Can't load .m file extensions to add XTensions to Imaris
 

I am not really sure myself where to start. I understand that to load the .m files as XTensions I would have to add the folder containing the XTensions to the "Custom Tools" list. After doing this however, the .m files appear grey in the toolbar and are unclickable. Am I missing a step? Do I need to link Matlab somehow to Imaris? If so, how would I link Matlab to Imaris? Do I need the full Matlab or can I simply use the runtime compiler?

-Thanks!

 Hi David,

   Yes, you do need to link Matlab (or the runtime) to Imaris. If the XTension is compiled you only need the runtime (if not you will need the full Matlab; by the way *all* XTensions we ship with the Imaris installation are compiled). Have a look at this Tutorial (http://www.bitplane.com/learning/integrate-a-xtension-downloaded-from-the-imaris-open-page-within-imaris-tutorial). Let us know if the tutorial covered all your questions. Thanks!

Is it possible to compile the XTensions that weren't originally shipped with Imaris?

 Yes, but you would need to have the full Matlab (in case the XTension was written with/for Matlab) in order to do it. Do you have an non-compiled XTension you would like to use?

Yes, I would like to use the Batch Process XTension. It is not compiled however.

Have you tried to contact the author of that XTension (Pierre Pouchin)? That may be the shortest path to getting a compiled version of that cool XTension - then you can use it just with the Runtime (no need for the full Matlab).

Hi,

I'm sorry for not responding earlier...

The problem is that, unfortunately, we don't have a Matlab compiler license...
Maybe I could try "Octave".
The problem is that the batch script only runs *.m files, so that wouldn't change anything.

I really should learn Python...

To call Xtension A from inside XtensionB, do the following:matlab call python: system('python (Xtension name) (argument: the imaris application ID, default is 0)
python call matlab:
something similar : run matlab.exe (Xtension name) (argument: the imaris application ID, default is 0)
