The next version of 3DF Zephyr (Codename Clementine) is already in development.

The tentative release date is set for the early Summer 2019, although some closed beta versions will be certainly released before.

Here's a brief report of the planned features in development and their status.

Note: this is not the final feature lists: new planned features will be unveiled as we get closer to release!

Major features and updates

Detail enhancement for mesh Better detail extraction during the mvs/mesh extraction Ready for testing (90%)
Normal map extraction You can bake normals maps (Object and Tangent space) starting from an high poly mesh to any textured mesh. Ready for testing (90%)
Speeded up MVS stereo generation The multiview stereo has been speeded up further Ready for testing (90%)
Better texture UV packing Better UV packing algorithm during mesh generation (space saving) Ready for testing (90%)
Unified Mesh and dense point cloud computation In order to optimize the computation, mesh and dense point cloud will be computed one shot by default. It will be still possible to generate a separate point cloud if needed. Ready for testing (90%)
Export orthophoto as single tiff The tiled orthophoto can now be exported as a unique BigTiff file Ready for testing (90%)
3D stereo display support Quad buffer support for stereo 3D display Ready for testing (90%)
3D mouse support 3Dconnexion mouse support Ready for testing (90%)
Major library update All our core libraries for (3D engine, Math, GUI) have been updated to the latest version with several bug fixes. Ready for testing (90%)
Dxf import You can import polylines and points as dxf in Zephyr Aerial Ready for testing (90%)
Orthophoto generation speed up The orthophoto generation process has been speeded up Ready for testing (90%)
