I am using cryosparc 2.4.6 and have trouble importing particles from relion3.
I extracted particles in relion and imported the particles and the star file to cryosparc v2.
Particles where extracted as black-on-white and are depicted with inversion contrast in cryosparc. So that seems to work fine.
But, I would rather like to import white-on-black since that is the usually way for other software packages. I played around with the option dark-on-light / light-on-dark and differntly inverted particles, but it seems like cryosparc really requires black-on-white particles and does the inversion internally. Could it be that the option dark-on-light / LoD is not properly working?
However, once I use these particles for either 2D or ab-initio I recieve the following error:

I realized that this problem only exists when several mrcs stacks are used. Once I assembled of particles into one large mrcs stack (using particle_preproc) I can perform the the processing in cryo sparc. However, I would rather keep the organization of mrcs-stack per micrograph for bookkeeping reasons.
To sum up:
Is it possible to import mrcs stacks with white-on-black contrast
What is the problem with this error.
I realize that it is a long post, but I assumed that both problems are related.
All the best
