Hi AFNI Experts,
I am using 3dQwarp and for most subjects it runs fine but I had a handful that would fail. Below is the error I am seeing. My guess is that the start and stop cost are close enough for the patch that it triggers a fail but that is just my hypothesis. This error is on AFNI_21.1.20 and 20.0.18

Any insights would be helpful. If there cost function stopping criteria is the issue is there a way to gracefully exit without the error? Can you let me know what the value is for the criteria for stopping if this is indeed the issue. I think on 3dAllineate there is an option :
-conv mmm = Convergence test is set to ‘mmm’ millimeters.
This doesn’t mean that the results will be accurate
to ‘mmm’ millimeters! It just means that the program
stops trying to improve the alignment when the optimizer
(NEWUOA) reports it has narrowed the search radius
down to this level.
* To set this value to the smallest allowable, use ‘-conv 0’.
* A coarser value for ‘quick-and-dirty’ alignment is 0.05.
