Node focus in views
Presenter location: In-person
- Kyle Sunderland (Queen's University, Canada)
3D software applications often provide feedback mechanisms for selecting objects and showing users which objects they have selected, or are interacting with. This allows some visualizations to be hidden when the object is not in focus.
This project aims to implement a similar node selection system in 3D Slicer, allowing users to:
- See the nodes that they are hovering over or interacting with in the various subject hierarchy trees or node selectors.
- Select nodes by clicking on them in one of the views.
If you would like to offer suggestions or feedback on the current prototype, then come see me in-person.
Approach and Plan
- Continue development of the node focus infrastructure.
- Get feedback from hands-on use to better improve the implementation.
- Improve visualization and performance.
Progress and Next Steps
- Prototype implementation can be found here: https://github.com/Sunderlandkyl/Slicer/tree/focus_node_prototype
- Improve rendering of volumes + hard selection.
- Implement picking of node types other than markups.
