Studio Clouds edits point clouds for use in 3ds Max and Maya and displays with game engine speed. Everyone is being tight-lipped about the deal.

The small team, closely related to ongoing research at technical universities in Delft, Netherlands and Ghent, Belgium, has previously released Studio Clouds, an innovative 3D laser point cloud editing technology that offers plug-ins for Autodesk’s 3ds Max and Maya modelers, and uses a proprietary game engine for fast manipulation of point cloud data.

Studio Clouds is a display and editing tool for 3D laser scan and photogrammetry data. (Source: VizWorld)
