cell2mat -> operation -> mat2cell : How...?

12 views (last 30 days)
Hi, I have a cell aray that I need to convert to a 3D matrix, perform some operation, and then convert it back to the original cell format. I am failing to do te last step:
for i=1:301 % generate the cell array example dataset
u{1,i}=rand(41,50);
end
u_3d=reshape(cell2mat(u),size(u{1},1),size(u{1},2),size(u,2)); %convert cell array to 3D matrix
u_3d=medfilt3(u_3d); %perform an operation
u_3d=reshape(u_3d, size(u{1},1) , size(u{1},2)*size(u,2)); %reshape
% ... and convert back to cell array in original format... I don't get what
% numbers I have to enter...
bla=mat2cell(u_3d,[41 50],301); %Error
Thanks for your help!

for i=1:301 % generate the cell array example dataset
u{1,i}=rand(41,50);
end
u_3d = cat(3,u{:});
u_3dFilt = medfilt3(u_3d); %perform an operation
u_cell = squeeze(num2cell(u_3dFilt, [1,2]))';
Confirm output
% check that it's a 1x301 cell
whos('u_cell')
Name Size Bytes Class Attributes u_cell 1x301 4967704 cell
% Spot-check that cell n matches u_3dFilt(:,:,n)
isequal(u_cell{10}, u_3dFilt(:,:,10))
ans = logical
