I saw this post a month ago or so and I am wondering about the same thing:
I have horizontal images in really nice resolution but they are spaced quite a lot 2mm!
Now interest is to preserve the horizontal details but somehow smoothen the transition in one axis from one slice to another.
That way it will not look like a stacked one upon another high res images but indeed will look like 1 model. Sure details will theoretically alwazs be missing in that axis but who cares if it looks nice?! right?
However this what Mustafa wrote is not understandable for me.
I think I figured out the way in 3ds max how to do this… to lock the information in 2 axis and just modify objects in 1 axis. But one would require license and where I do internship not allowed to use illegal license software.
I gave a solution here that preserves all details in-plane and interpolates smoothly in between. I would recommend to use this very carefully, because it may make the result look higher resolution than it actually is and therefore potentially mislead users.
The correct solution is to acquire proper images that contain all the details you need.
Helo Lassoan, since I was unable to get the SmartFilters to work yet, I can not tell exactly if I want this solution or not.
My main objective is exactly that, once exported as OBJ, it should look prettier. Whether information in between is missing or not is completely irrelevant for this case.
But I don’t know what these “filters” are since can’t get them to run. Maybe they are just some illusion and once exported as OBJ it would still look the same?!
First have to try to make this SmartFilters work but yes, what you have described is exactly what I need, the problem is that images are not segmented manually but with threshold. We cannot tell threshold to skip the slices gained through interpolation.
Don’t worry about the filters, you don’t need them (they would produce much worse looking result). Just insert blank slices between the segmented ones, convert to segmentation, and fill the gaps using “Fill between slices”.
I can not choose which slice spacing to make because these scans were already made and images processed somehow for some purposes. I am just doing my part here and then have to present a couple of dozens of segmentations somewhere and that is it. Normally I do not need to make them look pretty.
