Documentation

This plugin contains the following Blocks :

  • Conversion:
    • Convert Stack: Convert all slices to time or vice-versa
    • Convert Type: Convert the type of the sequence to another type
  • Creation:
    • Create Sequence: create a sequence from nothing or from an image
    • Duplicate Sequence: duplicate input sequence
    • Combine Channels: combine two channels from two sequence (possibly the same). For more than 2 channels, you will have to use more “Combine Channels” blocks
  • Extraction:
    • Extract Channel: extract a channel from the sequence as a new sequence
    • Extract Multi Channels: extract one or more channels from the sequence, as a new sequence. To extract multiple channels, please use spaced numbers or an Array Input of numbers
    • Extract Stack: extract a whole stack at a specified time position
    • Extract Time: extract the whole time for a specified stack position
    • Crop Sequence: crop a new sequence from the input sequence. The area of the crop is defined by a ROI
  • Images:
    • Add Image: add the image into the sequence in the last T position after the last Z
    • Remove Image: remove an image at the specified Z and T position
    • Get Image: get an image from the input sequence at the specified Z and T position
    • Set Image: set an input image in the input sequence at the specified Z and T position
    • As Image Array: the output is an Array of Images, containing all images in the sequence.
  • Infos:
    • Get Metadata: uses a sequence as input, and output all metadata, such as Sequence Name and resolution (1)
    • Set Name: changes the name of the sequence
    • Set Resolution: changes the resolution of the ratio: pixel per millimeter, on X / Y / Z axes.
    • Dimensions: get all the dimensions of the input sequence: width / height / nb channels / nb stacks / nb time positions
  • Files:
    • Load Sequence: load a sequence from the specified file
    • Save Sequence: saves the input sequence onto the disk at the specified location
    • Is File Valid: tests if the given file has a good extension
  • ROIs:
    • AddRois: Adds one or multiple ROIs to a given sequence.
(1) Pixel Size represents the size of a pixel in millimeters.

  1. Anonymous
    very useful, should be installed by default with protocol
  2. Hi. I tried to use this to concatinate two sequences together, but this block is missing. It would be great to have this function available.
  3. Hello I tried to use the convert stack block but it seems to be missing. It would be great to have it. Thanks
