writers.pcd

The PCD Writer supports writing to Point Cloud Data (PCD) formatted files, which are used by the Point Cloud Library (PCL).

By default, compression is not enabled, and the PCD writer will output ASCII formatted data. When compression is enabled, the output is PCD’s binary-compressed format.

Note

The PCD Writer requires linkage of the PCL library.
