Dear Caret users,

I am interested in using Caret to get sulcal depth values from FreeSurfer files.  

Following instructions on page 13 of the "User's Guide to Analysis Procedures", I was able to import a FreeSurfer file ("lh.smoothwm.asc") as  .spec, .topo, and .coord files in Caret5.5, and also view the surface.

When I attempted to generate a sulcal depth file, a ".vtk" file was requested.  What is a .vtk file and how do I create one?  

Also if anyone could please point me to more documentation on generating sulcal depth or .vtk files, I would greatly appreciate it.
