-Besides creating the sidecar files with metadata, in this step we are also converting the data from EEGLAB .set format into BrainVision format. This is (along with EDF) the preferred format for EEG data in BIDS, since it is widely supported by many EEG analysis software packages. ​+The **[[/​reference/​data2bids]]** function will get the metadata that is available from the original file, such as the channel names, sampling frequency, etc. There is also information about the data that is not available in the file, which you have to specify in the configuration structure. It is also possible to overrule information that is incorrect/​incomplete in the data file and to ensure that the correct metadata appears in the sidecar files.

 In principle converting the data is not needed, since EEGLAB .set is also one of the (non-preferred) formats allowed for EEG data in BIDS. In principle converting the data is not needed, since EEGLAB .set is also one of the (non-preferred) formats allowed for EEG data in BIDS.
