Dear vtk users,

I am trying to these tasks using *vtkPolyDataMapper with
vtkUnsignedCharArray*, *vtkRenderer, vtkRenderWindow *to get pixel count of
a specific cell

1. Translate index value(within 1 ~ 16777215) to R, G, B value (using R =
idx & 255, G = (idx >> 8) & 255, B = (idx >> 16) & 255
2. From all points of each cell, assigning those color values into
*with SetTupleValue(point index of same cell, color) (the forth value of
color is always 255)
- i.e, All different cells have different RGB value. (If I set only 50
cells in the model, only 50 cells have distinct color in 1 ~ 50)
3. Setting the model using *vtkProperty *with these settings

4. Render this model using *vtkRenderWindow *with these settings
    renderwindow->SetSize(600, 600);
5. Get vtkImageData using *vtkWindowToImageFilter *and access
6. Translate RGB to index and count it.

However, RGB values translate wrong indices which I did not expect, I want
to know how to set my renderer or actor without interpolation and shading
to get the expected color.
