The Fibernavigator is a tool designed for a fast and versatile visualization of streamline datasets.
Welcome new users
You can find pre-built versions (Windows, OSX) containing all the latest tools on the Releases page.

New rs-fMRI and real-time fiber tractography tutorials soon available: Tutorial Page. New video tutorials of the Fibernavigator are available.
- Scene navigation: how to interact with the 3D view, move planes, etc.
- Mesh display and interaction: how to create and modify the display of meshes.
- Drawing tool: how to draw on empty or already existing anatomies.
- Fiber navigation: how to interact with fibers and select a subset of them.
- Opacity rendering: how to generate orientation-dependent opacity rendering.
- Real-time fiber tracking: how to generate streamlines in real-time.
- Real-time resting-state fMRI: how to generate resting-state networks in real-time.
