@FelixM, thank you ,that's really impressive. However I am a bit lost because there is a lot to dig into.
I've read the great posts by @tpietzsch in
And am trying to wrap my head around what I would need.
What I have so far:
- I am reading an xml file which contains all the metadata from the microscope.
- All image files are single slice tiff files
- The dataset has channels, time, slices, rows, columns, and tiles inside each row-column
The images could be tiles, or just regions taken at random by the user, called fields.
What I'd want to do is allow the user to load a particular row/column so that they can move through time.
This involves loading the images at the right offsets (we can get the absolute stage positions).
So here are some questions and just wondering how to get started
- How do I load a subset of tiff files (distinguished by name) into a meaningful container (I guess)
CellLoader, in order to
- Open these using the cached image functions from the post above.
I looked at the examples, travered the API, but comments are few and sparse on where to get started. Evertytime I reach somewhere, it's an abstract class I have to implement that depends on some deeper abstract class. It's all nice when you have simple placeholer classes that show the functionality, but without a pretty extensive knowledge of ImgLib2 itself, getting into it is rather difficult, especially that it is in heavy development.
Thank again for any time and insight you can dedicate to this.
