Clips a field using a specified scalar value.

A scalar clip filter result.
The original pipeline is the semi-transparent object.

A scalar filter can be combined with other filters. Here is for example a scalar filter on a warp filter (semi-transparent):


  1. Select a previously created result pipeline or another existing filter.
  2. Invoke the command either by:
    • Pressing the button Scalar clip filter.
    • Using the menu Results → Scalar clip filter.
  3. Adjust the Result display options like for the result pipeline. Hide that pipeline to see the effect of a Scalar Clip Filter.
  4. Select the Scalar type from the expandable list.
  5. Specify the Clip scalar value directly or use the slider.
  6. By default, all the regions with field values below the specified one will be hidden. Select the Clip inside out option to invert the display and hide the regions with values above the specified one.
  7. Click OK button to finish the command.
