Question from a novice in OpenMx:

I want to convert an ACE script into an ADE script.

Am I correct in that, basically, the only thing I need to change is the mxAlgebra of the DZ group? Like this:
from:
mxAlgebra( expression= rbind ( cbind(A+C+E , 0.5%x%A+C),
cbind(0.5%x%A+C , A+C+E)), name="expCovDZ" )
into:
mxAlgebra( expression= rbind ( cbind(A+C+E , 0.5%x%A+0.25%x%C),
cbind(0.5%x%A+0.25%x%C, A+C+E)), name="expCovDZ" )

Yes, that would do it.

Yes, that would do it. However, I strongly recommend renaming all the C matrices to D, and the c path to d, just to avoid confusion when interpreting the output. It's not such a problem when you first do it, but can be a real head-scratcher when you look at it again some months/years down the road.
