Grid/Collection stitching z-stack

Jakob M
Hi,

I am trying to find an optimal way of stitching a number of z-stacks for different time points using the Fiji Grid/Collection stitching plugin.
I would like to stitch one z-stack corresponding to one time-point, and then apply that to all other z-stacks. So far, it works if I do it on individual z-slices, and then apply the resulting TileConfiguration.txt to other slices. Is there a way I can give the full tif-stack to the plugin? Currently, it assumes that the different images in the stack are different time points, so that doesn’t work.

Or would it be better to make a large time-z-stack and stitch that? How does the plugin know which is the z-index and which is the time index?

Sidenote: This tutorial http://fiji.sc/Stitch_and_Align_a_sequence_of_grid_images_Tutorial and also the help site http://fiji.sc/Stitching_2D/3D mention some options like "Stitch Image Grid Sequence” that do not show up in my current Fiji version.

Thanks
Jakob

Hi Jakob,

you can just stitch one timepoint and then apply the same coordinates to images in a different directory, for example. That should work ...

regarding the side-note: On top of the wiki page it says that this is an outdated version that is not supported any more and it links to the current version:
http://fiji.sc/Image_Stitching <http://fiji.sc/Image_Stitching> <http://fiji.sc/Image_Stitching <http://fiji.sc/Image_Stitching>>

All the best,
Stephan

Hi Stephan,

thanks for you reply, good to know it should be possible. However, I still don’t know how, maybe I didn’t explain well enough. I have the following two problems:

1. If I give the plugin a number of z-stacks to stitch, it doesn’t work because it assumes that the z-stacks are different time points. Is it possible to merge z-stacks? If so, how?

2. Once I have a TileConfiguration.txt (I currently can get it for the individual z-slices), how do I apply that to other files? I assume I have to choose "Position from files", but then there is no option to give a different directory or other files to be used with the positions in that file. I could modify TileConfiguration.txt to include different file names, but that seems rather clumsy.

Thanks again for you help!
Jakob
