vec2mat(FILENAME) converts any PIVMat compatible vector field or image
matching FILENAME into Mat-files. When used with DaVis files, the
resulting Mat files may be re-used under systems without the ReadIMX
The output filenames are given by the input filenames, except that the
original suffix is replaced by '.mat'. All file formats accepted by
loadvec are accepted (VEC/VC7/IMX/IM7/IMG/TXT/DAT/SET). Wildcards (*)
and brackets () may be used (see loadvec).
The resulting MAT-Files can be reloaded using loadvec, using
V = loadvec('B00001.mat'))
or directly using the MATLAB's LOAD function:
(this syntax creates the variable V in the current workspace).
See loadvec for the definition of the structure V.
vec2mat(FILENAME, DEST) converts the files to destination folder DEST.
By default, the current directory is used as destination.
vec2mat(FILENAME, DEST, 'verbose') also displays the work in progres.
vec2mat, without input argument, converts all the DaVis files of the
current directory into MAT files.
Reloading MAT-Files converted by vec2mat instead of loading the
original DaVis files saves time (up to a factor 10). It may also be
useful to further process the files on platforms which do not support
the ReadIMX package.
vec2mat('dir*/*.vec') converts all the vec files in the directories
matching 'dir*' into MAT-files. These files may be further loaded
vec2mat('B[1:100].vc7', 'Z:/MyResults/', 'verbose')
loadvec, LOAD, rdir.
