Hopefully there is an actual fix for getting the origins to remain unshifted, but in the meantime, I have a hack you can use.

Use AlignMeshBoundingBoxes in SCIRun to get the regions to occupy the same bounded area.  Then you should be able to map the fibers.  I have a SCIRun 4 network (not compatible with SCIRun 5) that deals with this exact issue.  I can attempt to recreate it in SCIRun 5, but some of the features will not be available.  Let us know if that works.

It seems there is some problem with file import/export in Seg3D and SCIRun, with spacings and origins. 

So, my original files are of the following formats in .vtk:
MRI data: 256x256x512, spacing  0.05, 0.05, 0.05,  origin 0, 0, 0
Fibers files: 64x64x128, spacing 0.2, 0.2, 0.2, origin 0, 0, 0

Then I use Seg3d to segment my MRI data, and for some reason the output of the segmentation in .nrrd format becomes:
256x256x512, spacing  0.05, 0.05, 0.05,  origin  -0.025, -0.025, -0.025

I also use Seg3d to convert Fiber files in .nrrd format, and for some reason th output becomes
64x64x128, spacing 0.2, 0.2, 0.2, origin -0.1, -0.1, -0.1

This messes finally also with the size of the domain, and then SCIRun thinks that the data are not of the same size, and does not want to ComputeFieldData - in order to project fibers onto segmentation.

I tried to use Transform in Seg3d, to force origin to 0, 0, 0, and it appears to work at first. When I open the file in vi it shows origin at 0, 0, 0, but when I import file in SCIRun it seems to be shifted again and of the wrong size.

Any advice?
