Enjoy expanded photogrammetry capabilities of ReCap Photo, our new desktop and cloud solution built for UAV and drone processes. Read frequently asked questions.

We see how laser scanners are democratizing reality capture and the same can be said of drones. Previously, aerial surveying methods meant spending tens of thousands of dollars to charter a one-time scan from a professional service company using LiDAR-equipped plane. Now, it is possible to do the same work with a drone or UAV, which has dramatically reduced the cost and increased the accessibility of site reality capture. Additionally, drones have made it easier to safely capture hard-to-access or inaccessible areas where traditional surveying could be dangerous or impractical.

These improvements are not just limited to hardware, as enhancements in software are also changing the way we work. Through automation and the computing power of the cloud, software is speeding up and automating the once tedious process of registering (stitching) and editing captured information.

That’s where ReCap Pro comes in. ReCap Pro has made it easier for our customers to deliver their projects with more accuracy and efficiency, by facilitating the creation of highly accurate virtual models that can be imported and used in Autodesk design products such as AutoCAD, Revit, Infraworks, Civil 3D, Navisworks, and more.

See what our customers are doing with ReCap Pro.

Now, we’re happy to unveil ReCap Photo, our new cloud-based solution tailored for UAV photo capturing processes. ReCap Photo is a desktop app which utilizes Autodesk’s upgraded Photo-to-3D cloud service, The addition of ReCap Photo expands the value of a ReCap Pro subscription with features to support UAV and drone photo capture workflows. Using ReCap Photo you can create photo textured meshes, photo-based point clouds with geolocation, and high-resolution orthographic views with elevation maps.

Features and benefits of ReCap Photo include:

  • A new photogrammetry engine that can process up to 1,000 photos, a 4x improvement from the previous maximum of 250 photos (note: using the cloud service consumes Autodesk Cloud Credits)
  • The ability to set GPCs (Ground Control Points, survey points) in any coordinate system.
  • New functionality to support vertical and nadir photos (photos taken by drones and UAVs at 90 degrees above the site)
  • View your 3D photo-textured mesh
  • View the geolocated orthographic view, zoom in and out, and add measurements, tags, and annotations.
  • Share the project, including its additional metadata (measurements, tags, annotations), with anyone.
  • Merge laser scan point clouds with UAV-based point clouds.

Sign up for ReCap Pro

Installing ReCap Photo (requires subscription to ReCap Pro)

To access ReCap Photo, sign in to your Autodesk Account:

  • Go to the Management tab
  • Select the latest ReCap Pro version and click on “Install Now”
  • Our ReCap Pro installer will then allow you to install both ReCap Pro and ReCap Photo desktop apps.


Recommended companion software

For orthographic views, we recommend Autodesk InfraWorks or AutoCAD Civil 3D to create measurements and overlay drawings or CAD models. Point clouds can be imported into any Autodesk software for design, such as Revit, AutoCAD, Navisworks, Civil 3D, InfraWorks, 3ds Max, and Stingray.

ReCap Pro offers a complete solution, allowing integration of laser scan and UAV scan data for accurate, 3D modeling. You can access cloud-powered reality data across multiple platforms – web, desktop app, and now in the field with your iPad. ReCap Pro integrates with most hardware.

    Hi, I’m trying to upload my photos into ReCap Photo, but when I do so the “waiting in queue” always stops at 1%. What do I do? Is it a problem with the photos, am I importing my photos into the wrong place? Thank you in advance.


    I download recap pro and when I am trying to open the recap pro photo icon i see a message for update,i open the link but i dont know my recaps version to download the correct update.How can I do that?

  13. Avatarlalaly

    i download recap pro and i have only one icon on my desktop and no ReCap Photo™…

  14. Avatarnckreuz

    and when I downloaded recap pro, there was no information for the additional recap photo section.

    1. Mitko VidanovskiMitko Vidanovski

      Hi Nckreuz,
      When you download ReCap it will install two icons on your desktop. One is for point cloud data and handling laser scanners, and the other is ReCap Photo for editing and converting photos into 3D models.

