Hi OVITO Developers!
I am using the Construct Surface Mesh Modifier to select and delete the surface atoms in my simulation box. I was able to visualize the constructed surface and output to a png file, and I would like to output the same image, but without the surface.
Or in general: I put in a modifier and it manifests visually, and I later want to remove it without actually creating a duplicate pipeline. (Option mentioned on this page in the manual, quoted “it is possible to change the parameters of modifiers in a pipeline at any time, or to remove modifiers from a pipeline again”). How do I do this?
To add a modifier the pipeline.append() function is available. Is there also a function named like pipeline.remove()? Sorry if this info already exists in the manual, I was unable to spot it.
I have also tried to remove the surface visual by accessing the surface transparency property like this:
surf_vis = pipeline.source.data.surfaces
But this also didn’t work.
Could you please give me any tips?
