The ZED SOP uses the ZED to scan and create geometry. For more information and to know what ZED SDK to install refer to the ZED article.



Parameters - Page

Camera camera - Selects which ZED camera to use.

Sample sample - While enabled the ZED camera samples points in space. Once disabled it will generate the surface from the points, as well as any normal or texture attributes.

Reset reset - Clears the extracted geometry and resets spatial mapping.

Reset Pulse resetpulse - Triggers the Reset immediately on button release (button-up). This can be accessed in python using the pulse() method.

Preview preview - - Select level of detail of the preview when camera samples.

  • No Preview nopreview - No preview is shown when camera samples.

  • Limited Preview limited - The level of detail of the preview is limited.

  • Full Preview full - Preview displays all available points.

Maximum Memory maxmemory - Sets the maximum memory used for spatial mapping.

Resolution resolution - Sets the spatial mapping resolution used by the camera. A smaller resolution creates a detailed geometry and higher resolution keeps only bigger vairiations in geometry.

Range range - Sets distance range of objects that will be extracted after spatial mapping from the camera. A smaller depth range will use objects close to the camera and higher depth range will use objects that are farther from the camera.

Normals normals - When enabled, the extracted geometry will have normals.

Texture texture - The spatial mapping texture and texture coordinates of the mesh will be created when enabled. The spatial mapping texture can be retrieved using the ZED TOP.

Filter filter - - Set the filtering level of the mesh.

  • Low low - Small holes in the geometry will be removed.
  • Medium medium - Geometry will be smoothed.
  • High high - The number of traingles in the geometry will be reduced and the geometry will be smoothed.

Consolidate Points consolidatepts - When enabled, redundant points that are closed together will be merged.

An Operator Family that reads, creates and modifies 3D polygons, curves, NURBS surfaces, spheres, meatballs and other 3D surface data.

To pulse a parameter is to send it a signal from a CHOP or python or a mouse click that causes a new action to occur immediately. A pulse via python is via the .pulse() function on a pulse-type parameter, such as Reset in a Speed CHOP. A pulse from a CHOP is typically a 0 to 1 to 0 signal in a channel.

The width and height of an image in pixels. Most TOPs, like the Movie File In TOP can set the image resolution. See Aspect Ratio for the width/height ratio of an image, taking into account non-square pixels.

An Operator Family that creates, composites and modifies images, and reads/writes images and movies to/from files and the network. TOPs run on the graphics card's GPU.

Operators that have 1 or more input, like a Math CHOP, are called filters. See Generator.
