A canvas collects a number of video images and two-photon stacks into a motor space. A canvas represents a single imaging session. An imaging session can be (i) all images taken during a single in vivo imaging session of an animal, (ii) all images taken while imaging one in vitro brain-slice.
Note: A canvas can (in theory) be created from any collection of stacks if you are using a motorized (and computer controlled) objective. For now, canvas creation is possible when using ScanImage and an mp285 motor controller from Sutter Instruments.
|Shift + Arrow Keys||Pan video layer only|
|Shift + / Shift –||Zoom in/out (smaller steps)|
|C||Left and top side panels to display list of video/stacks, set contrast|
|M||Show motor interface. Only available when Canvas is viewed with mp285|
A canvas has multiple layers, one layer for video and another for two-photon stacks. The layers can be nudged left/right and up/down so that the images taken on different light paths can be aligned.
