Lars, I appreciate the 3d's team attempt to explain what they meant but I am afaid I am still lost. The explanation seems to make sense but it is dangling just out of reach. Can you provide the citation for Foley et. al that is mentioned below? Perhaps if I can review some of the literature I will have a better understanding of the explanation. Hope you are having a great day!
