Dear Michael

I think you can also read in ctf data that are saved in 3rd gradient mode
without any problems. If you look in data.grad.balance.current it should
then be G3BR after preprocessing. When we were testing, one of the things we
did was compare 3rd order data made by DataEditor with 3rd order data made
by FieldTrip. That looked fine. But again, it's not tested thoroughly yet.

Hope this helps,
Ingrid

Dear Robert,

I have a question regarding the use of the new preprocessing function and
denoise synthetic:
If the ctf data are saved in 3rd gradient mode - will preprocessing and
denoise_synthetic treat this correctly? I.e. will these functions not
perform any (unnecessary/wrong) computation and simply update the relevant
information fields in the data structure? Or do I have to save the ctf data
in raw format and then let fieldtrip do the rest?
Sorry if this question is somehow redundant. Just wanted to be sure.

Many thanks,
Michael
