Visualization Options and Tools

SVI has a long experience in visualization next to its strong focus on deconvolution. Several interactive 3D visualization tools are already included in the Huygens Essential and Professional. These tools can be extended with additional visualization options (see bottom page).

Visualization Tools (included in Huygens basics free of charge)

Screen shot Description
TwinSlicerAdvMode.png The Twin Slicer.

The Twin Slicer allows you to synchronize views of two images, measure distances, plot line profiles, etc. In Basic Mode, image comparison is intuitive and easy, while the Advanced Mode gives the user the freedom to rotate the cutting plane to any arbitrary orientation, link (synchronize) or unlink viewing parameters, and more.

Crosshair3.png The Orthogonal Slicer.

The Orthogonal Slicer is designed to show the same point in 3D space from 3 orthogonal directions, i.e., xy (top left), xz (bottom left), and yz (bottom right). If you move one of the slices, the others will follow to make sure that the center of each of the slices intersects in the same point in space. This behavior makes the Ortho Slicer a useful tool to study small objects in 3D.

The Simulated Fluorescence Process renderer considers a 3D microscopy image as a distribution of fluorescent material. The SFP algorithm creates depth cue rich images from unprocessed data, and is eminently suited to render 3D microscopic data sets since it does not rely on boundaries or sharp gradients. Because the algorithm is based on ray-tracing, it does not require a special graphic card.

The Maximum Intensity Projection renderer projects only the voxels with maximum intensity that fall in the way of parallel rays traced from the viewpoint to the plane of projection. This allows you to obtain a direct spatial projection of your 3D microscopy data from the point of view you wish.

Selection_090.png The Gallery Tool.

The Gallery tool shows all individual Z slices or time serie frames in one overview, and allows detailed inspection of the slices with the Detailed Tile viewer.The overview can be customized and saved for e.g. presentation purposes.

Visualization Options (optional in Huygens)

Available starting from 590€ / 780$ ex VAT

Screen shot Description
Screenshot 3.7.0 The Surface Renderer.

The Surface Renderer renders very large microscopic volume data to high resolution output images using fast Ray Tracing algorithms. Separated volumes are represented continuous surfaces and thus can be clearly distinguished from one another.

MoviemakerOption2.png The Movie Maker.

The Movie Maker is a tool that allows you to easily create sophisticated animations of your multi-channel 3D images using the powerful Huygens Visualization renderers.Movies can be exported as AVI or TIFF images.

You are welcome to explore these options using a free_trial.png version, or to receive pricing information.
