Stax: stax processes multiprobe stacks of confocal micrographs in BioRad .pic format. It can merge three channels, assigning arbitrary colors, and make stereo pair movies of 3-D reconstructions. stax includes parameter-controlled image processing filters which you can arrange in chains interactively, then tune all the parameters to pick out features you want by selecting among random mutants of the currently best tunings. The example movies above demonstrate stereo viewing and fly-throughs; these movies and sample BioRad stacks are bundled for download below. This program made many of the 3D reconstructions on this web site. (Odell)
