@olibclarke Please can you post screenshots of the Inputs and Parameters tab’s Inputs sections of the extraction job you mentioned.
Are all the extraction jobs you mentioned descendants of the same run of the same motion correction job?
@olibclarke looks like the CTFFIND job somehow lost the background_blob input that should have been passed through from the motion correction job. Not sure how this happened, but you should be able to fix it by dragging the Patch CTF job’s background_blob input into the Extraction job’s micrographs slot:
Thanks - I already have a workaround (running the extraction from Patch CTF mics and replacing the CTF slot with the one from CTFFIND) - it just seems like a bug that the background_blob is not being generated by CTFFIND. I wasn’t doing anything unusual, just running CTFFIND with default parameters after Patch Motion
Please continue to use this workaround for now as we were unable to reproduce the problem on our end.
Please send us a direct message if you have minimal set of inputs that you could share with us and with which we could reproduce the problem.
