Detailed Description

Enables an additional OpenGL clipping plane that can be in shaders using gl_ClipDistance

By default, OpenGL supports up to 8 additional clipping planes. Qt3DCore::QClipPlane allows to enable one of these additional planes. These planes can then be manipulated in the shaders using gl_ClipDistance[i] where i varies between 0 and 8.
