Hi Robert,

thanks for your reply.

Isn't osg::Scissor doing just a 2D clipping in window coordinates? What I need 
is a 3D clipping of all sides of the former view frustum. Especially when 
looking in through a "side wall" of the scaled-down frustum, scissoring would 
not work.

The way I understand it, my results for Scissor and the ClipNode approach would 
only be identical, if I used an orthographic projection. But I am using a 
perspective projection, making it possible to look into the scaled-down frustum 
volume from more sides than just the former view plane.
