Output of Normalized Images
« on: 2018 December 15 06:48:59 »
Is it currently possible to output the intermediate normalized images that PI generates (internally) in ImageIntegration?

This is would be the normalization that occurs just before the chosen rejection method. I understand that it is possible
to see the output of LocalNormalized images. However, I do not see a way to output the more general normalized images
using Scale+Offset or EqualizeFluxes.

Thanks,
Adam

Hi Adam,

Judging by the number of people who have viewed your post (myself included) and the current zero-response to your query, perhaps re-phrasing your question, or demonstrating mor clearly (perhaps with examples) what it is that you are looking for might help someone to answer you.

i think his question is clear... i think what he is asking for is just not possible. the normalized images (or sections of images) are probably just held in memory.

Hi Niall,

Yes, I have not been entirely clear in the reason- though I do think the request is clear.
I am looking to work with the normalized images for a number of reasons- one of them is to reproduce the rejection methods. I should be able to show how the different methods work from the normalized images. In addition, seeing the normalized images will also give some insight in to weighting schemes.

At the moment I cannot demonstrate how the various rejection algorithms work without the normalized images. It is something of a black box at the moment.

If it isn't possible, that is the answer. I was hoping there was a means to output this (since it is possible for LN files).
