New version of point cloud handling software sees the light of day


The QuickStitch software allows you to work with all types of XYZ data from sensors used both below and above the water surface. With the release of version 4.1.4, the list of features now also includes the possibility of working in multiple 3D views, a new noise removal filter, and a new shading technique. 


Get a comprehensive overview of your data by combining multiple 3D views


QuickStitch 4.1.4 brings the possibility of working with not just one, but multiple 3D views at the same time. This allows you to combine various different views of the same XYZ data for a more comprehensive overview, working with settings of your choice.

Combat noise with new noise removal filter


A new noise removal filter allows for a more efficient workflow when cleaning your data. The filter makes it possible to remove sparse and single points. This adds to a number of other cleaning features, including cleaning by intensity and fast point cloud eraser.

New shading technique: Eye-dome lighting

QuickStitch 4.1.4 includes a new shading technique called EDL (Eye-dome lighting).
When applying realistic light to an object (that is, placing the source of light so it points to the object at a certain angle) the shades generated will bring out details, but only from one side. Consequently, realistic light is not optimal when you are looking to highlight as many details as possible.

EDL brings out the shades from all sides at the same time. This allows you to see every detail of the entire point cloud, regardless from which angle you view it.
