DESCRIPTION

VELCOLOR makes a three-plane, red-green-blue, Miriad image cube that can be used to generate a colour display of the third axis of a data cube, typically velocity. The RGB planes must be superposed in a suitable viewer.

The algorithm weights the channels so that the apparent intensity of the superposed RGB planes is independent of color. For more details see Heiles & Jenkins (1976), A&A, 46, 33.  

PARAMETERS

in
The input image. No default.
region
The region of the input image to be used. The 3rd axis region determines the range from blue to red. See documentation on region for help of how to specify this. Only the bounding box is supported.
pivot
Center channel of input image for output green image. Default is 0.4*trc+0.6*blc
out
The output RGB cube. No default.
clip
Two values. Exclude pixels with values in the range clip(1) to clip(2). If only one value is given, then exclude -abs(clip) to +abs(clip).
