How the propagator Works   Article

Understanding Insight’s propagator can help you get great results in record time. As a waveform propagator, it evaluates much more than a single event, it uses the local waveform in a window. The settings can have a big impact on its behaviour!

Clear those undo/redos!   Quick Tip!

We can all learn from our history, but sometimes we have to move on. After months of tracking changes, your horizon might have that “not-so-fresh” feeling. With one click of the Clear History button, DUG Insight can freshen up a sluggish horizon and return its youthful vigour. Find out more!

Asymmetric picking tools   Quick Tip!

Picking an angular unconformity can be an exercise in frustration. It’s common for automatic propagators to wander off and track down a tilted layer, rather than the depositional surface above. Insight’s asymmetric horizon picking tools can handle this easily.

Using fault polygons in horizon picking   Quick Tip!

You’ve put in the time to pick your faults, but how do you make the most of that information? Most of DUG Insight’s horizon operations can take advantage of fault polygons to provide a more accurate result. Find out how to use fault polygons while picking and to stop horizon propagation from crossing those boundaries.
