Adjust the lighting associated with your points.
- I rarely change the lighting settings,…because usually the lighting for our point cloud…is good enough the way that it is.…But you can change the lighting settings,…and you can find those underneath the display settings,…lighting settings, and then in the drop down,…there are three different options.…And underneath each one of those options,…there are multiple more options.…Let's first go to the Lighting Sides.…The first option there is single.…If we select on single, we'll notice how…this point cloud adjusts just a little bit.…
Now, single illuminates the points…when the point normals are…facing a directional lighting source.…Double means it illuminates the points from two sides.…It made it a little bit brighter…because it's now illuminating two sides of the point.…None, none means that it doesn't…automatically calculate lighting.…What it does is that it ignores the lighting…and then colors the points based…on the actual colors of the scan.…That's pretty much what you're seeing…when you're there in real life,…
