Render Point Clouds from Reconstruction or Lidar Points with Vertex Colors in Cinema 4D.

The Vertex Color tag allows Cinema 4D to display colored points within the interface, but there’s no native way to render those points. In this video, you’ll learn how to use a custom Python Effector to color clones based on a Vertex Color tag. With this technique, you can easily render point clouds from Scene Reconstruction or Lidar data and control their appearance using MoGraph effectors.
