Just starting to use bio-formats to import *.czi files from a Zeiss microscope, and am new to this forum.
I’m trying to open “point time scan” images that are saved as 80000 frames of 1x500 pixel images, making a file about 80 MB. Eventually this needs to be stitched into a single 80000x500 pixel image for analysis.
If I only import the first 100 or so frames, things work fine, but it takes about a minute to load, one frame at a time, into a stack. This means that opening all 80000 frames will take about 13 hours! I’ve tried opening the full file, all 80000 frames, and left it running for a few hours at work, but it only got to several thousand frames loaded before I had to go leave. I’m running Windows 10 on a Dell T7500 workstation with 64 GB memory, so shouldn’t be any issues there.
Is there a faster way to open a stack like this?
