Cylinder projection

The cylinder projection is typically used to project intensities from a spherical or cylindrical sample into a 2D image.


How to use a cylinder projection on your data

When applying cylinder projections to image stacks, a rigid dransform in advance is helpful to have control of the position and tilt of your sample in projected space.

Half-cylinder projection

If just half of a sample was imaged, you may want to apply a half-cylinder projection. In the maximum projection, full-cylinder projections of half-embryos also look suspicious:


You can turn a full-cylinder projection by changing the center of the transform and the number of angles to 180 or the angle step to 0.5 degrees.
