This addon for playing large sequences of point cloud PLY files. This converts the point clouds to PNGs and plays them back using shaders to read the point cloud data off of tif files. Its sort of utilizing image compresion for point cloud compression. This tool was created while I was an assitant to Nica Ross on their work "Gender Nonconforming Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Motion Capture" you can see some more about what I worked on here: http://charstiles.com/gender-nonconforming-brazilian-jiu-jitsu-motion-capture/
Download this and drop it into
openFrameworks/addons/ folder. Your point clouds go into the data folder in your project.
First you call
plySeqObject.writePointCloudsAsImages() Which will open up a file browser prompt that will direct you to point it to a folder of ascii point clouds.
Then you call
plySeqObject.setup() to prepare the images to be drawn as point clouds
Then in your draw loop call
OF 10 and 11
This is in development. It only works on ascii ply point clouds. This is a very lossy process.
Currently writing tests.
