Dense point cloud attributes
« on: July 15, 2022, 04:50:21 AM »
Hello Agisoft support,
chunk.point_cloud  (sparse point cloud) appears an easy class to interact with.
For example, I can iterate with point in "chunk.point_cloud.points" and then get various attributes for each point. Some of those attributes are the track_id, coord, and cov.

I did not find in the Metashape python API manual if I could iterate through all the points in the dense_cloud to get point attributes: point_id,  and confidence for example. 
Is there a way to iterate through all the dense cloud points to extract point attributes?

Hello 3DWinter,

At the moment there's no access to the dense cloud points via API.

The only option is to export the point cloud in some convenient text format and read it in order to extract the required information.
