MoBIE supports more features than the ones described in the previous tutorials. Here is a not exhaustive list of those features:
To take a screenshot of the MoBIE viewer, right click inside it and select Take Screenshot.
This will open the following menu:
The screenshots produced will be opened as normal ImageJ images that you can save / analyse however you want.
As an example, take this setup from the Platyneris project:
Here the raw EM data is shown, as well as 2 images showing the expression pattern of two genes (in green and pink).
Taking a screenshot with Show RGB Image checked gives:
and with Show Multi-Channel Image checked, gives a multi-channel image with the following 3 channels:
You can also export the raw data shown in MoBIE at various resolution levels. To do so, right click in the MoBIE viewer and select Show Raw Image(s)
This will open a window like below for each image shown:
Here you can select which resolution level to export. In this dropdown, the pixel dimensions of every resolution level are shown. For example, in the above image the selected resolution level is an image of 27499 x 25916 x 11416 pixels.
Make sure you select a resolution level that your computer can handle! For example, if your working on a laptop without much memory then you should select a lower resolution level with an image of smaller total size.
All exported images will be opened as normal ImageJ images that you can save / analyse however you want.
As every view can contain sets of transformations that are applied before it is displayed, sources and images can be shown registered on top of each other.
The transformations can be generated using external tools and then provided as part of a view, or generated directly in MoBIE. This registration functionality is also demonstrated in an example video.
In order to manually transform sources (and register them to each other), right click inside the MoBIE viewer and select Registration - Manual.
The following window with instructions will appear:
The currently active source(s) selected in MoBIE’s BDV window can now be moved with the standard viewer controls (translations, rotations, scaling). All unselected sources stay where they are. The transformation can be stored by pressing [T] or discarded [Esc].
In order to transform sources and register them to each other using BigWarp, right click inside the MoBIE viewer and select Registration - Manual.
The following window will appear:
Here you select which source(s) will stay fixed and which sources move during the transformation. The exact procedure is explained in BigWarp’s tutorials.
