Import mics from different folders

Hi all,
this should be possible, I just didnt figure out how yet:
How can I import micrographs that are stored in several subdirectories? So far I copied all files into a new directory and used *.mrc. How can I leave files in their subdirectories?

So I created links to all files in a new folder
ln -s GridSquare_*/Data/*.mrc Outputfolder

However, cryosparc doesnt seem to find them, I get the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “cryosparc_master/cryosparc_compute/”, line 96, in
File “/home/gpuser/cryospark/cryosparc_worker/cryosparc_compute/jobs/imports/”, line 852, in run_import_movies_or_micrographs
datashape, data_format = read_movie_header(abs_path, extn,
File “/home/gpuser/cryospark/cryosparc_worker/cryosparc_compute/jobs/imports/”, line 702, in read_movie_header
with open(abs_path) as mrc_file:
FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘XXX.mrc’


You can use folder-level wildcard in the the path for micrograph import in the cryoSPARC job.

For example: /path/directory/*/Data/*mrc

Ok, thats easier. Thanks!

In addition or as an alternative to

you may also connect outputs from more than just one Import Movies jobs to a single Patch Motion Correction or similar job
