For Focus/Grab modes: displays time, in seconds, since start of acquisition. For Loop mode (self-triggered): displays countdown from specified Interval to start of next Acq For Loop mode (external Start Triggering): displays time since last Acq was externally triggered.
Sets stem of filename to be saved for next or ongoing GRAB/LOOP acquisition. The Acquisition # is appended to specified Basename to create the full filename, e.g. file_001.tif in example shown.
Sets number to append to specified Basename to create the full filename. Value is automatically incremented at end of each GRAB or LOOP mode Acq Value can also be: - incremented by an external Next File Marker signal - edited manually
Increment Acquisition # by 1.
Launch dialog to select save directory to which files are saved.
Determines whether disk logging functionality is enabled during GRAB/LOOP acquisitions.
Specifies # of frames to average together before appending single (averaged) frame to current log file. Value > 1 implies file averaging is enabled.
File averaging capability is separate from the display Rolling Average specified in Image Controls File averaging implies data reduction: raw data is lost and file size is reduced
Specifies the number of frames to be saved to a single .tif file. Appends full filename to indicate the number of files associated with a set of frames, e.g. file_001_001.tif, file_001_002.tif if the frames from a single acquisition are saved to two separate files.
Sets and maintains the number of frames per file to the number of frames per acquisition.
Toggles on/off overwrite warning message. By default the acquisition counter will update based on the highest number detected on the end of file already located in the logging directory. There is nothing stopping users from changing this number to something lower which will overwrite data already present with the same base name and acquisition number. Enabling this warning will cause a dialog box to appear if you change the base name or acquisition # in such a way that you might overwrite data.
The Fast Configurations window,
