The Cloud Filter module is used for decreasing the amount of noise generated by the Dense Cloud module. It removes redundant information while preserving geometric detail. It is also responsible for generating metadata required by the subsequent processing stages of the 3D workflow, especially the 3D Mesh. The filtered clouds contain a substantially lower amount of points, often times less than 20% of the original dense clouds while still representing the captured object with high detail and sharp edges. The reduced number of points also leads to much smaller and more manageable file sizes.
