How to make .crds for movie using .rs templates
This is a way to take a number of survey responses, sorted sequentially in a .csv file, and make separate .crd subsets that may then be saved as .jpg images using paint (or another image editor of your choice). These .jpg images can then be turned into a movie.


  1. use SEPARATOR.py program to divide all responses (sorted by date in the .csv file) by desired window and slide values.




  1. copy1 runstreams from .rsTemplatesMovieTimeseries into a new folder.




  1. modify (a) runstreams if necessary; the templates are set-up for 369 input files, 15 concepts, 11-15 as free concepts, with a max val of 1902. Everything can be changed by opening the runstream in notepad.

Be sure to change the N-datasets for your last rs (so if you have 258 .txt files you will need to modify a251-300.rs as a251-258.rs and note there are only 8 N-concepts)




  1. use v56 to create .prt and .crd files for all (a) runstreams; these will all be unrotated.




  1. modify (b) runstreams if necessary [as in item 3, above].




  1. copy/paste all .crd results generated by a1-50.rs into b1-50.rs (deleting .txt files and pasting at the end of b1-50.rs)




  1. use v56 and create the first 50 rotated .crds.




  1. cut/paste the last rotated .crd (set 50) from a1-50.crd into a51-100.rs (again deleting .txt files and pasting at the end of the b .rs file). Now copy/paste all .crd results generated by a51-100.rs and paste those directly under set 50 (that you just copied).




  1. use v56 and create .crds 51-100.




  1. Repeat steps 8 & 9 (copying set 51 though instead of set 50) until all your input files have been used (using as many .rs files as necessary and potentially modifying your late (b)...rs file as per step 3 above.

Note that this procedure is just the same as it was with the (a) files except

you need to do it sequentially so you can copy the single rotated .crd from the previous set before you copy the .crds for the sets you mean to rotate together as you go along.


  1. Then use the BREAKER.py program on each crd file to put each group of coordinates into their own file and append labels (breaker.py will do both these thing).

You could also copy all crds into one file in order but it’s much easier to just use breaker on each crd separately and keep track of them by folder name (1-50, 51-100, etc.). Be aware that the last crd in one set and the 1st in the next are not exactly alike. The first three dimensions are the same though so go ahead and delete one of these files (either the first or the last). It doesn’t matter which just so long as you are consistent and keep track of which you’ve picked.

Done! : )

Now you are ready to open all these newly created coordinates in thoughtview, copy them and save as sequential order number (so 1 in 51-100 group is 51, etc.), and then open them in paint and save as .jpgs ...

“cheat sheet” type quickie directions for runstreams/v56 ONLY (to make subsequent windows/slides from already created sets & template runstreams):


  1. copy “template” runstreams




  1. change last (a) and last (b) runstream to new last set number [<-be sure to modify n-datasets]




  1. run v56 on all (a) runstreams




  1. copy all a1-50.crd to b1-50.rs and run v56




  1. copy last crd from 1-50 rotated as first crd in b50-100.rs; copy all crds in a51-100.rs

*be sure to delete any old set crds in .rs first, then copy new info (else if you aren’t careful you are just cut/re-pasting the old info. Easier to just delete first


*be sure unrotated crds say same sets as title of your rs


  1. do 5 for all remaining runstreams

7. proofread by opening all files to make sure all the sets you thought you copied here, there, and everywhere were copied correctly.




  1. use breaker on (b) crds; after individual crds are in folder, open last crd in each set to be sure it is ok (right number of lines, etc.)
