Hi Fulvio,

it's not a simple file format conversion. In this case MTZ file is 
supposed to contain Fourier map coefficients, and Xplor formatted file 
will contain Fourier image of electron density map (typically simply 
called "electron density map"). So this converson also involves a FT.

Tool in PHENIX called phenix.mtz2map will do what you want:


Type phenix.mtz2map in the command line without arguments too see the 
parameters: you may want to adjust some of them to get what you want 
(for example, by default it will output CCP4 formatted (binary) map).

Try GUI to see if it's available in the GUI.
