(09/25/06)

PURPOSE

Determine shift parameters to align a set of single tilt images based on coordinates of markers on the images.   Example.

USAGE

.OPERATION: MK

.PREFIX OF MARKER DOC FILES: D_ROT***
[Enter the prefix of the document files containing the X,Y coordinates of the marker positions.]

.FILE NUMBERS: 1-61
[Enter the range of file numbers of the marker document files to be used.]

.REFERENCE FILE NUMBER: 31
[Enter the number of the file which will be treated as a reference. Usually it is the file containing markers for the 0-degree projection.]

.X & Y IMAGE DIMENSIONS: 900, 900
[Enter the X & Y dimensions of the images on which you picked the markers.]

.REFINE SCALE (VS REFERENCE)? (Y/N): Y
['Y' - scale will be modified, 'N' - scale will be set to 1.]

.REFINE TILT ANGLE (VS REFERENCE)? (Y/N): N
['Y' - tilt angle will be modified, 'N' - tilt angle will remain as read from the marker document files.]

.REFINE IN-PLANE ROTATION? (Y/N): Y
[Y - in-plane rotation (psi angle) will be modified, N - in-plane rotation (psi angle) will be set to 0.]

.REFINE SHIFT (VS REFERENCE)? (Y/N): Y
['Y' - shift will be modified, 'N' - shift will be set to 0.]

.USE PREVIOUS CORRECTIONS? (Y/N): N
[If 'N' - next question will be skipped.]

If use previous corrections then the corrections from the previous run will be used as a starting point, in this case SPIDER asks:

.CORRECTIONS INPUT DOC FILE: CCA002
[Enter the name of the corrections document file from the previous run.]

.FULL OUTPUT (Y/N): N
[Enter 'Y' to have information about all the markers (errors per marker in 2D) stored in the results files.]

If 'Y', SPIDER asks:

.PREFIX OF X,Y PREDICTED COORD OUTPUT FILES: OPC***
[Enter the prefix of output document files in which predicted coordinates will be stored. In columns 1 and 2, the original (X,Y) coordinates is stored. In columns 3 and 4, the predicted marker coordinates is stored. In the fifth column, the error of each marker is stored.]

.ERROR PER VIEW OUTPUT DOC FILE: VIEW_ERROR
[Enter the name of the document file in which the errors per view will be stored. Under key=-1 the total error will be stored.
Enter "*" if you do not want this file to be produced.]

.ERROR PER MARKER OUTPUT DOC FILE: POINT_ERROR
[Enter the name of the document file in which the errors per marker will be stored. Under key=-1 the total error will be stored.
Enter "*" if you do not want this file to be produced.]

.CORRECTIONS OUTPUT DOC FILE: CCA002
[Enter the name of the document file in which the corrections to align the tilt images will be stored (see note #3).]

.3-D COORDS OUTPUT DOC FILE: CRA002
[Enter the name of the document file in which the 3-D coordinates (X,Y,Z) of the markers will be stored.]

NOTES

  1. There is a limit of 100 markers and 300 views.

  2. Input document files must have markers coordinates stored X - first column, Y - second column. The number of markers has to be exactly the same in all the input document files. The order of markers coordinates has to be the same in all the input document files (i.e. marker #3 has to be stored under key #3 in all the document files.
    The original tilt angle (theta) has to be stored in the input document files in the second column of key#-1 (key line commented out).

  3. The document file with the corrections has the following format:
    Column 1 - scale
    Column 2 - tilt angle (theta)
    Column 3 - in-plane rotation angle (psi)
    Column 4 - x-shift
    Column 5 - y-shift
    The following procedure shows how the corrections are applied to the projections:
     
              [zero] = 0.0 
              DO [n]=1,61 
                 UD IC  [n], [scale],[theta],[psi],[x],[y] 
                   docfile 
                 ; Modify the projections 
                 RT SQ 
                   img_{***[n]} 
                   rotimg_{***[n]} 
                   [psi],[scale]  
                   [x],[y]  
                 ; Store new theta angle in the angular doc file 
                 ; as required by 'bp w2' or 'bp 3d'. 
                 ; Note: the theta angle is usually not refined, so 
                 ; this step is normally skipped. 
                 SD [n],[zero],[theta],[zero] 
                   anglesdocfile
