Global Mapper v24.1

Rectify lidar point cloud

I am a long time Global Mapper user but new to Version 17.
We are looking at alternatives for rectifying point clouds created with drone based photogrammetry.

I am somehow led to believe that GM17 should allow me to "rectify"  or "correct" the point cloud in a process similar to image rectification?.
I can't seem to find this functionality? Does it exist?

    Select your point cloud in the Overlay Control Center, the right-click and choose RECTIFY - Modify Layer Position/Projection.

    The Raster Processing webinar contains information about how to rectify data.  The webinar deals with raster data, but the concepts are the same for a point cloud.  You can get related information from the help file by clicking on the Index tab and typing in "Rectify".
