How do I display a horizon with its contours in 3D View?

Contours are generated in the Map View (see Contouring in Map View). We can simulate contours in 3D View by creating pseudo-contours.

  1. Make a copy of the horizon you wish to contour (see Copying a Horizon).
  2. Create a new Class (see Creating a Class) and import the "banded_PseudoContours_10.ducolbar" coloubar from DUG-Insight’s default list of colourbars (see Importing a Colourbar).
  1.  Change the class of the Horizon Copy to the new class (PseudoContours).
  1. Turn on both horizons as surfaces in the 3D View.
  2. The copied horizon’s banded colourbar is largely transparent, you can still see the original horizon, but with the discrete black lines overlaid.
  3. Manually adjust the min/max cut-off values of the copy so that the black lines fall on exact values. The colourbar will be divided into 10 bands between the min and max values.
  4. For example, in the following image, the difference between the min and max values is 500, so every 50 will be black lines (interval = 50).
