Null file handle with bioformats plugin

Hello experts:
I’m using a groovy script in Imagej to open a .ome.tiff file (saved from qupath). From what I gather Fiji uses the bioformat plugin to read this file. I checked in the plugin config and it is enabled for this format.
However, as the documentation for IJ.openImage states:

I’m running into that issue - the returned ImagePlus object is null. Surely there must be some way to process these files in script?

Thank you,

Hi @darshats, do you still see the same issue if you use the Bio-Formats macro extensions to open it (You can see the list of commands under Plugins > Bio-Formats > Bio-Formats Macro Extensions):

run("Bio-Formats Macro Extensions");
