[FieldTrip] importing Brainstorm head and source models and leftfields

Dear all,

I have Jeff's same question. I have anatomies ready in Brainstorm:
segmented data imported, co-registration with MEG sensor space, computation
of head model with overlapping spheres. Now I would like to import all this
into Fieldtrip for source reconstruction of oscillatory sources (DICS).
What's the best way to do this?

And is there any difference between Brainstorm and Fieldtrip in these steps
that I should be aware of?

Jeff, did you manage to solve the problem?

Thanks a lot,
