Hi all,
Could you please let me know how to get the current view point of a point cloud which is displayed using "pcshow" command? Basically, I want to rotate a point cloud manually to get the best view and duplicated the same view point in multiple point clouds. I have tried using below solution but no luck.
Cheers.

pcshow() returns an Axes object, which you can retrieve the View property of to get the AZ, EL pair, or you can call view() with no argument to get the transformation matrix.

Many thanks Walter. I tired by extracting az,el but it doesn't duplicate the manually rotated view. Instead it gives something different. Therefore, could you please let me know how to rotate using the transformation matrix. Cheers.

At the moment I do not know how to take the transformation matrix returned by view() with no parameters and use it in a different axes.
