NAME

       ('mia\-mesh\-to\-maskimage',) - Create a binary mask from the mesh surfac.

SYNOPSIS

       mia-mesh-to-maskimage -i <in-file> -o <out-file> [options]

DESCRIPTION

       mia-mesh-to-maskimage  This  program  converts a 3D mesh into a binary mask comprising the
       mesh surface. The output image size is either given on the command line or  deducted  from
       the mesh dimensions.

OPTIONS

   File I/O
              -i --in-file=(input, required); io
                     input mesh to be adapted
                      For supported file types see PLUGINS:mesh/io

              -o --out-file=(output, required); io
                     output image containing the binary mask
                      For supported file types see PLUGINS:3dimage/io

   Processing
                 --threads=-1
                     Maxiumum number of threads to use for processing,This number should be lower
                     or  equal  to  the  number  of  logical processor cores in the machine. (-1:
                     automatic estimation).

   Properties
                 --origin=[0,0,0]
                     coordinate of pixel at index 0,0,0

                 --spacing=[1,1,1]
                     voxel spacing in the output image, all values must be positive.

                 --size=[0,0,0]
                     size of the output image (0,0,0 = deduct)

EXAMPLE

       The input mesh input.vmesh is converted into the binary mask mask.v. The image size is set
       to 50,50,50 and the size is obtained automatically to include the whole mesh

       mia-mesh-to-maskimage -i input.vmesh -o mask.v --origin 0,0,0
