ImgOpenerbut the method sigs changed. I'll look into whether we can readd the old sigs for backwards compatibility. The
scifio-clicomponent had not been updated; I pushed a
new-scifiobranch doing so (STILL UNTESTED).
scifio-1.0.0because the latter looks like a release tag to Travis—we don't want Travis building these branches. (See
scifio-bf-compatfor example of why not.)
scifio-tutorialswere also never updated... -_-
I believe there's a chance that it could work without too much effort. Here's a few things I've done and noticed:
0 - I acquired a few test VSI images, widefield or fluorescent, multichannel or single channel, 2D or 3D
1 - 2D Single channel images can already be open using SciFIO! But multi-channel images are causing troubles, I think because there's a confusion between channels and Z dimension
2 - Pyramidal image can be put aside for the moment, but it would be nice to retrieve them for the sake a making a nice BigDataViewer
Here's what I' trying to do at the moment:
Overall the format support with SCIFIO is currently not good enough for VSI, and we are heavy users of this file format in the facility where I work. We have to deal with huge 2D slide scanners dataset, stored in VSI file format. VSI contains several datasets and their associated pyramids. Among the current limitations:
Source<T>, using SciFIO
What I have currently done:
Source<T>, cached, that uses the stored pyramid, directly from BioFormat. The opening time is instantaneous, and even if it's currently failing because of me testing it quick and dirty, it's very promising imo (https://twitter.com/nKiaru/status/1133387957203800065)
I'll continue along this path, and I'll be happy to help in order to provide a better support for VSI format. Also maybe I missed something big which can solve the problem instantaneously ;-), I'd be happy to hear it!
