I'm wondering if there is a trick to adjusting the brightness of my point clouds in Max's viewports without also effecting any model model geometry in my scene?
The RGB color in our point clouds often comes into Max very dark. This can be corrected by adjusting the gamma setting found in the Preferences/Gamma and LUT tab. This works great if the scene consists only of point cloud data, but when you hybridize your project with other traditional models, those models have a very light and "washed out" appearance. This effects both the viewports and rendered images if the gamma value approaches, or goes above, about 2.
Is there a way to have my cake and eat it too?
If the solution doesn't exist in Max or C2M, perhaps there's a workaround?
Typically, our cloud data is exported as a .pts file from Cyclone or Faro Scene before importing with C2M. Might there be a tool out there that will reprocess the .pts file and adjust the RGB values to bump up the brightness before its imported into C2M?
