I have been using SCIFIO to open my images lately and I find that sometimes a TIFF will open as a virtual stack and sometimes it does not. ImageJ will usually stick to one of the two methods until something “fixes” it. I have not been able to recognize any patterns here, but perhaps a setting is getting reset and ImageJ isn’t using SCIFIO temporarily?
I would really like ImageJ to always use a virtual stack because its faster and prevents out of memory situations. Is there any way to make ImageJ always default to opening the TIFF as a virtual stack?
