Contour fill options

  • Draw contour fill:
  • By number of colors: Here the number of colors of the results color map can be specified.
  • By width interval: Fixes the width of each color zone. For instance, if a width interval of 2 is set, each color will represent a zone where the results differ by two units at the most.
  • Color map: Specifies the properties of the color scale:
  • Rainbow: The color scale will be the default: starting from blue (minimum) through green to red (maximum).
  • Inverse raindow: The color scale will be the inverse of the default: starting from red (minimum) through green to blue (maximum).
  • Terrain: A physical map-like color ramp will be used.
  • Black & white: Black for Minimum and White for Maximum, and a grey scale between these.
  • White & black: White for Minimum and White for Maximum, and a grey scale between these.
  • 3D Anaglyphs 2: A variation of 3D anaglyphs.
  • User defined: The color scale can be fully set by user. (See color window)
  • More color options: When the user defined color map is selected a window opens to let you configure the colour scale of the contours easily.
  • Set Contour Limits: used to tell the program which contour limits it should use when there are no user defined limits: the absolute minimum and maximum of all sets or shown sets, for the current step or for all steps.
  • Out maximum color: With this option you can specify how the outlying values should be drawn: Black, White, Maximum color, Transparent or Material.
  • Out minimum color: With this option you can specify how the outlying values should be drawn: Black, White, Minimum color, Transparent or Material.
  • Add brightness: Enables or disables the shininess of the colours in Contour Fill. The shininess type can also be choosed between: metallic, plastic and rubber.
  • Smoothing type: With this option you can choose between these types of local smoothing:
  • Minimum value: The minimum value between two adjacent elements is the result that is used.
  • Maximum value: The maximum value between two adjacent elements is the result that is used.
  • Mean value: ( the default) A mean value of the points between two adjacent elements is the result that is used.

Contour lines options

  • Contour lines width: Defines the width of the contour lines.
