shows the main components of the user interface of BioVis3D.
The User Interface.
In a 2D View
(see Figure 1), also called a Slice View, all tasks that attain a specific slice are performed. For example, delimiting
by contours, registering a slice, and building mosaics. Several 2D Views
may be opened at the same time.
In the 3D View
(see Figure 1), all 3D models that were created with
BioVis3D are visualized and operated.
The Menu Bar
contains all main menus of the application where there are several commands
and tools. For example the File main menu contains options to open and save a
sequence, among others.
The Menu Bar.
contains buttons that provide short access to many commands and tools. The
precise buttons available on the Toolbar depend on the context where the user is
working. For example when the 3D View is active there will be different buttons
as when a 2D View is active.
Explorer shows the objects of a sequence organized in categories. When a slice
view is active, it also shows the contours and dot sets of every object in the
slice. By default the Object Explorer panel will be on the top left
corner of the BioVis3D main window as in Figure 1.
List panel shows the list of all the slices of the sequence (number and time of
the last modification) and provides the interface to open, add, delete and
reorder slices. By default the Slice List panel is on the right of
the BioVis3D main window as in Figure 1.
