For example in standard case the following directories should have write permissions:

Fiji: Failed to retrieve Exception Message

If the Failed to retrieve Exception Message error appears, please increase the heap space for the Java VM in Matlab, see details here.

For example, rendering of 1818x1022x717 volume requires 4Gb heap size.
