Introduction and Acknowledgements
Scene views are a convenience tool for organizing multiple 'live views' of the data in your scene.
You can create any number of views and control parameters such as the 3D view, model visibility, window layout, and other parameters.
This can be used to set up a series of predefined starting points for looking at portions of your data in detail.
For example, you may have one overview scene which shows an external view of the body along with interior views with the skin surface turned off and slice planes visible to highlight a tumor location.
WARNING: The scene views are designed to be different views of the same set of data. Adding or removing data (volumes, models etc) so that different scene views have different sets of data (MRML nodes) in them will result in unexpected behaviour. The recommended way of working with scene views is to load all of your data first, then to create scene views by hiding or showing the different elements. You can easily toggle the visibility of all of the models in the scene using the Models module, so you can use that to turn them all off and then selectively show the ones relevant to your scene view.
Most frequently used for these scenarios:
- Use Case 1: This can be used to set up a series of predefined starting points for looking at portions of your data in detail. For example, you may have one overview scene which shows an external view of the body along with interior views with the skin surface turned off and slice planes visible to highlight a tumor location.
- Use Case 2: To compare the output of algorithms.
| Click on the camera to create a new scene view. It pops up a screen capture window that allows you to associate an image with the scene view.
You can choose to save an image of the full layout, just the 3D view or just one of the slice views. You can also add a description and change the name.
| As scene views are saved, they appear in the Create and Edit box and the count is incremented next to the camera. Click on the image thumbnail or the description to edit the image, name, description.
You can delete a scene view by pressing the garbage can button. To restore a scene view, taking the program back to the state it was in when you saved that scene view, click on the green arrow restore button.
|You can also save and restore scene views and screen snapshots from the Capture toolbar.|
The scene views are saved in the MRML file, via the File->Save menu.
