Description

The VolViewer main application window.

VolViewer is an open source application for the interactive visualisation and quantification of biological data. The application is written in C++ using OpenGL and Qt.

Features:

  • Real-time volume rendering using an optimized 3D texture slicing algorithm.
  • Interactive transfer functions to independently adjust opacity and intensity for up to three data channels.
  • Real-time per channel thresholding, brightness and contrast operators.
  • On-the-fly gradient computation for local illumination.
  • Iso-surface computation with surface smoothing.
  • Section viewing in any orientation / position.
  • Real-time volume clipping.
  • 3D measurements, filters & segmentation.
  • Key frame interpolation for easy movie creation.
  • Stereo rendering using either quad buffer or anaglyph mode.

Requirements: An OpenGL 2.1 / GLSL 1.20 compatible GPU with a recomended 512MB of memory.

Although we try to keep up to date builds these sometimes lag behind the SVN trunk. So if you want the latest version / features, it is best to build the application from the trunk of the SVN. The build system is based on qmake for easy cross platform compilation.

Windows (32bit) Windows (64bit) Linux (64bit) MacOS X (i386/x86_64/10.5+)

Building from source

If you have the [Qt SDK] correctly installed it is possible to build VolViewer from source by simply running:

qmake src.pro 

from within the VolViewer/VolViewer/VolViewer/src/ folder.

Building with OMERO support

It is possible to build VolViewer with support for the Open Microscopy Environment, please see the guide below:
