I am georeferencing drone images with QGIS, and the transformation method that gives the best results is the projective one.

As I have many images, I would like to write a gdal script to automate the process.

However, when I hit the "generate GDAL script" button, I get the following error:

GDAL scripting is not supported for projective transformation.

Is it gdalwarp which doesn't support projective transformation, or is QGIS georeferencer that doesn't implement it?


Looks like it.

Based on the source code:


GDAL is only used for the three polynomial transformations and the thin plate spline.
