The typical use of this module is the creation of an animated fly-through of a structure such as the colon. With this module you can use interactively selected fiducial points as the control points for a 3D curve. This curve defines the flight path of the camera. The camera's speed and field of view can be controlled during playback.
Create a model
- Segment the target anatomy (colon, airways, etc.) using the Editor module or other segmentation tools
- Create a surface model using the Model Maker module
- Modify the generated model in the Models module: turn of Culling of Backface (to allow visualization of the inside of the surface)
Create a fly-through path
- Create a path model as a spline interpolation of a set of fiducial points.
- Pick the Camera to be modified by the path and the Fiducial List defining the control points.
- Clicking "Create path" will make a path model and enable the flythrough panel.
View the fly-through
- Turn off visibility of the fiducials in the Annotations module (so that they don't obstruct the view)
- You can manually scroll though the path with the Frame slider.
- The Play/Pause button toggles animated flythrough.
- The Frame Skip slider speeds up the animation by skipping points on the path.
- The Frame Delay slider slows down the animation by adding more time between frames.
- The View Angle provides is used to approximate the optics of an endoscopy system.
