very powerful and no tricky "unsecurity settings" I do not need, but I think came the time to have a dual boot to Seven64, I have an unused license, but have to take the time to do it
, I am too much curious to try the 64 version and see how mange large heavy scans I did.
BUG: I confirm MagWeb statment, on win XP64 in david 32bit >>>> free alignment +contact selection + texture = David hang and become irresponsive, must be killed
