Multithread support for basic manual tracing tools?
Hello,

I've been using Vaa3D on Windows 10 for a few months now, and I've noticed that many of the basic functions for neuron editing are not configured for parallel processing on a multi-core CPU. This means that only one core on our lab's 7-core machines are being used during manual tracing, which causes some tools to be very slow. This is especially true for the "Series of right-clicks to define a 3D curve" and the "1-right-stroke to define a 3D curve (global optimal)" tools, which tend to be more accurate. 

I noticed that there was some previous work on a multithread imaging-opening tool that was eventually scrapped. Would it be possible to introduce multithread support for the two manual tracing tools I mentioned? It would greatly help our lab's throughput for manual tracing.

Thank you,

Threaded View
