I’m working on a procedure for speeding up ImageJ macros by parallel loading and processing of images.
The idea is loading
image1 is processed. Afterwards,
image3 will be loaded while
image2 is processed and so on.
I just programmed a prototype which performs pretty well. I can spare 30% of overall processing time.
You can try it yourself by downloading the preloader.jar file, putting it in the jars subdirectory of your Fiji installation and restarting Fiji. Try this macro to reproduce my log window above:
Also: Find the source code of the plugin here.
I was wondering if something like this aleady exists somewhere in the ImageJ/Fiji universe. If not, might there be a place for the preloader in the Fiji distribution?
