LookupTable.apply_cmap(cmap, n_values: int = 256, flip: bool = False)[source]#

Assign a colormap to this lookup table.

This can be used instead of LookupTable.cmap when you need to set the number of values at the same time as the color map.

cmapstr, list, colors.Colormap

Colormap from Matplotlib, colorcet, or cmocean.

n_valuesint, default: 256

Flip direction of cmap. Most colormaps allow *_r suffix to do this as well.


Apply matplotlib’s 'cividis' color map.

>>> lut.apply_cmap('cividis', n_values=32)
>>> lut.plot()
