Point Clouds are a special object type that is a container for points in 3D space. They can be used to represent 3D scans and in the future can represent particles. Each point can store data in a set of Attributes.
The Attributes panel contains different point cloud characteristics such as the position and size of points.
Use the List View to manage attributes.
The position of the point in 3D space.
The radius of each point.
The color of each point.
- Particle ID
A unique identifier given to each particle.
The speed and direction that the particle is traveling.
- Custom Attributes
Custom attribute can be given to particles to hold a custom characteristic.
The name of the attribute.
- Data Type
The type of data to store in the attribute.
Floating point value
3D vector with floating point values
- Float Color
RGBA color with floating point precision
- Byte Color
RGBA color with 8-bit precision
The type of element the attribute is stored in. Currently, attributes can only be stored per Point.
