render (Trigger)
Num Points (Number:integer )

set a limit to the number of points that will be rendered - "0" is no limit

Axis index (Number:integer ) XYZ  XY 

XYZ or XY (2d) cloud mode

Texture (Object:texture)

RGB texture input where each pixels color value assigns a points position in 3D space

Point Size (Object:texture)

mono color texture input to change each points size

Normalize (Number:boolean )

center the pointcloud

Remove Point at 0 (Number:boolean )
Ignore Alpha 0 (Number:boolean )


Trigger (Trigger)
Total Points (Number)
