Summary0003130: vtkImplicitFunctionToImageStencil MTime
DescriptionThe vtkImplicitFunctionToImageStencil does not check the MTime of the
input ImplicitFunction, that is why the stencil doesn't update. Since
a vtkImplicitFunction isn't a vtkDataObject, the VTK pipeline mechanism
doesn't automatically take care of the updating.

Conversely, the vtkPolyDataToImageStencil is a true VTK filter that
has a vtkDataObject as both input and output, and the pipeline behaves as

The vtkImplicitFunctionToImageStencil works by evaluating the
ImplicitFunction at every voxel within the UpdateExtent of the ImageData
that is being stenciled, which is fairly inefficient.

The vtkPolyDataToImageStencil works by looking at where the raster lines
of the image (i.e. lines of constant z,y) intersect the PolyData,
and hence is very efficient as long as the PolyData is not too complex.
