ArcGIS Pro, 3.2.2, advanced license, NVIDIA T1000 8GB. I'm using the tutorial and sample data at https://doc.arcgis.com/en/imagery/workflows/tutorials/create-drone-imagery-products-ortho-mapping.ht...

I get a warning when creating the raster dataset "W > 2024-04-11T12:25:12.606: Warning: Cannot compute flight height from input parameters. Use default value: 1.000 m. [YUN_0040]".

Then when I try to run the block adjust, I get ERROR 999999

I > 2024-04-11T12:26:18.669: Computing initial tie points...
E > ERROR 999999: Something unexpected caused the tool to fail. Contact Esri Technical Support (http://esriurl.com/support) to Report a Bug, and refer to the error help for potential solutions or workarounds.
E > Failed to extract feature points.
E > Parallel processing job timed out
E > Failed to execute (ComputeCameraModel).

Any suggestions?  I've tried switching GPUs in Windows Graphics settings, setting Processor Type to CPU, changing the GPS accuracy, disabling the camera calibration, no change, always fails the block adjust after about 3 minutes.

Hi @criticalareas 

Does your machine meet the specification requirements for ArcGIS Pro 3.2.x, Can you run the system requirements checker to confirm:

ArcGIS Pro 3.2 system requirements

I would encourage you to leave feedback on the topic (there is a link at the bottom) to note to the authors that there is an issue with the workflow and confirm are there any other parameters or settings/specifications you may need to complete this tutorial.

Yes, the machine passes the recommended specs according to that tool... it's a fairly recent Dell Precision 3660. I'll leave feedback on the tutorial, but I haven't gotten Pro to process drone imagery successfully in quite some time. I'm mostly using ODM, but wanted to compare the results I could get in AGP.
