[FieldTrip] loading .txt files

Hi Stephen,
The data set I have was converted into ascii by myself. The same set contains EMG signals I collected with a Delsys EMG module thorough a Vicon system. The extension is .c3d and it seems that this format is not supported.  
I will try the option you suggested and let you know.
Thank you very much.

Dear Alex,

Have you converted your data into an ascii file yourself? What data acquisition hard/software are you using? Fieldtrip supports the reading of many EEG/MEG data formats. Perhaps in http://fieldtrip.fcdonders.nl/getting_started you can find a reference to the original dataformat?

If not you probably can't avoid making your own matlab script to load your data from (.txt) file and put it in a (data) structure that FieldTrip can handle. Take a look at the 'raw data format':

I hope this helps,