  15. Avatarnckreuz

    where can I download recap pro? I have no clue where to look for it. I am on a test trial, can I not access recap photo if i’m on a trial version? there are no video tutorials for beginners here.

  16. Avatarnckreuz

    ok. now I’ve tried uploading my images to create a model. I redirects me to this page every time. I am not sure where to find recap photo. I have jpg images I am trying to convert. do I upload them to the 360 page? how do I convert them? how do I import them? do I import them back into regular recap? there really aren’t any tutorials for this. I’m a newbie here.

  17. Avatarfkager

    I am trying to figure out Recap Photo. I have made a model with GCP, Easting and Northing seems fine. But the height is wrong. There is a clear height difference in the field but it is not visible in the model. At the GCP the model has the correct height. But the total model looks like an oblique but almost flat surface. Does someone know what could have gone wrong?



    I’m interested in getting a point cloud of an existing building/site, and considered using ReCap to achieve this. Can someone suggest what would be more worthwhile: a) hiring a professional who can do all the work for me including flying the drone and doing the imaging, or b) purchasing a drone and camera, and learning how to use ReCap to create my model? I don’t necessarily plan to be doing much drone flying, although I do think it’s pretty awesome, but I will really need that point cloud for a project. Does anyone know the approximate cost of each? Any input is appreciated.


    1. Mitko VidanovskiMitko Vidanovski

      Hi Andres, good UAV’s with good camera are somewhere in the $1,000 range. You should also ask for professional advice before trying it out by yourself.


    Hi, I’m trying to test my drone data compared to my laser scan data of some stock piles. I have uploaded 460 photos through ReCap Pro and let the software stitch it together, which it did. Now I want to add GCP from Total Station and Laser Scan Points. How do I go back into my project and add GCP and reprocess, letting it adjust accordingly? I see post about an Autodesk Fly service but am unable to find it on the Autodesk site? You should be able to pull photos in and out or add to your project without creating a new project everytime or simply compare your results with and without ground control. Any help is appreciated.


      Hi, you would have to start a new project with the same photos and GCP data in ReCap Photo. There isn’t a way to add GCP data to an already processed project for now. Thank you for the feedback.

    I used to use Autodesk ReCap online, but it mentions that:
    From the 1st of December photo project creation will only be available through the new ReCap Photo™, which offers expanded processing capabilities.

    But I work on a mac… Is there any way I can keep using the online ReCap?
    Please do let me know what are the options available for me.


    1. Mitko VidanovskiMitko Vidanovski

      Hi Celine, I’m afraid the only option available for Mac users would by using Bootcamp and Windows. I see the Photo-to-3D option is still available through the browser so you can take advantage of that until it is completely out.

      Hi there,
      Definitely try ReCap Photo, it should produce the same and if not better results now with the latest engine that has been upgraded.
      Though through ReCap Photo you’ll not have the local processing.

    ReCap Pro needs to have local processing for those of us that do work out in the field. Autodesk Remake was a great piece of software and should live on. I am truly disappointed with Autodesk ReCap.

      Hello Brent,

      To get ReCap Photo desktop application installed, you need to install the latest ReCap installer:
      Base install: Autodesk_ReCap_4202_Multilingual_R3_Win_64bit_dlm.sfx.exe

      The ‘R3’ version is ReCap version + ReCap Photo.

    2. Annie PhanAnnie Phan (Post author)

      Hi Brent, are you still seeing an issue?


    Until a hard drive failure, and loss of Remake, I have been a proponent of Autodesk software since my first install of 3D Studio in 1987. Unfortunately, the fact that ReCap Pro processing must be performed in “the cloud”, and my study is mostly in remote locations without an internet connection, the software is useless for my application. I will be uninstalling my fresh install of ReCap and finding alternatives offered by other vendors because without the ability to process on a local machine, my research in the efficacy of incorporating 3D documentation in archaeological settings can no longer proceed.

      We understand that this will impact some folks like yourself while we hope the new cloud solutions will work for most. Please don’t hesitate to reach us at to voice your concern or if there’s anything we can assist you with.

