ImageVis3D Mobile is a mobile volume rendering application that allows you visualize and share your data while you are on the go. With ImageVis3D and ImageVis3D Mobile one can transfer their own data directly from a desktop to a mobile device. ImageVis3D supports all iPod touches and iPhones (including the new iPhone 3Gs). You can download the application via the Apple App Store or request a pre-release from the ImageVis3D team.

Quickstart Instructions

When you start ImageVis3D Mobile it will automatically load your last data set (or one of the demo datasets if you start it for the first time). To interact with the data simply use one finger to rotate and two fingers to zoom in or out. The four buttons on the bottom (from left to right) allow you to view your data; switch the data set and upload new data from your desktop version of ImageVis3D; edit the transfer function; and change settings (note that lighting is only available on the new iPhone 3GS).

Uploading Data

Since ImageVis3D Mobile 2.0 we use a different mechanism than before of transfering data from ImageVis3D to ImageVis3D Mobile, please see the manual at here for details.

Windows Firewall

On Windows you may see a message from the built-in firewall asking you to allow or deny ImageVis3D access to the network. You must allow ImageVis3D access for data transfer to work. After allowing ImageVis3D access, you must click on 'start' again to actually start the network server.

Date exchange from mobile device to mobile device

Note: this feature is disabled in Version 2.0 but will return in the next release 2.1

ImageVis3D Mobile also allows you to transfer data directly from one mobile device to the other if both devices support bluetooth. To transfer data simply select "Exchange with other Device" from the "Select Dataset" view on both devices. In the popup window connect to your peer, and finally select the dataset to be transferred on the source device.

The Transfer Function Editor

Since Version 1.1 the transfer function editor is not in a separate tab anymore but rendered as an overlay over the actual data. To start it simply double tab on the dataset, In the transfer function editor you can draw the transfer function for red, green, blue, and the opacity just like in ImageVis3D. Use the square in the top left corner to toggle the component you want to edit. To return to the main screen hit the screen with two fingers.
