Detailed Description

This macro demonstrates how to use "glcol" option for TH3 and how to create user defined TRANSFER FUNCTION: transfer function maps bin value to voxel's opacity. codomain is 0, 1 To pass transparency function into painting algorithm, you have to:

  1. Create TF1 object (with symbolic expression like "0.5 * (sin(x) + 1)":
    ...
    TF1 * tf = new TF1("TransferFunction", "0.5 * (sin(x) + 1)", -10., 10.);
    ...

IMPORTANT, the name of TF1 object MUST be "TransferFunction".

  1. Add this function into a hist's list of functions:
    ...
    TList * lof = hist->GetListOfFunctions();
    if (lof) lof->Add(tf);
    ...

It's also possible to use your own function and pass it into TF1, please read TF1 documentation to learn how.

This macro is to be compiled: TF1 is extremely slow with CINT's function as an argument.
