The application of film frames in close range photogrammetry has a strong justification. The process of generating them allows improvement in reliability and simplifies the technology. The main aim of this technique is to determine three dimensional shapes of objects. The paper presents conditions for reconstructing the relative orientation, based on tie points in a short sequence of film frames. Both the selection of points and selection of the images is important. In the research were used parts of a film recorded along a simple trajectory. The analysis takes also advantage of signalized test field reference points, with known coordinates. Interior orientation (IO) of images taken by a single camera has been applied. The IO parameters had been determined in a previous project, and assumed as constant. A proposal for improvement in searching the corresponding tie points is also presented. The experiments are an important part of the proposed technology which automates the process of creation the three-dimensional model of objects, making use of film image sequences.
