What is a recommended Photogrammaetry software for creating depth images?

Hey Guys!

I have mono-camera images from a drone of a small area. And I have the exact Pose (through motion capture) of the drone during that flight. And now I want to generate a depth image for every image, what software can you recommend?
My Input:
Mono Images + Pose
Output:
Depth Images

You could try using Agisoft Metashape. With that software you may import mono images for 3D point cloud reconstruction. The first step would be aligning the photos, but instead you have an option to import an xml file of camera positions and orientations. Once you have the point cloud then there must be a way to programmatically rasterize a photo from each camera position with a greyscale color based on the “camera z” coordinate.

Hi @Gian.Alessio - this forum thread suggests exporting depth maps is possible via Agisoft Metashape, although a bit of a hack: https://www.agisoft.com/forum/index.php?topic=12549.0

I believe it is also possible using Reconsruction > Export > Depth & Masks in https://capturingreality.com/
