Is there a possibility to define a BigSticher project from several HDF5 files that were created beforehand by BigStitcher?
In workflows where you want to nest output of a project in a new project, this functionality would save a lot of time. My current workaround is
(1) export to tiff
(2) create new project in BigStitcher with Tiff files and
(3) convert tiff files into HDF5.
I would like to load pre-converted multi-resolution HDF5 files (BigDataViewer format) as BigStitcher tiles, which is similar to what you wanted to perform. Have you managed?
Alternatively I would already be happy to perform TIF to HDF5 conversion from BigStitcher but I do not think that it can load TIF files as virtual stack, hence this solution is pretty limited for huge datasets.
