Depth Scanner

Parameters

Model

Choose between „Fast“ and „Accurate“. Fast may give sharper results.

Base Resolution

The image resolution on which the depth map is computed.

Detail Enhancement

Runs an additional pass to enhance details. The higher the setting the stronger the filter. A high value may give inaccurate results.

Sharpen Edges

Runs an additional pass of edge sharpening on the result.

Temporal smoothing

Activating this will reduce flickering.

Temporal averaging

Includes the depth from neighbouring frames to calculate a smoother depth map. It is recommended to apply a high “Detail Enhancement” setting if used.

Mapping Mode

Define, how the computed depth will be mapped to the 0-1 range for displaying.

Raw

This is the raw depth prediction. Use this for consistent results between frames.

Normalize

Scale the computed depth to the 0-1 range. This can introduce flickering on image sequences / videos.

Guided

Set (and keyframe) the two points Near Guide Point and Far Guide Point as well the Near and Far values to define which parts of the image correspond to which depth.

Mode

Choose between “Depth Map”, “Heatmap” and “Slicing”. “Depth map” and “Heatmap” output the pure depth, whilst slicing lets you select parts of the images based on depth.

Minimum (only if “Slicing”)

The near plane to cut.

Maximum (only if “Slicing”)

The far plane to cut.

Soft Border (only if “Slicing”)

Blur amount of the cutting planes.

Backend & Performance

Use GPU (on GPU version of the plugin only)

Run calculations on the GPU. This will give massive speedups compared to CPU mode.

Lower Precision

Compute with reduced precision if possible. This can save up to half of the memory and give you some speedups.

Samples (not available for all settings)

The number of ai samples to calculate. This will improve the models accuracy.

Computation Tiles (not available for all settings)

Split the computation into several tiles. This can help if you run out of memory.

Write logfiles

Write logfiles. This will slow down the plugin, but in case of an error, you can provice us helpful insights about what is going wrong.
