the acquisition device does not capture the full image of a slice
in one shot, several overlapped pictures of the same slice can be taken.
The Mosaic tool allows translation and rotatation of the pictures that
comprise a slice to build a single coherent image of the section. To build a sequence with
slices composed of several images, it is strongly recommended to store the
images organized in subfolders during the acquisition process and then
to create the sequence in BioVis3D in such a way that every slice
contains its images. For details on how to create a sequence to use the
mosaic tool see Create a Sequence -

images of each slice on the top left corner, sligthly shifted with
respect to each other, as shown in Figure 2.
