Hi Frank, 

I am working with DSI studio through singularity and using the --action=atk to autotrack a few bundles at once (separated by commas) 

I would like to specify the output directory but it seems that the respective .tt.gz and .txt files are by default written to the current directory. 

I have not been able to specify an --output location for where I would like these directories to be written to (i.e. a subject folder in a different location). 

Am I missing something here by any chance or is there a better way to indicate where the files end up? 

Thanks! 

-Steve

Hi Steve,

    Sorry for the late reply. I will see if this can be done in future versions.

Best,
Frank

An update is undergoing at https://github.com/frankyeh/DSI-Studio/actions/runs/3131937093
Once ready, you can use --action=atk --source=*.fib.gz --output=/folder

Thank you for this Frank! 

I was also curious to know if there was a function to specify writing files to trk.gz or tt.gz format for atk? Alternatively, is there a dsi studio command-line function that would readily convert .tt.gz to .trk.gz format?

I will review code to see if this is possible.

Thanks for the reminder!
It turns out to be a quick revision.
In the updated version, you may assign --trk_format=trk.gz (default is tt.gz)

The build is undergoing at
https://github.com/frankyeh/DSI-Studio/actions/runs/3198259818
Should be ready in an hour.

Hi Frank, 

For some reason I am still producing .tt.gz files with the new update and with the addition of --trk_format=trk.gz

Here is the call: 
singularity exec -B /data /data/singularity-images/dsistudio_20221006.sif dsi_studio --action=atk --source=*fib.gz --thread_count=3 --trk_format=trk.gz --output=TEST --track_id=Uncinate,Cingulum,Fornix

Is this an issue with the singularity version perhaps not being updated or does the order of the --trk_format argument matter?

Could you post the log output?
It will tell whether trk_format is used.
