Interpolation of 3D arrays against a 1D vector

1 view (last 30 days)
Hello all.
I have a video data represented as 3D matrix in the form of Data(x,y,t). Here, x,y represent the pixel number and t is the time. I have the time vector stored in a separate variable. I need to interpolate the variable Data at a new time vector represented by variable t_new to get the new variable Data_new(x,y,t_new). I am using the following code:
n = 20;
m = 60;
t = linspace(0,1,n)';
t_new = linspace(0,1,m)';
Data = rand(50,50,n);
Data_new = permute(interpn(t,permute(Data,[3 2 1]),t_new),[3 2 1]);
% Verification by plotting the time history of selected pixel:
x = 25;
y = 25;
It looks fine to me. but the main concerns I am asking about:
  1. I had to use permute twice. I am not able to do it without permute. Can I avoid this?
  2. Is there a faster method to perform this interpolation?
Thanks and best,

Can you tell me why griddedInterpolant is nearly 5-6 times faster than interpn? Thanks!
