I have previously asked an as yet unanswered question about how to fix an issue with slow import of multigigabyte TIFF image stacks: Slow import of multigigabyte TIF image stacks.
I've been attempting a work-around for this problem by using ImageJ to unpack my TIFF stacks into a directory of files with names of the form "TestStack0001.tif", "TestStack0002.tif", and so forth. I've uploaded an example here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/hsix254u4046uhz/EundGlze43 (please ignore the apparently faulty preview images!).
Is there a simple way for me to import all of the files in this directory, treating the images as sequential elements in an array? Since I'm hoping to ultimately do this for directories with tens of thousands of files, is there a way of doing this without a slowdown as a function of the directory size?
