Hi everyone, I'm new to 3d geometric morphometrics, so this will be a very basic question to which there is probably a simple answer. I'm trying to place landmarks on meshes containing between 120,000 and 150,000 vertices using the digit.fixed function in geomorph. However, I'm finding it nearly impossible to select the desired vertex with the cursor. Rather, the point lands somewhere else deeper in the mesh, which is very frustrating. I've fiddled with ptsize, which helps a little when increased, but nothing seems to work without a lot of clicking around. Does anyone have any idea what's going on and if its possible to select the faces with this function (the function description makes this seem unlikely)? Alternatively, does anyone have any suggestions on how to best export .ply files from Meshlab that work best with geomorph and rgl? I've just been simplifying my hyper complex meshs with quadratic decimation and then exporting the ply. Should I be doing something in Meshlab that will make it easier to select vertices in R? Also, I realize that it the documentation for geomorph uses a mesh with less than 30,000 vertices, but I lose most of the useful information when I drop below 120k.
