While trying to merge two hyperstacks that are too large to fit in the RAM at the same time, I try to use virtual stacks. The problem is that after they are merged, both z and time stops functioning. I still says that the dataset contains correct z and time dimensions, but I can’t scroll throuh either. Also, if I save the merged hyperstack and open it in visualisation software like Imaris, it does not display correctly.
Is this a known issue, that virtual hyperstacks cannot be merged using Imagej?
EDIT: Could someone try to recreate this bug on their system to verify it? You need two 4D stacks that are too large to fit in the RAM at the same time. Open both of them as virtual stacks and try to merge them to a 2 channel 4D stack. Do you still have time and z, scrollable? For me, it only displays slice 1 on timepoint 1. Exporting them produces non-readable datasets.
