Summary

uScope Navigator v4.5 introduced the ability to create EDF (Extended Depth of Field) images from a multi-layer scan or z-stack. Several options are used by the EDF image processor when creating the composite EDF images. If you change these options, you may need to re-generate the EDF field images and re-create a Deep Zoom or other Whole Scan Image.

The job folder for a multi-region scan appears as follows:

To Re-Generate EDF Image Fields...

Overwrite EDF FieldsIf an EDF folder containing the EDF Field Images already exists, when you click the Create Whole Scan Image button in uScope Navigator and opt to create the EDF layer, you are presented with an Overwrite Confirmation dialog for the EDF Field Images.

  • Select Overwrite to erase and re-create the EDF field images. This will erase and re-create the EDF folder (shown above in red).
  • Select Use Existing to keep the previous EDF field images.

Alternatively, you could use Windows Explorer to delete the EDF folder (shown above in red) manually.

To Re-Create the Deep Zoom Image...

Overwrite Deep Zoom EDF ImageIf an EDF Deep Zoom folder already exists, when you click the Create Whole Scan Image button and opt to create the EDF layer, you are presented with an Overwrite Confirmation dialog for the EDF Deep Zoom image.

  • Select Overwrite to erase and re-create the EDF Deep Zoom image. This will erase and re-create the EDF folder (shown above in blue).
  • Select Keep to keep the previous EDF Deep Zoom image.

Alternatively, you could use Windows Explorer to delete the EDF folder (shown above in blue) manually.
