Micrograph shape mismatch errors

I’m trying to extract particles with CS 3.2 with the latest patches, but I get size mismatch errors. This is what I did:

  • Import movies
  • MotionCor2 Job
  • CTF estimate with ctffind4

Which worked fine. Afterwards I tried importing crYOLO coordinates, which worked, but the extract job would result in:

AssertionError: Micrograph shapes are inconsistent!

If i probe for those values, i have mic_shape=(3710, 3838) mic.shape=(3838, 3710).
I also tried to see if it was a problem with my import, so I manually picked a few coordinates on just one image and I get:

I’d be happy if anyone had an idea what I’m doing wrong or had a suggestion on how to fix this.

Hi @VerTeX,

Is there some chance motioncor2 is outputting micrographs with flipped axes? Not sure what parameters you have set there. It’s worth also checking the raw movies input files directly for their size, and also checking the .mrc micrographs coming out of motioncor2 for their size - they should be the same

It seems with the internal patch motion correction I get the correct behaviour, while the MotionCor2 output does not work. The files all have the same header information and I can see no flipping.

Patch v3.2.0+210601 released yesterday resolves this issue: Patch 210601 is available for cryoSPARC v3.2.0
