Bringing a dense cloud back into photoscan
« on: December 02, 2017, 10:12:57 AM »
Hi,
The workflow I am using involves doing the alignment with Photoscan, then exporting as a bundler.out format, and using other software to generate the dense cloud and to clean up that dense cloud.  This provides me with a really nice clean dense cloud.
My question is, is there a way to bring that clean dense cloud back into Photoscan in order to mesh and texture in Photoscan?
Many thanks!

Hello jinjamu,

Dense point cloud import is supported in the version 1.4.0 pre-release. Currently supported formats LAS, LAZ, PTS, PLY, OBJ.

Thanks Alexey
I need the process to work as though the imported dense cloud is generated from the point cloud in photoscan, so there needs to be a "connection" (sorry, don't know the right words!) with the original photographs, to be able to texture the generated mesh.
Before I start to test, is there anything in particular to look out for?
