For the record, here it is.

Hello Ben,

The PCL plugin for ParaView has not been updated for a while, hence it does
not compile out-of-the-box with recent ParaView.
Kitware could be hired to update the plugin, if you wish.

On the other hand, we internally used an adapted version for another
ParaView-based project named VeloView.
It's based on ParaView 5.1.2 (Qt 4.8.6), and PCL 1.7.1 , you can find the
win64 plugin+installer here
<https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B3wo0Ce-gua6eG5nWDZ4amFVQjQ> (VeloView
binaries are stripped)
Note that:
- The installer shows off as "VeloView" installer
- You need to manually launch the paraview binary from <install_dir>
- Then you can load the PCL plugin which is in the same zip.
- This paraview binary has a rendering bug causing the +2 columns of
"Alphabetical Order" Filter not to show. Please use CTRL+SPACE to find pcl
related filters.

If you need more information, just contact me.

Please excuse the basic nature of this... I would like a Windows build of
ParaView with the PCL plugin for point cloud processing. Do I need to
compile from source to do this, or is there already a binary with this
plugin included?
