How can I convert one dataformat into an other?

You can read in the data from the original data format using ft_preprocessing and subsequently use the ft_write_data function to write the data to another format that you can specify.

The ft_write_data function requires that you construct a header structure that describes the data (i.e. channel names, sampling frequency) similar to what is returned by ft_read_header. If your data is represented as a FieldTrip raw data structure, i.e. consistent with the documentation in ft_datatype_raw, you can use ft_fetch_header to construct a header on the fly, e.g.

hdr = ft_fetch_header(data);

If your data is continuous and hence the data structure contains only a single (very long) trial do:

dat = data.trial{1};
ft_write_data('yourfile.ext', dat, 'header', hdr, ...)

If you want to write multiple trials, you have to concatenate them and like this:

dat = cat(2,data.trial{:})
ft_write_data('yourfile.ext', dat, 'header', hdr, ...)

Note that in the additional options to ft_write_data you should specify the file format. The ft_write_data function can export data to the following file formats

  • edf
  • gdf
  • brainvision_eeg
  • neuralynx_ncs
  • neuralynx_sdma
  • plexon_nex
  • riff_wave
  • fcdc_matbin
  • fcdc_mysql
  • fcdc_buffer
  • matlab
