The new Orbit version 2.8 comes with a brand new masking functionality. It allows you to define ‘active region’ classes within a classification model or use a segmentation model to define the segmented objects as ‘active’ and then do another classification or segmentation inside these active regions. This functionality unveils the power of Orbit for things which before only could be done with scripts. Details are described in the mask tutorial.

Classification applied only inside masked areas defined by a segmentation model. Classification model and segmentation model have different channel sets active.
