IceImarisConnector

IceImarisConnector is a simple commodity class that eases communication between Bitplane Imaris and MATLAB using the Imaris XT interface.

Installation

Download or clone IceImarisConnector to your computer.

Simple installation

Please notice: from Imaris 7.6.3 on, you must add the IceImarisConnector root folder to the MATLAB path!

Copy the @IceImarisApplication subfolder to the Imaris XT folder.

In Windows:

C:\Program Files\Bitlane\Imaris 7.x.y\XT\matlab

On Mac OS X:

/Applications/Imaris 7.x.y.app/Contents/SharedSupport/XT/matlab

where 7.x.y represents current Imaris version.

This way, Imaris will find IceImarisConnector when launching XTensions.

NOTE: It is recommended to add the Imaris XT folder to the MATLAB path to make it easier to write and debug XTensions from MATLAB.

More flexible installation

Using MATLABStarter, you can keep IceImarisConnector anywhere you like on your file system. This is particularly useful if you want to keep your git repository intact, or if you want to add IceImarisConnector to your existing MATLAB library and make us of external dependencies in your XTensions.

IMARISPATH environment variable

IceImarisConnector is clever enough to find Imaris if Imaris itself is installed in the standard locations.

If more than one Imaris installation is found, IceImarisConnector will pick the latest to work with.

In case you want to use an older Imaris version, or you installed Imaris in a non-standard location, you have to tell IceImarisConnector where to find the desired installation. You can do that by setting the environment variable IMARISPATH to point to the Imaris root folder (e.g. C:\Program Files\Bitlane\Imaris 7.5.2).

MATLAB path setting

Alternatively, you could set MATLAB's path to include the IceImarisConnector directory. To do this, open MATLAB and use the Set Path... entry in the File menu. In the dialog, click on Add Folder... and add the path to your git clone (e.g. C:\Devel\IceImarisConnector).

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
