NAME

slicer2MOTL - convert Slicer (Z-Y-X) angles to motive list Euler angles  

SYNOPSIS

slicer2MOTL
slicer2MOTL inputFilename outputFilename
slicer2MOTL inputFilename outputFilename flgInvert  

DESCRIPTION

Slicer2MOTL converts one or more Z-Y-X Slicer angles (in degrees) to the Z-X-Z Euler angles required for a motive list entry, and will either print the results or save them to an output motive list file. If no arguments are supplied, the program will prompt the user for Slicer angles, and will display the Euler angles corresponding to the inverse rotation. Conversely, if input and output filenames are provided (and are not null strings), results will be written to an output motive list.

Input Slicer angles are assumed to be those required to rotate the particle(s) to the desired reference orientation. Since the motive list reflects the rotation required to rotate the reference to match the particle(s), slicer2MOTL computes Z-X-Z Euler angles corresponding to the inverse transform by default. If the uninverted transform is desired, set flgInvert to 0.

inputFilename (optional)
is the path to the coma-separated-value file containing Slicer angles to be converted and stored in motive list format. Input Slicer angles should be listed in the order X-Y-Z, even though they would be applied in the order Z-Y-X.
outputFilename (optional)
is the name to which the output motive list will be written.
flgInvert (optional, default = 1)
If 0, Euler angles corresponding to the transform specified by the input Slicer angles (rather than its inverse) will be output.
