Why binary_compressed is not supported in PCDLoader?

It is noted in the documentation, not well-elaborated, and I can not even find any related-threads discussing why binary_compressed is not supported in PCD loader.

I appreciate it if anyone who knows the reason gives feedback. Thanks a lot.

Probably because nobody had time or the requirement to implement this feature so far.

Can you share a compressed binary PCD file that could be used for testing/development?

It seems there is a custom node version of PCDLoader that can already handle those files: https://gitlab.com/taketwo/three-pcd-loader/blob/master/pcd-loader.js

Some progress:

Okay, the loader should be able to handle binary compressed files with the next release R110 :+1:


@Mugen87 Thanks for your explanation and the quick PR.
