NAME

       ('mia\-2dmulti\-force',) - Registration force between two images

SYNOPSIS

       mia-2dmulti-force -o <out-file> [options] <PLUGINS:2dimage/fullcost>

DESCRIPTION

       mia-2dmulti-force  This  program  evaluates  the 2D image cost force norm image of a given
       cost function set. The input images  must  be  of  the  same  dimensions  and  gray  scale
       (whatever bit-depth).

OPTIONS

              -o --out-file=(output, required); io
                     output norm image
                      For supported file types see PLUGINS:2dimage/io
