Creating an EDF layer from a multi-layer scan takes a very long time to process.
This can be caused on some computers when there are a large number of blank fields in the scanned region of interest.
EDF processing searches each layer in the focus stack (or Z-stack) to find the pixels that are in the best focus. When the field is blank, there are no best focused pixels and the EDF algorithm may take a long time to complete. Some computers seem to work just fine while others exhibit these performance issues.
There are several work-arounds you can try to mitigate this problem.
This performance issue has been encountered on only a few computer systems. Not all CPU/GPU combinations are affected.
This problem will be addressed in a future release of uScope Navigator once we have data on its exact cause.
