Exporting to Text

Use Insight’s export function to write seismic or other volume data to text format.

Note: Exporting to text is only applicable for single volume.

Warning: Text formats are an inefficient way to store data and will be many times larger than the original format. Ensure that you have the disk space and resources available when exporting to text.
