image.makecomplex - Function

1.1.1 Make a complex image


Description

This function combines the current image with another image to make a complex image. The current image (i.e. that associated with this Image tool is assumed to be the Real image). You supply the Imaginary image; it must be disk-based at this time.

The output image cannot be associated with an Image tool (does not handle Complex images yet) and so the best you can do is write it to disk. The Viewer can view it.
