Drift Correction

The precision of the drift correction has been improved in this release.

The figure above shows the Surpass object tree with Track2 selected. Track 2 is shown below and has been computed from an object which only moves because of stage drift and does not show any real motion.

Clicking on "Correct Drift" will translate the entire image in such a way that the blue object being tracked above remains stationary in the corrected image.


  • Movie showing the original time series before correction (MPG, 333 kB)
  • Movie showing the corrected image (MGP, 410 kB)
