Source code information


Important : the original link to the source code is broken, and I could only find a version stored by the WayBack Machine.
Tested on Matlab R2018a and a few things have changed since R2013a. Need to change all widthlimits to WidthLimits (same for height) ; set(gcf,'wvisualmode','auto') does not exist (I changed to RenderMode, but I am not sure this is the same). The addpath at the begining of Deform.m should be changed to the correct Mosek/Matlab version number.
The reason I do not put higher score to "fixing bugs" is that there still seems to be an image normalization issue which makes all images appear near white (I'd say in the range 253 to 255), perhaps due to the "wvisualmode" setting. I did not manage to fix it in a reasonable amount of time. However, the deformation pipeline seemed to work well, to the extent I could see the very bright result.
