Scripting option for new feature in GlobalMapper 12 - save color values from raster-

I saw a very nice new feature in Global Mapper 12 that allows when exporting a Vector Format to save color values from loaded raster files. I kept trying to find it as a scripting parameter for exporting a vector format LIDAR LAS. I have like 600 *.las files (for now) and I need to load each LAS file with it's correspondent images and then export the LAS with colors from the raster images.

Is this option available as a script command when exporting vector format LAS? Or will it be available in the future?

Thank you!

    There's not a way in v12, but I just added support for an INC_COLOR=YES parameter for the EXPORT_VECTOR script command in the latest v13 build. I have placed a new build at with the change for you to try. Simply download that file and extract the contents into your existing v13.xx installation folder to give it a try. If you are using the 64-bit v13 version there is a new build at .

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Sorry, I was on GM 13 - more of a miss type in my post above. Thank you very much! I'll come back to you on Monday with some feed-back after I get a chance to try a script with the new parameter.
    Have a nice weekend!

    I just tried a script with EXPORT_VECTOR INC_COLOR=YES, it works a charm! Thank you very much!
