Dense point cloudvisualization issue (?)
« on: June 17, 2016, 03:09:17 PM »
Hi all

im having a problem after the creation of the dense point cloud.
I deleted some points manually from the dense point cloud in order to export only a part of it.
After closing the software i didnt save it on purpose assuming i could recover all points after.

However after re-opening again the original file, although the number of points is the original count, i cannot see the deleted one.

Is it a visualization issue? or if i delete points from the dense point cloud they are gone forever?

thanks for helping!

Hello etnad,

If you are working with the project saved in PSX format, the dense cloud is kept on the disk and edits are applied to it instantly, so if you have deleted the points, they would be marked as "deleted" in the project data even if you haven't undone the operation and haven't saved the project.

However, you can restore all the deleted points from the dense cloud using the corresponding option in the chunk's context menu (Workspace pane). Also you can remove the deleted points forever, that will reduce the space required for the project data.

Hello etnad,

Just right-click on the chunk's label in the Workspace pane.

Oh, I see what you mean, it should be in the context menu after you click on the dense cloud line in the chunk contents, sorry for the confusion.
