I have a question related to the NamesAndTypes module.
When i load an single CZI file (200frames, 2channels, 16MB) and use NamesAndTypes to assign the channels based on the metadata, the Pipeline runs really slow. The output of CP shows:
Worker 1: Thu Feb 6 13:50:42 2014: Image # 200, module NamesAndTypes # 3: 5.77 secs
When I split the CZI in two channels and save those as single images, I end up with 400singel TIFFs. The same pipeline (adapted to read those TIFFs runs now much faster. One line of the output is:
Worker 1: Thu Feb 6 14:11:14 2014: Image # 200, module NamesAndTypes # 3: 0.20 secs
My question is, what can I do the speed up the first way to process the data? Because the splitting and saving is something I actually want to get rid of. But if the Analysis itself is much slower afterwards, reading the data as a single file might be the wrong approach. Is there are reason why NamesAndTypes is much slower for the single (large) file? Is it reading in the whole thing every cycle?
Thanks for the help?
