NAME

       xfm2def - convert a MNI transform file to a deformation volume

SYNOPSIS

       xfm2def [options] input.xfm def_vol.mnc

DESCRIPTION

       xfm2def  takes  an  input transform input.xfm that can consist of a series of concatenated
       transforms in a single xfm file and converts this into a single deformation volume that is
       output  as  def_vol.mnc. Note that the output is not a transform file itself, you can then
       make use of this volume in a MINC transform by creating an .xfm file as such:

          MNI Transform File

          Transform_Type = Grid_Transform;
          Displacement_Volume = def_vol.mnc;

       The output resolution and sampling of the deformation grid must be specified or a  default
       size will be used. (100x100x100 1mm steps centred around the origin).
