Gradient Post Processing

Visualize gradients using vectors.

Analyze Vector

Analyze the vector in a gradient plot from the Gradient tab. Representing gradients as a vector field is an effective way to see gradients in space.

  1. From the Post-Processing step, click the Gradient tab.
  2. Use the Inputs and Output tabs of the Channel selector to select three dimensions of data to plot.
  3. Analyze the direction and intensity of the vector created using the selected data sets.
