Re: [MORPHMET] Procrustes ANOVA for FA Analysis

2017-02-03 Thread M. Viviana Toro Ibacache
Hi Kate,

If I understood correctly, I am not sure that you can do a Procrustes
ANOVA-based FA test on a list of individuals where only few of them have
been digitized a second time. If this is the case, then I would suggest
this approach (might be other ones using what you already have but this is
fast and works for me):

- have a separate landmark file that contains only the specimens you
repeated (5 landmarks sets + 5 repeatded landmark sets = 10 landmark sets),
whose names end on "-rep1" and "-rep2" or something alike but with the same
amount of characters.
- create a classifier (eg "repeat) using the last characters of the name
(in my example, first character would be -5 and the last, -1). Remember you
have to create an "individual" classifier that covers all the remainig
characters.
- run the procrustes ANOVA on this 10-individuals landmark set using as
error term the "repeat" classifier. This way you will be able to quantify
variation due to repeated landmarking against variation due to
individual*side.

I hope this helps,
Viviana

2016-09-07 Thread M. Viviana Toro Ibacache
Dear Anneke,

Geomagic seems to read the three files and saves them to generate a .wrl
(not .ply) file that has indeed colours, although they are not in the right
place. But that is a good start. I assume there is a Geomagic setting to
generate the file I am missing so I will keep on trying. Luckily in the lab
I currently am there is Geomagic... a freware option for everyone would
always be great!

Thanks and best wishes,

Dear Antonio,

I tried that after your email, but I hit the same rock: Meshlab creates the
.wrl file using only one of the .jpg files representing texture (there is
no way I have found to select the three of them). I have no correct

there a limit to files size in Meshlab? I would rather not to downsample
the mesh to not lose anatomical details.

- When using the Transfer Texture to Vertex Color function, the texture
gets messed. It seems from web forums that Mshlab takes only one of the (in
this case) three .jpg files to do the colouring of the .ply mesh. Does
anybody know how to fix this? Another freeware software?

- Is there any landmark acquisition software that loads .obj files with
textures? So far, I have not been able to do it in Landmark Editor, Evan
toolbox, Avizo, Morpho nor Geomorph.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Best (y saludos),
Viviana
