       make_initial_affine - Initialize affine transformation


       make_initial_affine ReferenceImage FloatingImage OutputXform


       Compute initial affine transformation by aligning centers of mass or principal axes


   Global Toolkit Options (these are shared by all CMTK tools)
            Write list of basic command line options to standard output.

            Write complete list of basic and advanced command line options to standard output.

            Write list of command line options to standard output in MediaWiki markup.

            Write man page source in 'nroff' markup to standard output.

            Write command line syntax specification in XML markup (for Slicer integration).

            Write toolkit version to standard output.

            Write the current command line to standard output.

       --verbose-level <integer>
            Set verbosity level.

       --verbose, -v
            Increment verbosity level by 1 (deprecated; supported for backward compatibility).

       --threads <integer>
            Set maximum number of parallel threads (for POSIX threads and OpenMP).

   Transformation construction control
            Mode selection for initialization Supported values: "direction-vectors", "centers-of-
            mass", "principal-axes", "identity", where the default is "direction-vectors", or use
            one of the following:

                 Alignment based on image direction vectors [This is the default]

                 Alignment based on centers of mass (translation only)

                 Alignment based on principal axes

                 Create only an identity transformation

       --center-xform, -C
            Set transformation center (for rotation, scale) to center of reference image.

            Write  transformation  between  the native image spaces, rather than in CMTK standard
            RAS space. This is the default when running this tool as a Slicer plugin.

   Image/Transformation Database
       --db <string>
            Path  to  image/transformation  database  that  should  be  updated  with  the  newly
            transformation from reference to floating image.  [Default: NONE]
