Filament tracing job not picking particles with filament diameters over 500Å

Dear all, I’m trying to set up a filament tracing job with tubes that have diameters over 500Å. However, the job is not picking any particles at all even after having a 2D class template. When I indicate the filament diameter of 500Å for our tubes, it doesn’t automatically pick the particles, although when given a smaller filament diameter ~130Å it runs smoothly, but just choosing portions within the tubes, instead of the whole tubes. Does this type of job account for such big tubes?

Hi @atornes,

Thanks for reporting, we haven’t done much testing with processing very large filaments! This is interesting behaviour – would you be able to post some of the diagnostic plots that are written to the streamlog, along with the accompanying micrographs? You can certainly direct message these to me if you would rather not post them publicly. As well, it would be helpful for us to know which parameters the job was run (or if it was with all defaults).

Best,
Michael

Hello Michael,

I tried reaching out privately, but it seems that as I am a new user in cryoSPARC discuss, I cannot send a direct message to you. Thanks again for offering to help with this issue. This is the error I am getting:
