Has anyone worked with point cloud data from a LIDAR scan? Just wondering how to get it into lightwave. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What file extension is it saved in now?

Simple XYZ etc. can often quickly be turned into something to play with via AccuTrans 3D.

Yeah, I use Globalmapper to deal with this kind of data. Accutrans does have some issues with the variants of XYZ and other GIS formats. Also has problems dealing with huge databases.
