Radeon ProRender


Sets a cutting plane (also called clipping plane).

rpr_status rprContextSetCuttingPlane( rpr_context context,
  rpr_int index,
  rpr_float a,
  rpr_float b,
  rpr_float c,
  rpr_float d);


Parameter Description
context The context to set a cutting plane for.
index Cutting plane index (starts from 0).
a Equation plane A.
b Equation plane B.
c Equation plane C.
d Equation plane D.


  • In order to disable the ‘index’ cutting plane, set (A,B,C,D) = (0,0,0,0). By default, on context creation all cutting planes are disabled.
  • Index can be any number. It doesn’t need to define the list of plane as a contiguous list of indices.
  • If the number of enabled planes is greater than the limit supported by the renderer, then RPR_ERROR_UNSUPPORTED is return by the function.
  • The normal of the equation plane points toward the area that is kept.
  • If several clipping planes are used the rendered area will be the one commonly facing all the planes.
  • Plane equation is Ax + By + Cz + D = 0


Returns RPR_SUCCESS in case of success, or RPR_ERROR code if a problem was encountered.
