Default 3D rising bubble view in paraFoam post-processing

Hi all,

I'm modeling a rising bubble in 3D but I cannot view the bubble in paraFoam. The bubble column blocks the 3D view. The best view I have so far is through decomposePar processed quarter-view. How can I make the bubble column invisible so that I can properly view and animate the entire 3D bubble as it rises? Thank you.

You can use iso-contours of the variable that defines the phases (alpha1=0.5 for interFoam) or just cut slices.
