I'm currently trying to build Digital Surface Model (DSM) with Pleiades Tri-Stereo Images (pushbroom sensor). I don't find on the documentation any help to perform this task.
I add on a photogrammetry projet my images with the DIM files, give the interior/exterior orientation and compute Automatic Point Measurement (APM). After that, I did the Block Triangulation and then, I have to generate now the DSM.
How to perform this ?
With Tridicon Semi-Global Matching (SGM), I generate the tiles (to get the status Ready), and then, I run the SGM tool with "Run Now" button. But after that, no DSM is added on the photogrammetric project. Why ? Isn't this tool able to generate a DSM ?
Which other module can I used ? Attached is the licences I've got on Imagine.
Thank's in advance for your help.

A new folder named SGM is created in the same folder where teh block file is saved. Inside the SGM folder, you will have DSM in LAS (point cloud) formats. LAS files are not automatically added back to the block file. Y

Thank's for your answer,
I just check the directory, but there is no las file, there is only tif, txt, gori, aux, bls and bcf files on the SGM directory

Do you have the latest ERDAS IMAGINE 2018 Update 1 installed - https://download.hexagongeospatial.com/downloads/imagine/erdas-imagine-2018-update-1

Thank's for your answer
I did the update but there is no change. Still no las on the folder after running SGM.
By the way, if I try to use Automatic Terrain Extraction (ATE), an error message about licence occur. But I have the ATE and photogrammetry licence.

Ok, so after few hours of runs,
here is the message that can be found on the imagine_log file :

It appear that there is a license issue, but I don't understand why, because we pay for the license...
