3dZeropad


Usage: 3dZeropad [options] dataset

** Adds planes of zeros to a dataset (i.e., pads it out).
** A negative 'add' count means to cut a dataset down in size.
   [Remember 3rd grade arithmetic, please.]

Options:

 -I n = adds 'n' planes of zero at the Inferior edge
 -S n = adds 'n' planes of zero at the Superior edge
 -A n = adds 'n' planes of zero at the Anterior edge
 -P n = adds 'n' planes of zero at the Posterior edge
 -L n = adds 'n' planes of zero at the Left edge
 -R n = adds 'n' planes of zero at the Right edge
 -z n = adds 'n' planes of zeros on EACH of the
         dataset z-axis (slice-direction) faces

-RL a = These options specify that planes should be added/cut
-AP b = symmetrically to make the resulting volume have
-IS c = 'a', 'b', and 'c' slices in the respective directions.

-pad2odds = add 0 or 1 plane in each of the R/A/S directions,
             giving each axis an odd number of slices
-pad2evens = add 0 or 1 plane in each of the R/A/S directions,
             giving each axis an even number of slices
-pad2mult N = add planes in each of the R/A/S directions,
             making each number of planes a multiple of N

-mm   = pad counts 'n' are in mm instead of slices:
        * each 'n' is an integer
        * at least 'n' mm of slices will be added/removed:
           n =  3 and slice thickness = 2.5 mm ==> 2 slices added
           n = -6 and slice thickness = 2.5 mm ==> 3 slices removed

-master mset = match the volume described in dataset 'mset':
               * mset must have the same orientation and grid
                  spacing as dataset to be padded
               * the goal of -master is to make the output dataset
                  from 3dZeropad match the spatial 'extents' of
                  mset (cf. 3dinfo output) as much as possible,
                  by adding/subtracting slices as needed.
               * you can't use -I,-S,..., or -mm with -master

-prefix ppp = write result into dataset with prefix 'ppp'
                [default = 'zeropad']

Nota Bene:

 * You can use negative values of n to cut planes off the edges
     of a dataset.  At least one plane must be added/removed
     or the program won't do anything.
 * Anat parent and Talairach markers are NOT preserved in the
     new dataset.
 * If the old dataset has z-slice-dependent time offsets, and
     if new (zero filled) z-planes are added, the time offsets
     of the new slices will be set to zero.
 * You can use program '3dinfo' to find out how many planes
     a dataset has in each direction.
 * Program works for byte-, short-, float-, and complex-valued
     datasets.
 * You can use a sub-brick selector on the input dataset.
