Generate Euler Colors

Group (Subgroup)

Generic Filters (Misc)


This filter will generate an RGB color for each Cell that is calculated from the Euler Angles for the cell. If you want IPF Colors this is NOT the filter for you, use the Generate IPF Colors filter. The algorithm is to assign a color component based on a scale of the following:

Euler Component Min Value (Radians) Max Value (Radians) Calculation
phi1 (Euler 0) 0 2 Pi phi1 / 2Pi * 255
Phi (Euler 1) 0 Pi Phi / Pi * 255
phi2 (Euler 2) 0 2 Pi phi2 / 2Pi * 255


Given the set of Euler Angles (0.43765, 0.265830, 5.583250) would result in RGB Values of [17, 21, 226].
