Anyone using the Volume Distribution Paint Bar Study?

I did a search and couldn't find one about the Volume Distribution Paint Bar Study.

Has anyone tried it (or using it)?

I'm having trouble understanding it (sometimes the SC docs just don't click for me).

I was looking at this too, and it took me quite a while to decipher Sierra's explanations too, but it's basically a volume profile color indicator per bar... hope that helps
