Decimate (Dense) Point Cloud
« on: October 19, 2017, 07:59:38 PM »
Is there anyway to decimate the densecloud in Photoscan itself prior to export, or is one dependent on other software to do this? I understand an alternative workaround would be to generate the Densecloud at a lower quality/ resolution, but I'd prefer to generate and keep the higher quality cloud, then export a decimated version to allow for importing into our client's software.

I found a similar question was posted two years ago, it was then stated this was not (yet) possible within Photoscan. I am curious to find out if things have changed!

Hi BovvdMeij,

Subsampling of dense point clouds is still not possible within PhotoScan. It needs to be done with other software packages, such CloudCompare.

One of my previous posts might have some helpful information for you:
