Huygens Workflow Processor
Design your batch processing workflow with a simple drag and drop of tasks
Batch process all your images with a custom-made workflow.
Apply optimally designed processing pipelines to groups of images, and treat all data similarly for reliable quantification.
Combine different restoration and analysis tasks.
More than 12 different tasks can be combined into a high-throughput workflow with a simple drag & drop approach.
Previews of raw and restored images are presented on the fly.
Monitor the batch processing with interactive previews of the raw and restored images, and be in full control.
Workflow Processor: Complete, Fast, and reliable
Huygens powerful Workflow Processor (replaced the Batch Processor since version 20.10) enables you to schedule many different workflows, each consisting of a set of tasks that can be applied to one or to a group of images. There are more than 12 different tasks to choose from (see bottom page), including deconvolution, restoration, stitching, and (colocalization) analysis. With each workflow, you can decide to process similar images differently, or to treat a group of images in the exact same manner, which may be preferred if you are interested in comparing analysis results between images. Since Huygens 23.04, the ''Deconvolution'' task includes the "Automatic" algorithm which uses automatically found settings for each image, similar as to how Deconvolution Express operates.
When adding a new task within the main window of the ''Workflow Processor'', a new ''Workflow Designer'' window appears which allows you to design a specific sequence of processing steps. Operations like changing image dimensions, deconvolution, chromatic aberration correction, drift correction, Autocrop, and file format conversion can be easily included in a workflow with a simple drag and drop approach.
Once a task, consisting of one or a set of images and a workflow is scheduled within the main ''Workflow Processor'' window, and the batch processing has started, previews of the raw and restored image are displayed in the preview window (see figure below).
Available Workflow tasks/operations:
Select location of images (incl. image series and container files)
Set Microscopy Parameters
Hot and Cold Pixel Correction
Stabilize Z slices
Deconvolution (Automatic setting available as in Decon. Express)
Drift correction and Z movement
Stabilize time series
Chromatic aberration correction
Convert Data Type (for example to Tiff 16bit))
Set save location and data type
