Hi all,

as Stefano suggested, I modified PndEvtGenDirect.cxx.

it was not as straight forward, but finally it worked.
As expected the time information was not handled to the pndStack ( primGen->AddTrack).
when I changed this I had the problem that the used Units didn't fit.
Meanwhile I figured out that EvtGen is providing the time information in [mm] (natural units c=1)
and pndStack (more precise TParticle) is expecting time information in [s]. However I thought PandaRoot is using [ns] as unit for time. Therefore I'm not sure if i really fixed it correctly.

So I also implemented the following line:

fT=vxyz.get(0)/(1000*TMath::C()); //mm - > s conversion

The File Attached shows now the time stamp distribution for the FTof. Now it looks like expected!

I uploaded the changed file to


If someone wants to have a look. otherwise I'll ask someone to merge it with the trunk

beside I'm not sure if I'm correct with this mm to second conversion, and if seconds or nanoseconds should be used, I'm now worried about the timing information if other Generators are used . . .

regards Dominik
