Step four: Resize images

This fourth step is optional and it only appears if the images are large, giving the option of rescaling them. This is very useful for photos acquired with high resolution devices, which often result in images larger than what it is really necessary. Reducing the size of images, improves considerably the performance of BioVis3D.  

Figure 1: Sequence Creation Wizard Step four.

The field work with images at is to select the desired reduction percentage. It is worth noting that since BioVis3D copies image files to the sequence directory, the original images remain unchanged and only the copies are reduced. The suggested initial value is computed by BioVis3d automatically to obtain 1024x768 images. This value can be kept, a different reduction percentage can be selected, or the original images can be worked with, checking the box to work with original resolution.

Once a reduction percentage has been selected, see how this looks like on the images by clicking the button View.

Note: the pixel size which has been selected in Step three will be automatically adjusted by BioVis3D.
