Hello,

I am using Volocity through a dongle and saving the .acff files on my computer as library clippings. I like this format because it keeps information on the exposure times and other information on the hardware. Now that I have transfered these .acff files to another computer, I need to bring them back to the old computer to view them since I don't have the .acff file reader. I am therefore writing on this page to see if somebody has a solution.

The a page on the Volocity website say that there is Volocity LE for viewing these files without using the dongle.

http://cellularimaging.perkinelmer.com/support/dr_simon_vipoir/detail.php?id=50

Does this version of Volocity still exist and is available to the public? If yes, does Perkin Elmer still offer the download file.

Any help on viewing the .acff files out of Volocity would be helpfull.

I am sorry there was no reply to this. At the time of your writing there wasn't a free version available. But now there might be the option of a free viewer version through new Volocity owners Quorum Inc. Please take a look at this other forum posting here for details:

Hello Jace,

p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 12.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Verdana}

Thanks for the hint. I was able to get a download on the file, but the problem is that we need to buy the new Volocity 6.5. I am running with a lower Volocity at 5.4.1 and it sucks to always have to use the dongle to view my .acff files that I took. It's too bad Perkin Elmer is not releasing their Lite Viewer that they had in the past. The code is written and the software once existed so wouldn't it be just a question of putting it on their webpage? Anyhow it would make the user experience much better if they released this viewer.

Hi,

You could alwasy try ImageJ with the Bio-Formats plugin:

Volocity Library Clipping is listed at least:
