Generic 3-D image processing program. The main tasks this program can be used for are:
- Convert volumes from one format to another
- Perform basic image processing operations such as filters, masks, normalization, etc.
- Resize/rescale volumes
- Compute FSC curves, structure factors, etc.
This program operates on single 3-D image files and EMAN2 BDB databases. While it is possible to put multiple volumes into a single file akin to 2-D particle stacks, it is not widely supported, so this is not a commonly used capability. It has many command-line options for specific tasks. The generic '--process' option is by far the most powerful, offering access to 180+ different image processing operations (for a list, type e2help.py processors).
For specific details on various options, use e2proc3d.py --help.
