- Cubes in RAW,
SER and SPD format are opened with the File / Open
menu, just as single images are opened. Use this menu to make a cube
from various types of image files. Use the Cube button
to make cubes from open images.
a cube as a folder of images. You
can select images before reading.
Read single file cubes such as .raw, .ser and
.spd, with File / open, just as for the
usual single image files.
- to make a cube from images that are already open, use Cube / from
folder of image files for export, or as a raw cube file.

is intended mainly for making movies of cubes. Scaled images are written
for all JPEG files, and TIFF files with numerical or mirror slice names.
(eg. floating point) data is written only to TIFF files with original
slice names. And this doesn't work for double-float images. 3/28/01
DSB Saving original data cube as a raw file works best. (Note - the
byte order for saving a cube is arbitrary, and will be set to whatever
is in the import window. If the parameter is blank and needs to be set,
Lispix will ask. DSB 5/15/02)
image type also shows compression:
- Fix to LUT - rescales image data according to LUT.
- LUT - makes pixmaps conform to current LUT, such as made with CLUT
/ threshold slider.
Use the '***Buttons*** -> Zoom' to set the zoom for the window.
On the PC, if the zoom is less than one and the images are large, it
will take several seconds to make the new pixmap. This 'Zoom!' button
sets the zoomed (reduced) pixmaps for
all of the slices.
After changing the contrast with '***Buttons*** -> Sliders or Th!',
this button will propigate the new color scale or contrast enhanced
gray scale to the other slices of the cube.
Pop and push sliders, windows, plots.
Sizes window to size of what the registered cube will be. Eliminates movie
cube being worked on.
Make cube slice slider. E.G. replace the slider to choose the slice,
it be closed accidentally.
Make region slider. For selecting a peak or region of a spectrum.
Make layers slider for decimation, cropping.
height New 5/18/04. For adjusting the height of all these
sliders to adapt to certain desktop themes that otherwise make the default
sliders with height so small as to render them useable. The default
slider height is 45 (15 pixel slider area and 20 pixel title bar).
One modified theme required the height to be 60. Select the theme
by right clicking on the desktop, selecting properties, theme tab.
I prefer "Windows Classic".
Plot Make plots.
These plots used in turn to define ranges for making cubes or images.
The multi spectrum plot is handy for searching spectral images for unexpected
Make sum images. Extract a slice to a window.
Make cubes - summations, cropped versions of original cube, registered cube,
rotated cube, decimated (shrunk) cube, trimmed-scaling, and in general,
any single command used
with the process folder tool, including mean filters or smoothing),
running sum, running top hat.
Special purpose info not available via 'Image Buttons -> Info button'.
Only function at
the moment lists slices with pixel values exceeding an input limit.
Principal Component Analysis. Make
component cube and reconstructed cube.

Buttons below work on the cube selected by the Cube!
Select the front cube to flicker, register, etc. Resets some things.
slc... Click to select the current slice as the reference slice.
Slc! Select the flicker slice.
Bump the flicker slice up one. Handy for moving through the slice in
flicker mode and
tweaking the offsets with the U,L,R,D buttons.
Flicker and movie speed. Fastest available. 0 secs. delay.
Next fastest flicker speed.
Arbitrary flicker speed. Input is delay in seconds.
Off... Turn flicker or movies on or off. Repeating movie, oscillating
Print, save, load, clear the offsets.
Click on a reference point in each slice (this is very rapid). Plot.
initialize offsets, determine (perpendicular to) the rotation axis.
L R D Jog the flicker image up, left, right or down one pixel.
Drag the line&circle in the slice slider to view selected slices. Slices
are shown with ZERO individual offsets. The slices are offset
individually in the flicker and movie modes but not in the still mode.
Turn the drag to scroll on (Image Buttons -> Drag ON) and drag the image
Flicker is OFF, to position the entire stack in the window. Use with zoom
on a small portion of the window. Scrolling in this way does NOT change
any slice offsets.
Drag with Flicker ON to position the flicker slice only. This sets the offset
for that slice. This can be done with the image zoomed and scrolled as in
