Export Lidar data as image

Is there a way to export LiDAR data as a high resolution Image? I added RGB values from a SUAS image to Lidar points to have a "vegetation background". I would like to export this as an ECW or Tiff image to use as a background in another application.

I created a raster on this data and tried to export that way but it did not give me the results I was looking for. Also the "capture screen contents to image" did not give me the resolution I need.

    I would suggest using the Create Elevation Grid option on the Lidar and choose to grid the Color field. The options below should work:

    You might want to increase the No Data distance so larger gaps are filled, but I wouldn't go too large with color gap filling as you would just get smudges of color.

    You can then export the resulting image to a raster layer.

    Thanks,
