Point cloud color from textured mesh


(Michal Zurawski) #1

Question how to convert colored PC to mesh was asked thousands of times. What about using mesh as a source of color?

I would like to publish the point cloud. The point cloud was, created from cameras with different exposures. After that, I did meshing and selected proper cameras for texturing. So the mesh is textured how it should be. Is there any way to bake color from texture or vertex to point cloud?

Hi @michal_zurawski, how about this?

Use Blender to bake texture colours to your mesh:

Use CloudCompare to convert coloured mesh vertices to point cloud:

Both Blender and CloudCompare are free, but other people may have other workflows that only use a single piece of software.
