Problems and Solutions
We work constantly on improving the Fiji and KNIME plugins. Help us doing so by letting us know if you encounter problems.
- Problem: on a Linux machine ClearVolume would not start but throw an ugly exception like
java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError at clearvolume.renderer.opencl.OpenCLAvailability....
- Solution: you might not have OpenCL installed or your installation is corrupted.
- On Ubuntu the following instructions turned out to be useful for some of our users: http://askubuntu.com/questions/541114/how-to-make-opencl-work-on-14-10-nvidia-331-89-drivers
- Problem: on a Mac, after ClearVolume opens in Fiji I see a large grey area where the 3D viewer should be.
- Solution: we work on a fix... so far, double click on the grey area to switch to full screen, then double click again to go back to window mode.

Installing ClearVolume in Fiji or ImageJ2
- Download Fiji or ImageJ2 from here.
- Start Fiji/ImageJ2 and launch the updater (Help - Update...)
- Click on Manage update sites, tick the box next to ClearVolume, and hit Close.
- If you use an older Fiji installation you MUST also check and install the Java-8 update site. For more recent Fiji installations this update site will already be selected.
- Confirm the update/installation by clicking Apply changes and restart Fiji/ImageJ as suggested by the updater.
Other ways to use ClearVolume
- The ClearVolume team provides a plugin for KNIME Image Processing. See this page for details.
- The original purpose of ClearVolume is to bring live volumetric rendering to modern microscopy. Please check the wiki on GibHub for detailed informations.
