Global Configuration



  • Exposure normalization for images: When checked (default value), the Normalize exposure will automatically be activated for HDRI image. This means that even if the analysis was saved with normalization disabled (or Clarify enabled), visionCATS will enforce that the normalization is enabled. If you don’t want this behavior, you can uncheck this option.

  • Exposure normalization range on track: Select the default track for exposure normalization, depending on your needs.

  • TLC Visualizer 2 use the same reference point as a TLC Scanner 3/4: By default, you should put the plate in TLC Visualizer 2 application line first. If you are also looking inside the TLC Visualizer 2, it may be easier to disable this functionality, to be able to put the plate front first.
