Patch-based Multi-view Stereo Software
(PMVS - Version 2)

This page gives details about the windows port of Yasutaka Furukawa software :

The sources and binary are released under GPL licence.

The source are modified version of Yasutaka original GPL sources that you can download here.

IMPORTANT - This page is deprecated, you must consider the CMVS one now :

CMVS => CMVS/genOption/PMVS2 in one package.


Notes :

Local modification to compile and run on windows (32 bits version) :

- Static array with dynamic value size are not accepted by microsoft VS 2008 compiler.

- Use jpeg/gsl/pthread/blas/lapack/f2c precompiled library.

- iterator.begin()-1 could crash on windows stl.

- Optimize the JPEG loading.

Additional notes (Known issues):

The binary could crash because of too large memory allocation if you use many images. Use resonable sized dataset.