    2. Avatarcarowley2PKM6

      I could not agree more. Sorry but for those of us that work with hardware and software Annie cloud computing is not a solution for remote locations where cell phone service is non exisiting. To visit these locations than to leave to head hours away to possibly get a signal, wifi, or some sort of internet access and then to wait in que than finally the model finishes to see the object not coming out successfully is deter-mental to those of us that work out in the field. Please bring back local processing. Those of us who spent the money to meet recommended hardware specifications of Autodesk Remake to speed up the workflow and to work out in the field. Than the cost of cloud credits is absurd please I will pay a yearly fee for local processing.

    I think i recall seeing something about being able to use regular digital photos (Cell phone or digital camera) instead of UAV images to create content as well. Is this possible still?

    How do you relate the coordinate system to photos?
    This is also a questions for drone images that might not be GEO located by the drone.

    Do you need targets or can you select points common between the pictures themselves?

    Does the UAV need to have Geolocation navagation or can a basic one with a camera mount work.
    I have a drone that will take photos or video from the remote, its not self navigating or first person though.

    1. Mitko VidanovskiMitko Vidanovski

      Hi there, thank you for asking.
      In general yes to all of your questions 🙂
      ReCap can work with any type of rectangular camera.
      Either if you are using UAV’s or ground images you can add coordinates on any ReCap Photo project before or after submitting for processing.
      These control points can be anything you see that has overlap on the other images, basically everything is a “target”
      Basic UAV’s work too. What ReCap cares is just the quality of the photographs.

  32. AvatarelantrisQN6CP

    When I am on it tells me to use the RECAP PHOTO program which will replace the old version. I’ve got the newest Recap Pro version on my computer. Creating a new project from photos brings me to instead of using the actual program. So my question is : Are you serious ?

    1. Annie PhanAnnie Phan (Post author)

      Thank you, we’re taking a look at the flow you described to fix the experience. Were you able to download the ReCap Photo app and open ReCap Photo directly? To access ReCap Photo, you would go to and re-install the latest version of ReCap Pro (even if you’re already on the latest). Through this installation process. you’ll have the option to also install ReCap Photo.

    I only have Linux & MacOS desktops & Android phone/tablet. It seems this new version is only for the platforms I don’t use.

Otherwise, you can sign up here for a 30 day trial of ReCap Pro, and then follow the same installation process to get ReCap Photo. Let us know if you experience any issues.


    So Recap Photo is cloud based prosessing only? There is no desktop version? I cant believe the jungle of broken links and lack of information about your products. And the credit thing?! It still cost credits even when you bought recap pro and photo?

    I have a problem with generating a photo on a 3d object using ReCap Photo. A few days ago I generated the first 3D object from a set of 200 photos – everything was OK. I have now set up a set of 700 photos, but ReCap Photo does not run the process (inform me of the limit of 300 pictures). I have subscribed to ReCap Pro and 95 credits in the cloud. I think I did everything to start the process. I have recently installed the latest ReCap and ReCap Photo programs.

    What else can I do ?


    1. Mitko VidanovskiMitko Vidanovski

      Hi Pawel,
      The limit for processing “Objects” is 300 photos (usually there is no need for more pictures than this for this type of reconstructions), but if you have an Aerial project the limit for that is 1,000 photos. Please select that option instead and give it a try. Thank you for using ReCap!

    I too would like to know if Recap Photo is going to receive educational benefits. Last week I stood in front of a group of students espousing the benefits of Remake for photogrammetry only to open the program and have it say that it has been moved to Recap photo and upon installing Recap photo find that apparently the educational benefits have been stripped from this product. Please tell us what your intentions are with this product so that I know whether to pursue another photogrammetry platform for next week’s class.

      Hi Arin, Remake is still available to current EDU account holders for the time being. We will offer an EDU version of ReCap Photo/Recap Pro in late October or early November. At that point, the photo processing will be limited to 100 photos.

