In recoverPose(...) src code, there's this snippet.

// Do the cheirality check.
// Notice here a threshold dist is used to filter
// out far away points (i.e. infinite points) since
// there depth may vary between postive and negtive.
double dist = 50.0;

And this threshold is used in:

mask1 = (Q.row(2) < dist) & mask1;
Q = P1 * Q;
mask1 = (Q.row(2) > 0) & mask1;
mask1 = (Q.row(2) < dist) & mask1;

....

mask2 = (Q.row(2) < dist) & mask2;
Q = P2 * Q;
mask2 = (Q.row(2) > 0) & mask2;
mask2 = (Q.row(2) < dist) & mask2;

...

mask3 = (Q.row(2) < dist) & mask3;
Q = P3 * Q;
mask3 = (Q.row(2) > 0) & mask3;
mask3 = (Q.row(2) < dist) & mask3;

...

mask4 = (Q.row(2) < dist) & mask4;
Q = P4 * Q;
mask4 = (Q.row(2) > 0) & mask4;
mask4 = (Q.row(2) < dist) & mask4;

My question is, why was this threshold put equal to 50 specifically ? If it's a parameter, why isn't it passed as an argument to the function ???

Thanks in Advance
