3D Flythrough Question

 I uploaded a 3D pointcloud (LAZ) file. Next I created a line on the 2D representation that is shown right after you upload a 3D pointcloud. This line I created would be used for a 3D flythrough track. The only problem that I'm having is the line is snapped to 0 meters above sea level (actual zero) and my 3D point cloud is 'higher' at 600m+. 
 How do I snap the line to my 3D point cloud instead of it 'falling through' and going to zero elevation? 

Could anyone please point me in the right direction?? I'll keep trying but so far I have had no luck.

    Hi Nimbus,

    There are a number of ways to go here. The easiest way would be to add an attribute named ELEVATION and set the value to the desired elevation. You can also edit the vertices and add per-vertex elevation values. Or, when defining the fly-through path properties, you can select an elevation mode of Absolute and specify an altitude. That will not change the elevation of the line, but the fly-through "cam" will be at that altitude.
