  • Description

    a multi-GPU program that corrects beam-induced sample motion on dose fractionated movie stacks. It implements a robust iterative alignment algorithm that delivers precise measurement and correction of both global and non-uniform local motions at single pixel level across the whole frame, suitable for both single-particle and tomographic images.

  • Usage Notes

    MotionCor2 is a GPU accelerated program that runs on Linux platform equipped with one or more advanced NVIDIA GPU cards. It has been tested on Tesla k10, k40, k80, GeForce 980, and Titan cards. The current version was compiled on CUDA 8.0. The CUFFT library is required. Developers also recommend 128 GB or more CPU memory, although 64 GB CPU memory is also workable.
