PIVlab update 2.2

New features / enhancements:
  • New and enhanced correlation algorithm (linear correlation instead of circular correlation). Details here.
  • Correlation quality dropdown menu:
    • Normal: Circular correlation, linear window deformation
    • Better: Circular correlation, spline window deformation
    • High: Linear correlation, spline window deformation
    • Extreme: Linear correlation, spline window deformation, repeated correlation
  • Suggestion for selecting an appropriate interrogation area size. Works by trying to count the amount of texture / particles and calculating the maximum displacement. PIVlab will try to suggest settings so that every window contains sufficient texture / particles and the displacement is not too large.
  • Quick acces toolbar for the most important PIVlab functions. Will not be displayed if there is not enough space in PIVlab's program window.
  • Automatic histogram limiting and stretching works now seperately for both images of a frame. This accounts better for unevenly illuminated images
  • Synthtic image generator now saves an additional file with information on the real displacement of every pixel
  • Added "Analyze current frame" button in PIV settings tab. Makes it easier to play with the settings and to see the effects instantly
  • Added x and y image coordinates when exporting data from polylines / circles
  • In addition to the existing possibility of calculating mean velocities over time, you can now also calculate the sum of velocities / displacement

Bug fixes:
  • PDF file export fixed
