[FieldTrip] layout file from beamformer

Dear Tyler,

I recently had a similar problem.

I solved this by plotting the x,y,z-coordinates of all dipoles within the BEM-Model and assign a color value depending on the power value to the dipole markers.

In short: use ft_triplot to plot the mesh of the BEM. Then select the .pos-field of the dipoles inside your volume and plot them with plot3.
In the plot3-step, you can assign each dipole a 'Color'-property based on your power or stats value.

Alternatively, you can use ft_prepare_layout to get a planar projection of your sources, but at least in my case it did not look too good.

Hope that helps, if you want to, I can send you an example of what the plots look like.
