Dependencies

OpenMVS relies on a number of open source libraries, some of which are optional. For details on customizing the build process, see the compilation instructions.


Build instructions

Required tools:

  • CMake
  • git
  • C/C++ compiler like Visual Studio or GCC

Windows compilation

Visual Studio 2008 or newer are supported. Please note that the development is done mainly on Windows, so this platform build is well tested. The latest pre-built binaries for fast testing can be download from here. Visual Studio 2017 and dependencies automation tool vcpkg are used in this example.

#Make a toplevel directory for deps & build & src somewhere:
mkdir OpenMVS
cd OpenMVS

#Get and install dependencies using vcpkg;
#choose the desired triplet, like "x64-windows", by setting the VCPKG_DEFAULT_TRIPLET environment variable or by specifying it after each package:
vcpkg install zlib boost eigen3 ceres opencv cgal glew glfw3

#Get VCGLib (Required):
git clone https://github.com/cdcseacave/VCG.git

#Get and unpack OpenMVS in OpenMVS/src:
git clone https://github.com/cdcseacave/openMVS.git src

#Make build directory:
mkdir build
cd build

#Run CMake, where VCPKG_ROOT environment variable points to the root of vcpkg installation:
cmake . ..\src -G "Visual Studio 15 2017 Win64" -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=%VCPKG_ROOT%\scripts\buildsystems\vcpkg.cmake -DVCPKG_TARGET_TRIPLET=x64-windows -DVCG_ROOT="..\VCG"

#Open the solution in MSVC and build it

Linux compilation

Ubuntu 16.04 is used next as the example linux distribution.

#Prepare and empty machine for building:
sudo apt-get update -qq && sudo apt-get install -qq
sudo apt-get -y install build-essential git mercurial cmake libpng-dev libjpeg-dev libtiff-dev libglu1-mesa-dev libxmu-dev libxi-dev
main_path=`pwd`

#Eigen (Required)
hg clone https://bitbucket.org/eigen/eigen#3.2
mkdir eigen_build && cd eigen_build
cmake . ../eigen
make && sudo make install
cd ..

#Boost (Required)
sudo apt-get -y install libboost-iostreams-dev libboost-program-options-dev libboost-system-dev libboost-serialization-dev

#OpenCV (Required)
sudo apt-get -y install libopencv-dev

#CGAL (Required)
sudo apt-get -y install libcgal-dev libcgal-qt5-dev

#VCGLib (Required)
git clone https://github.com/cdcseacave/VCG.git vcglib

#Ceres (Required)
sudo apt-get -y install libatlas-base-dev libsuitesparse-dev
git clone https://ceres-solver.googlesource.com/ceres-solver ceres-solver
mkdir ceres_build && cd ceres_build
cmake . ../ceres-solver/ -DMINIGLOG=ON -DBUILD_TESTING=OFF -DBUILD_EXAMPLES=OFF
make -j2 && sudo make install
cd ..

#GLFW3 (Optional)
sudo apt-get -y install freeglut3-dev libglew-dev libglfw3-dev

#OpenMVS
git clone https://github.com/cdcseacave/openMVS.git openMVS
mkdir openMVS_build && cd openMVS_build
cmake . ../openMVS -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DVCG_ROOT="$main_path/vcglib"

#If you want to use OpenMVS as shared library, add to the CMake command:
-DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=ON

#Install OpenMVS library (optional):
make -j2 && sudo make install

Mac OS X compilation

Install dependencies, run CMake and make.

#Install dependencies
brew update
brew install boost eigen opencv cgal ceres-solver
main_path=`pwd`

#VCGLib (Required)
git clone https://github.com/cdcseacave/VCG.git vcglib

#Getting the OpenMVS sources:
git clone https://github.com/cdcseacave/openMVS.git

#Build OpenMVS
mkdir openMVS_build && cd openMVS_build
cmake . ../openMVS -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DVCG_ROOT="$main_path/vcglib"

#If you want to use OpenMVS as shared library, add to the CMake command:
-DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=ON

#Install OpenMVS library (optional):
make && sudo make install
