Volocity Release Notes

Stop-press Documentation

These release notes cover Volocity for both Windows and Macintosh. 

Volocity version 6.3 is the last version that supports Mac OS X 10.6, Microsoft Windows XP and Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition. Support for these operating systems in future versions of Volocity will be deprecated.

Volocity versions 6.2 and above for Macintosh require Mac OS X 10.6 or above to function correctly. Mac OS X 10.7.0 is not supported and versions from Mac OS X 10.9 and above will not be supported until announced.

Volocity versions 6.0 and above require Imaging Computing Server 1.2 or above.

Volocity 5.0 and later requires a graphics card that supports OpenGL 2.0 or above, for instance an ATI X1600 series, an NVIDIA GeForce 6000 series or newer. 

Volocity is not compatible with older integrated Intel graphics adapters on Windows. Intel have reportedly fixed this problem for GMA 965 adapters and above in their latest drivers (14.36.4.5002 or newer). These graphics adapters do function properly on Mac OS X (e.g. MacBook).

Volocity versions 4.0 and above for Macintosh require Mac OS X 10.4.7 or above to function correctly.

Volocity versions 2.6 and above require Imaging License Server 1.1 or above.

Known Problems

It may not be possible to open library clippings created in Volocity 4.0 in earlier versions of Volocity.

Version 2.0

The Volocity product range has been reorganized. Volocity LE is now the free version of Volocity and does not require a dongle. Volocity Visualization, Volocity Classifier and Volocity Restoration are cost-options that require a dongle to load.

Added High-Resolution Renderer to Volocity. This renderer offers improved speed and quality, perspective rendering, overlays, multi-processor support, iso-surface rendering and many other advantages.

"XYZ" View has been merged into "Image" view

"Volume Sequencer" has been renamed "Image Sequencer" and now supports both 2D and 3D images.

The "View" menu has now gone. Instead we have a view-specific menu for each view tab (e.g. "Measurements" or "Rendering").

Added Fast Restoration module. This offers fast deconvolution of volumes.

Added Classifier module on Macintosh

Added Tracking module

Added "Illumination Correction" module for correcting lamp flicker.

Added "Voxel Spy" palette for close-up image information

Volocity now supports only the "mvd2" version 2 library format. Older libraries will be converted to the new format when opened. This format offers improved performance and reliability.

Improved export functionality, including support for automatically naming exported files.

Added 2D scale bars for 2D views. These are automatically generated from calibration information.

Added 3D scale grid for 3D views. This is automatically generated from calibration information.

Numbers for cubic and square microns are now properly superscript in Measurements table.

Added keyboard shortcuts for many toolbar items

Added keyboard shortcuts in Image view - Page-up and page-down keys can be used to move up and down between Z planes.

Added more flexible feedback options for measurements. It is now possible to change the color of individual sets of measurements and the opacity of the feedback as a whole.

Added measurements feedback to High-Resolution renderer.

Crop to selection now works on regions not just on their bounding box.

The "Split Volumes..." menu item now also splits Image Sequences.

Added "Sum" measurement. This is the "integrated density" of voxel intensities in an object.

Simplified button layout on Classifier palette

Added "Levels" dialog for performing non-destructive image enhancement.

Fixed importing of 32-bit LIFF files that have been saved from Openlab on Mac OS X

Thumbnails are now generated for both volumes and images. They are generated in the background using multiple processors if available.

Overlays (e.g. scale bars) are now properly exported into movies and snapshots.

Changed the default orientation of 3D views. The default view is looking slightly down onto the XY plane at a 10 degree angle.

Orientation of volumes in the Image, 3D Rendering and HR Rendering views is now consistent.

Renamed "Polyline" to "Line" in measurements.

Added support for updating Volocity dongles using release codes

Fixed problems reading timing information from Perkin-Elmer files.

Added support for Measurement Session Arithmetic. This allows users to perform calculations between measurements sessions (e.g. merge or colocalization).

Iso-surface generation is now done in the background. This improves the responsiveness of Volocity when making selections.

Fixed a bug in the Movie Sequencer that could cause movie sequences to play incorrectly. In particular, some zoom tasks were occasionally ignored.

Fixed problem where thresholding in the Classifier was not always working correctly.

Improved functionality and reliability of Alignment module.

Added "Orientation" indicator in 3D views

The order and size of measurement columns is now saved correctly

Improved performance of capturing OpenGL scenes to an image (e.g. in "Capture Snapshot" or when generating movies).

"Image" view now uses perspective for 3D pane. This gives an enhanced 3D effect.

It is now possible to move ROIs without performing a cut operation in both 2D and 3D views.

Reading of Zeiss LSM files is greatly improved.  We now read all calibration, time and wavelength information.

Improved editing of movie sequences

Fixed bug where compacting a version 1 library could cause a “File not found” error

Version 1.4.3

<Windows> Added support for distributed link tracking.  This feature allows Windows to find files that have been moved without user intervention.

Version 1.4.2

Fixed a problem where the User Notes view could appear as the default view for items which was confusing

Items with numbers in the name are now sorted intelligently – for instance xxx100 will be correctly sorted after xxx2.  This applies to sorting views and measurements.

Fixed a problem where scrolling an image or XYZ view with “Smooth Zoom” switched on could produce artefacts in the view.

Improved support for importing metadata from Leica TCS confocal files

Improved support for Zeiss LSM files – Volocity can now open 2 channel LSM files.

Pasting a large image into a smaller image window used to crop to the size of the destination image.  Volocity now allow floating selections that are larger than the destination image.

Added total number of measurements made to measurement summary view

Fixed a problem where Volume Sequences saved as “Clipping” files could not be re-imported

Fixed a problem where converting a “millions of colours” volume to “floating point greyscale” could produce a blank image.  The data was present but the contrast enhancement was set up incorrectly.
