My grayscale point cloud is imported like a all Black point cloud into AC23 and AC22.
Into Archicad :
CloudCompare allow me to show these shades of grey by the same e57 file.
Into CloudCompare :
Is there a solution to keep the difference shade of grey ?
I've turned off the 2D and 3D Antialiasing in the Options - Work Environment - Advanced Redraw Options
I've tried with :
- a Macbook pro 2011 i7
- a iMac 2013 i5 with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 775M 2048 Mo
- a Macbook pro 2018 i7
Am I the only one who wants to use Archicad to model from a point cloud ?
Should I conclude that since Archicad 19 it is possible to import point clouds but that this possibility is not operational more than 4 years later ?
Thank you for reporting the issue here and I am sorry about the experience!
Unfortunately, ARCHICAD is able to process color information only if they are RGB based. If the representation is "Scalar field" and not RGB color-based, the point cloud will be shown as black in ARCHICAD.
As you already found out, using CloudCompare to convert it to RGB will fix this issue. For those who are interested in it, you can open the file using CloudCompare, then go to Edit > Scalar fields > Convert to RGB.
Once again, I would like to thank you on behalf of us in GRAPHISOFT HQ Customer Support Services for your immense contribution and help on the forums!
