Drawing Regions of Interest

You can designate an area of the drop as a "region of interest" (ROI) using the Region of Interest (ROI) tool. Once a region is defined, your imaging system will zoom in on it and image it separately from the drop the next time that drop is imaged.

The boxes in the ROI tool show you the actual photographable area for each imaging type, which is limited by the constraints of the hardware for each imaging method.

Each imaging type is represented by different colors. You may or may not see some of these colors depending on the hardware in your system.


Color of ROI Box Light Path
Red Visible
Violet Ultraviolet (UV)
White Imaging is disabled for the ROI. You must enable it to continue photographing the ROI.

When viewing images in ROCK MAKER, you can zoom in on a region by selecting it from the Region list on the strip navigator above your image. You can also select custom Imaging Settings for the region.
