We'd like to implement the following type of multi-dimensional acquisition protocol:
For each stage position:
- Acquire 500 frames as fast as possible (0 delay) using one channel/illumination
- Switch channels and acquire another 500 frames with 0 delay using the second channel/illumination
- Move to the next stage position and repeat
This doesn't appear to be natively supported in Micro-Manager, as there is no "Position, Channel, Time" order of acquisition option. Am I mistaken about this? Thought it was worth asking
before I go try to figure out how to write my own acquisition script.
In case I do end up having to write something custom, I'd be grateful for any suggestions on where to start, or (better yet) if anyone could share code that does something similar.
