RGB Colors (point cloud visualiser)

Anyone famiiar with getting the RGB colors of scandata over?
I manage to get them in the right spot.
I think colors are not stored in the .pts files (using CloudCompare)
Documentation suggests otherwise. How to het colors?

Cloudcompare prep

pts format, they are gone?

    Solved !
    Using version 2.0 , ply from CloudCompare

  • Nice ! Are you overlaying the PC over BlenderGIS data ?

  • Hi, just being curious. How big is your Point Cloud? I wanted to manage a Point Cloud of around 5Gb, and it was not manageable.

    I found with a mid grade computer that around 100M points was manageable (around 1.5 Gb without color). Upwards of 100M it became very laggy or even crashed due to not enough RAM. I advise you to use the dynamic clipping feature that lets you display only a part of the PC, or to dynamically decimate the PC on import

    Looking at the first screenshot this PC seems to have only 3M points

    which would be around 100 Mb of data

    Yes. BlenderGIS + AHN addon + Pointcloud visualiser
    Geotiles.nl subdevides pc data to around 300 mb. That's about manageble.
    I want to check and verify if coordinates are done right. I have doubts.
    But for now... it makes nice pictures ;)
