Output toolbox

Output toolbox screenshot

This toolbox controls how simulation results (either finished or ongoing) are postprocessed and displayed in the main window area. It is activated only when a simulation preview tab is selected.

As opposed to most other node types, output can be modified during and after a simulation. Changes are updated immediately without needing to restart.

Main

Name

Sets the image title. This title is displayed in the tabs above the display area, this is very useful for organizing a large number of opened results. The title is also used as a default name when saving images or data to disk.

Type

The output type can be changed here.

Options

For more information on the postprocessing options, go to output types.

In RGB Image mode, the Delete button allows selecting a region over the preview image for setting the white point.

In Channel Image mode, the Magic wand button allows setting automatically the Range parameter to a suitable value.

Filters

This section allows adjusting the postprocessing filters of the current instrument output. The filters can be enabled or disabled, and their parameters can be changed. This can be done during a simulation, and the preview image is automatically updated.

The switch light color shows the filter status:

  • An unlit switch means the filter is switched off

  • A green switch means the filter is switched on and active

  • A red switch means the filter is switched on but cannot work in this configuration. This generally means that channels are incompatible, or that denoising meta-data is not available to the Noise killer filter

This toolbox does not allow adding, removing or reordering the filters. This must be done by editing the output node by right clicking the preview zone, and selecting Output Output settings
