- 360 camera is available on the project - Reconstruct supports the following cameras and stabilizers: 360 Cameras and Stabilizers
- Reconstruct Capture app with Hyperlapse functionality is installed on a mobile device: Getting Started with 360 Capture
- Reconstruct project has a 2D floor plan for the location where the Hyperlapse capture is supposed to be taken: Uploading Drawings
If your project has a BIM model and 2D drawings, please make sure that your drawings are aligned to the BIM model prior to any reality capture (i.e. Hyperlapse capture)
- Optional: Reconstruct Tags are utilized on the project: Alignment with Tags . If you are planning to use tags in a long capture, we recommend you to place minimum 6 tags per 10 minutes of capture (an hour of capture ideally should have 24 tags)
Capture Reality with Reconstruct Hyperlapse:
- Open Capture app on mobile device and select the project for which you want to take a Hyperlapse capture
- Select the drawing for the location of your Hyperlapse capture
- Turn on your 360 camera
You can now mount your camera on your hard hat or on your stabilizer.
- Select Hyperlapse from the bottom menu in the Capture app
- Connect your mobile device to the wifi network of your 360 camera
- Select a start point for your capture on the drawing (Starting pin)
- Calibrate your path tracking by following on-screen instructions
Walk 10-15 feet / ~5 meters and set the second pin to verify your location
- While capturing, keep the Capture app open and keep the camera of your mobile device unobstructed, ideally facing forward - this is for Reconstruct to be able to track your path in real-time and for placing the images along the path (see also point 14)
If you put your phone away (i.e. the camera is obstructed) during the Hyperlapse capture, we can still process your video. However, the initial images might not show up at the correct location - but we will place them correctly once the 3D reality model is finished processing and aligned.
- Keep capturing...
If you want to improve / correct your capture path while tracking your, you can place an anchor point on the drawing to readjust your capture path.
- To Stop your Hyperlapse capture, click on Finish Capture.
- Next, click on the "Finish and Upload" button.
Now you have the choice between these two options:
Option 1: Transfer your Hyperlapse video file from your 360 camera to your Capture app. This transfer starts automatically once you have hit the "Finish and Upload" button.
Option 2: You can start another Hyperlapse before your video file is transferred from your 360 camera to your Capture app. For this, go to "Upload / Download activity log" and pause the video file transfer. Now you can start another Hyperlapse capture by following steps 6-11. Make sure you resume this upload at a later point in time.
- Once your video file is on the Capture app, the app will automatically upload the video file to the Reconstruct cloud and start processing.
- Check your upload status in the "Upload / Download activity log" to make sure that the file is properly uploaded to the Reconstruct cloud.
- You will receive an email as soon as the images from the video are available to be viewed in the Reconstruct 2D Viewer or on the Capture app.
- Next, you will receive an email when the Reconstruct 3D reality model from your Hyperlapse video is ready to be viewed and measured in the Reconstruct Viewer (2D and 3D).
Tips & Tricks:
A. If you do not want to transfer files on your phone data plan, go to "Settings" and switch the toggle of your "Allow Hyperlapse upload through cellular connection" to OFF.
B. Reconstruct tags are the most reliable way to align point clouds to each other. We therefore recommend that you utilize them throughout your project (Alignment with Tags)
