Importing particle.star (from relion 3.1) fails in cryosparc V3.0.1

Hi,

I got a problem when importing particle.star file (from relion 3.1) using cryoparc V3.0.1. The error is shown as follows:

Thanks,

Have you solved the problem?
I encountered the same error.

Yes, I got clues from the previous posts.

Solved the problem by
(1) manually changing " _rlnOriginXAngst, _rlnOriginYAngst" to " _rlnOriginX , _rlnOriginY"
(2) modifying the values in these two columns by being divided by pixel size using awk

I follow your suggestion by dividing, still not working, please see below

@ajian I recommend you check the modified star file using gedit. AWK command should not change the original format of the file (separate space, etc). It looked like it has been introduced some typeerrors.

Hi Rashed,
could you please share the command you use to change the values of the _rlnOriginXAngst, _rlnOriginYAngst ? I am facing the same problem than you.

Best,
Alfredo

@alfredo07
Here is my procedure:

(1) remove the header info in the star file.

(2) apply the following commands:

awk ‘{split($0, a, FS, seps); a[8]=a[8]/0.89; for (i=1;i<=NF;i++) printf("%s%s", a[i], seps[i]); print “”}’ input.star > output1.star

(0.89 is the pixel size of my image data, 8 refers to the 8th column)

awk ‘{split($0, a, FS, seps); a[9]=a[9]/0.89; for (i=1;i<=NF;i++) printf("%s%s", a[i], seps[i]); print “”}’ output1.star > output2.star

(9 refers to the 9th column)

(3) copy back the original header info to output2.star, and then change ‘rlnOriginXAngst’, ‘rlnOriginYAngst’ to ‘rlnOriginX’, ‘rlnOriginY’ in the header.

Now it should be ready for cryosparc V3.0.1.

You may encounter error if the version of awk in your computer is too old. In such case, upgrade to gawk should work.

Many thanks @Hormel . It worked with gawk and correcting some symbols that were copy/past wrong
