NAME

MOTL2Slicer - convert Z-X-Z Euler angles to Z-Y-X "Slicer" angles  

SYNOPSIS

MOTL2Slicer
MOTL2Slicer inputFilename outputFilename  

DESCRIPTION

MOTL2Slicer converts one or more Z-X-Z Euler angles (in degrees) to the corresponding Z-Y-X Slicer angles, and will either print the results or save them to an output file in comma separated value format. If no arguments are supplied, the program will prompt the user for Euler angles, and will display the corresponding Slicer angles. Conversely, if input and output filenames are provided, results will be read from and written to these files. Input files can be in either of 2 formats. If every line of the input file contains 3 comma separated values, each line will be taken as Z1, X, and Z2 angles in degrees. Alternatively, if every line after the first contains 20 comma separated values, the file will be assumed to be a motive list, and Z1, X, and Z2 will be taken from columns 17, 19, and 18, respectively.

The output Slicer angles will correspond to the same transform as the input Euler angles. (This is in contrast to slicer2MOTL, where the inverse of the original transform is computed). If Slicer angles corresponding to the inverse transform are desired, simply replace Z1, X, and Z2 by -Z2, -X, and -Z1.

inputFilename (optional)
is the path to either a motive list or a coma separated value file with 3 columns containing the Z-X-Z Euler angles tp be converted.
outputFilename (optional)
is the name to which the output Slicer angles will be written. Note that Slicer angles are written in the order X (1st), Y (2nd), and Z (3rd) even though they are to be applied in the order Z-Y-X.
