PCPainter and Source ID

Can you confirm if it is by design that the PCPainter process overwrites the SourceID (Laser#) field? If so, is there a way we can enter a feature request to preserve it somehow either in another field or by script to pull out and reapply after colorization?

Thanks

I think what is done now is that PSID is replaced with the image number. It looks like nobody really needs it, so we can ask to keep the original laser number in that field

That would be great. We use it for every delivery to thin the ground. Spatial thining is not a uniform as just culling lasers and just exporting a single laser for ground keeps the cloud small and clean and allows us to leave the above ground features more dense.
