VTK multi-volume ROI not working

See image below.

Also if I go from VTK multi-volume back to GPU ray casting, slicer crashes.

Multi-volume rendering is still experimental. Shading and clipping are not supported yet.

@pieper indicated that we need to use the multi-volume if we need to display multiple volumes: display incorrectly when two volume rendering by3D slicer 4.10.0

When I use the GPU ray-casting, I have the same isse as in display incorrectly when two volume rendering by3D slicer 4.10.0

The top head is always showing in foreground:

Multi-volume rendering will allow you to intermix multiple volumes correctly. However, until its limitations (shading, cropping, and maybe a few others that we are not aware yet) are addressed, you can use workarounds including using independent volume renderers (for highly transparent volumes they may provide acceptable quality), merging multiple volumes into a single volume, and/or using model and segmentation nodes for visualization.

I’ve added an issue to track resolving of mult-volume rendering limitations: https://issues.slicer.org/view.php?id=4719

Thank you, I think it would be a great improvement for Slicer. Great job.

Hello,

I would like to reopen this question to ask if VTK multi-volume ROI works now with the latest VTK version.
