Applying a transformation is primarily done for compatibility with other processing and writers that cannot support the transformation natively. For example, the LAS reader produces Int32 coordinates with a scale and offset. However, the POINTCLOUDXYZ writer cannot support component scale/offsets, so the transformation will be applied. The resulting coordinates will be Real64 with no transformation. Note that processing and writers that cannot support transformations will apply them automatically, but this transformer can be used to manually apply the transformation if desired.
All input features must have point cloud geometry.
The updated features are output through this port.
Whether to apply a transformation matrix. The resulting point cloud will have x, y, and z components that are of type Real64, with no scale/offset, and no transformation matrix. If the point cloud does not have a transformation matrix, the point cloud will not be modified.
The list of components for which to apply the scale/offset. The resulting components will be Real64 with no scale/offset. If a named component does not have a scale/offset, it will not be modified.
Editing Transformer Parameters
Using a set of menu options, transformer parameters can be assigned by referencing other elements in the workspace. More advanced functions, such as an advanced editor and an arithmetic editor, are also available in some transformers. To access a menu of these options, click beside the applicable parameter. For more information, see Transformer Parameter Menu Options.
