Hmmm. Blanking support was added to VTK and ParaView a while ago but
it is not fully implemented yet. I believe blanking arrays in plot3d
files are read for example. It also works with AMR in certain cases. I
think the blanking support will get better as we get feature requests
and use cases from users.
