Importing point clouds into PlayCanvas

Hi. Can I import a point cloud into playcanvas project? Any advice on how to do it?

If each point is represented by the same mesh (like a sphere or box), you can use hardware instancing to render it:

Thank you for answer. I have one more.
Can I use Potree in playcanvas?

No, potree is a renderer as well. You may be able to port it so it renders using PlayCanvas instead though if you are looking for the data parsing/loader.

Ok. Thanks

We have engine example here which does load point cloud using .ply and .drc (draco compressed) format. Read more there about why it’s not released yet - mostly IE11 compatibility.

Thanks for information.

Is there an example scene that can be forked with this?