      Unfortunately, EDU licenses are not set up to allow the purchasing additional cloud credits. In order to fully access the photo processing capabilities of ReCap Photo (processing up to 300 object photos or 1,000 UAV/drone photos), you would need to sign up for the 30-day free trial of ReCap Pro or a paid month or annual subscription. We are sorry if these options do not serve your needs.

  42. Avatarben_britton

    seems like when Recap got integrated into Recap, the following happened:
    to use it, a user must install Recap Pro, an educational license will receive a one-year subscription.
    so now Recap spawns as a standalone sub-application that must be started inside Recap Pro. it opens in its own window as a separate app (Recap Photos).

    please note: this sub-application (Recap Photo) does not give educational licenses a one-year license, just 30 day trial.
    so now we in academia, on zero budghets for our most advanced, who are interested in integration of the full Autodesk suite of tools, must hope that you
    the provision of the one-year educational license for Remake, as it is integrated in its current form.
    please re-read the above before you think you know what i mean.

    Hello Annie Phan and Mitko Vidanovski, very pleased. I do a master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering at FEI, a renowned university in Brazil where the goal is to show the productivity of 3D scanning based on the concept of Recap photos, and the cloud system of the A360, so I have been experimenting to show the efficacy of the method, I started my work with Remake, where I have many quotes from it and also from autodesk. However, on Friday at the open I was directed to the Recap fotos, which requests credits in the cloud, factor that makes the experiments unfeasible, in total there are 9, remembering that I need numerous tests for this. How can you help me?
    If you need documents related to the course to college as well as recognition of my adviser can send you via email. Thanks in advance and congratulate the whole team.
    I am very worried because the work is already qualified leaving only the last section, the experiments.

      1 to 300 photos will use 12 cloud credits.
      301 to 700 photos will use 30 cloud credits.
      701 to 1,000 photos will use 55 cloud credits.
      1 cloud credit = $1 USD. More information about Autodesk cloud credits can be found here:

    With Autodesk-Remake it was possible to upload jpeg images of small objects which were captured by a DSLR camera. It did a really good job of making 3D models using images. Does Recap Photo have the same functionality? Or does it accept only the specific GPCs format that is mentioned in the article ?

      Hi @bpoojary,
      GCP is just one addition to the new improvements to ReCap Photo that is different from ReMake. You can still continue to create projects by simply adding your images without the need to include GCP points if not necessery.

      Hi, nerotbf69 .
      Always, I see your wonderful work at Sketchfab.
      You are also a Remake lover. What do you think of being integrated into Recap?
      Do not you feel uneasy?

      Please download the latest ReCap installer again. It has been updated to have ReCap Photo. If you already have the latest version of ReCap, then only ReCap Photo will be installed when running the new installer.

    Other than the differences between the Recap versions, what is the difference between Recap Photo and Remake? It looks to have the same tools as Remake (even the same interface for much of it).

    I have and use Remake quite a bit, but was wondering if there are any additional features in Recap Photo

    1. Avatarstevej.3d

      can answer my own question, Recap photo is Remake with a few extra features aimed at drone footage and the ability to work in surveyed coordinate systems, as well as some other stuff, so all good things.

      The Remake page says the product can be used through the end of my contract, which is fine, Recap Photo is about the same price.

      But the biggest problem I see is that Recap Photo explicitly states you can’t do local processing of photos, you have to use the cloud service with purchased credits. Why is this the case? There should definitely be the option for local processing, I don’t feel like paying for a service that the computer I have right in front of me will do for free.

    Hi, can you clarify what’s the difference between Recap, Recap Pro and Recap Photo?

      Hi Patric, sure thing. ReCap is for processing point cloud data mainly coming from 3D laser scanners and ReCap Photo is for working with mesh data and for tuning photographs into 3D models.
      More in detail can be seen on this comparison chart on the ReCap product page:


    No trial version? I paid for 2017 and it not much help…
    I would like to compare this new one with the 2017; is this possible?

      Hi Angel,
      Sure, the new ReCap Photo version should give you 30-days free trial period.
      You can download it from the ReCap product page in here:
