Interacting with Slice Data

The following explains how to interact with slices using your mouse and available buttons in the Amira Viewer window.

To Pan a given object either vertically or horizontally: Click and hold the tracker ball on the mouse and drag your slide to the desired location. This may also be achieved by clicking the pan button (top left of screen, looks like a hand on top of 4 arrows) and then clicking and dragging your slide.

To Move through sequential slices: roll your mouse tracker ball forward or backward to move through the data set


NOTE: When in Segmentation mode, you can select which materials you would like to have appear as coloured outlines on the 2D data slices. To do this check or uncheck the box under 2D corresponding to your desired material in the Materials list.

Interacting with 3D Data

The following explains how to interact with a constructed 3D model using buttons in the Amira Viewer window or your Mouse. This applies to both 3D view in segmentation and pool modes.

To Pan an object without altering its orientation: click and hold the tracker ball on the mouse and drag your slide to the desired location. This may also be achieved by clicking the pan button (top left of screen, looks like a hand on top of 4 arrows) and then clicking and dragging your slide.

To Zoom in our out: roll the tracker ball forward or backward or click the zoom button (top left of screen, looks like a double ended white arrow) then clicking your 3D data set and moving your mouse forward or backwards.

To Rotate your 3D object in space: click the left mouse button and move your mouse to orient the object as desired. If this doesn't work, click the rotate button (top left of screen, looks like a hand on top of 2 curved arrows) then try clicking on your object again.


NOTE: When in Segmentation mode, you can select which materials you would like to have appear in the 3D window. To do this check or uncheck the box under 3D corresponding to your desired material in the Materials list.
