This command sets the maximum amount of points shown on screen per point cloud. Since a screen only contains a few million pixels, it makes no sense to display more points at a given moment. Lowering this value results in displaying less detail but faster response.
This does not mean that the actual point cloud cannot contain more points!! That latest number can be typically several hundred millions and even larger, and is not affected by this setting.
Accessing the Command
