The Analysis method refers to the type of data to be extracted from an image. As with Data Conditioning operators, named settings can be used to apply the desired analysis.
This function works differently than the Data Conditioning section because all changes to the settings in the Analysis function must be done outside of the recipe. Clicking the Edit button will display a notice to exit the recipe and change the settings within the recipe controls in the ProfilmOnline image viewer. Once analysis settings are set, click Edit Recipe and click Save As to save the analysis settings as a named setting for future use, and for sharing with other recipes.
Note, only one Analysis function may be active in the recipe at a given time. To apply different types of analysis to the same image, create different recipes (e.g., one for Step Height, and another for Area Roughness) then switch between them.
