I think there may be a bug since I'm trying to get the count of points in a .las file and I'm getting this error.

    points = point_cloud.points #collection of points
AttributeError: 'Metashape.Metashape.PointCloud' object has no attribute 'points'

that is what It is printed,

and poitn cloud is defined as 

point_cloud = chunk.point_cloud #current cloud

and is properly read since I get the logs on screen.

I checked the forums and the code seems corrrect, I checked python reference just in case this had changed, yet seems correct

"class PointCloud.Points
Collection of 3D points in the point cloud"

Could you please check?

version 2.01 build 16069

Hello Paulov,

If you need to get the number of tie points, then use:
Code: [Select]

To get the number of points in the dense cloud the following clumsy command can be used:
Code: [Select]
int(str(chunk.point_cloud).split("'")[1].split(" ")[0])
Note that in the version 1.8 tie points could be accessed via chunk.point_cloud and dense cloud - via chunk.dense_cloud, whereas in the version 2.0 tie points have been renamed to chunk.tie_points and dense cloud to chunk.point_cloud. So keep that in mind, when adapting old version scripts for your needs.
