Using Lidar Files

Hello all and thanks for any help. I just had a flight with lidar data and would like to ask for any tips for a reliable and workable workflow. I would like to be able to load the lidar point cloud directly into the environment of the traditional pix4d project.

Thanks for any information

Let me know if you have any further questions,
