Display all points

MouseOK    Ribbon: Point Clouds Settings >  Switch point cloud display tree

MouseOK    Menu: Point Clouds Settings >  Display all points


Turn on / off the display of all points in the cloud. Disabled by default, so the number of points displayed on the screen depends on the performance of the PC’s graphics system.

Enabling this mode only affects the speed of displaying clouds and navigation in the workspace. This mode does not affect the speed of clouds processing by commands of stitching (registration), classification, etc. To speed up cloud processing operations, make it sparse with the Thinning the Point Cloud command, which reduces not the displayed, but the actual number of points in cloud. It is also possible to reduce the number of cloud points that get into the document during the import operation by checking the Spacing box and specifying the sequence number of imported points.
