Pointcloud Mode

Select from two different pointcloud modes: “Default”: New mode supporting large RGB pointclouds, “Spheres”: Old mode using spheres to represent points. Note: Not all pointclouds can be converted to “Sphere” mode. Valid pointclouds must have fewer than 5000 unique colours and fewer than 50,000 points.
