Reading .h5 file


i know there is csv-file output when using DLC, but I am wondering how find a way to read .h5-files? Using HDFView program or is there a nicer way?


Hi @sebo,

In Fiji, there is a plugin that enables the reading/writing of hdf5 files see here.


You can read .h5 files in python( and matlab (

Followed your matlab link to find hdf5read is sunsetting? suggests hd5read is hd5read going to be useful for DLC h5 files?


Yes you could use this function to import the hdfs (have not tried it though). However, perhaps it is more straightforward to use the csv files for importing in matlab,
