The Clipping Planes

Six new clipping planes has been added in Vis5D version 5.2. This allows you to manipulate the viewing volume in a more precise manner. Press the 'Clipping' radio button in order to enter the clipping mode.

There are two horizontal clipping planes the top and bottom. There are also four vertical clipping planes, the north, south, east and west. Only one clipping plane may be moved at a time. The middle mouse button, when clicked in the 3-D display window, will cycle through and highlight the six planes. The clipping planes are then moved in the same manner as the vertical and horizontal slices. Simply click on a corner or midpoint of the clipping slice with the right mouse button and drag it. The clipping planes may set back to there default positions by pressing the R key.
