Displaying selected views in BigDataViewer

If your dataset is in a format suitable for quick visualization by BigDataViewer (e.g. multiresolution HDF5 or virtually loading), a BigDataViewer window in which selected Views can be visualized will open along with the BigStitcher main window. For other datasets, you can open BigDataViewer manually via the right-click menu by clicking DisplayingDisplay in BigDataViewer(on/off). If a BigDataViewer window is currently open, clicking this will close it.

For help on using BigDataViewer, you can either click HelpShow Help in the BigDataViewer window or consult the BigDataViewer documentation on this Wiki.

Toggle per-view and per-channel coloring by pressing c in the main window.

In the BigDataViewer window accompanying the BigStitcher, you can switch between color schemes by pressing C in the BigSitcher main window. A single press will switch between per-view and per-channel coloring. Pressing C repeatedly will cycle through different colors.

Displaying selected views as ImageJ images

In addition to toggling the BigDataViewer, you can also display selected views one-by-one as standard ImageJ images using the Displaying functions in the right-click menu.

  • Using DisplayingDisplay Raw Image(s), you can open the selected views as 16-bit or 32-bit images in ImageJ.
  • Using DisplayingMax-Projection, you can generate maximum-intensity projections of the selected view stacks and display them as ImageJ images.
