I frequently find that Z-projections of my stacks are most informative when viewed as Standard Deviation projections. (Incidentally, I’m not entirely clear on what this projection mode is doing; is it showing the values that are more than one St.Dev from the mean of the population of values?). Unfortunately, this method of projecting a stack is not available in the 3D projection menu (just “nearest” “brightest” or “mean”, where brightest seems to be doing the same thing as a maximum projection in Z).
Has anyone written a macro that can do St.Dev projections in 3D? Would anyone be interested in this?
