Additional Information

  • Bio-Formats will recognize a *metadata.txt file as part of a Micro-Manager fileset if pointed at it and will load the fileset including the companion TIFF files.

  • If pointed at a companion .ome.tif file, Bio-Formats will recognize an OME-TIFF format instead. This means it may load the fileset if there are multiple .ome.tif but it will not include *metadata.txt in this fileset and therefore the extended Micro-Manager metadata will be skipped.

  • See Micro-Manager for more information.
