Even after a few cycles of optimization I could not get close the performance of OpenCV.

In the following code i find the contours of two rigid translated objects in img1 and 2, but estimateRigidTransformation seems not to work like i thought it would. It would be nice if someone has an idea why the
mat dst keeps empty.

The problem with this library is that it cannot manage this kind of tiny transformation steps and the result is that the source and transformed images are identical with this tiny transformations!
Is there any way to increase this precision such that I could get correct and different images when I rotate them and translate them by 0.001 degree and 0.0001 pixels respectively ?
One approach is changing the interpolation mask size which is defined by "INTER_BITS" inside imgproc.hpp file and compiling opencv library from scratch, but it could only increase the precision only a little bit.

I have R and t for my camera. I can make my own transformation matrix [R|t] and gemm this with a matrix of my 3D points converted to homgeneous, but it seems to me that perhaps this process is already contained in an OpenCV function as it is a common procedure. Is there such a function?
Forgive me if this has been answered elsewhere, I have not found it.Throwaway99Sat, 17 Oct 2015 08:24:17 -0500http://answers.opencv.org/question/73498/please help regarding cropping a complex matrixhttp://answers.opencv.org/question/64362/please-help-regarding-cropping-a-complex-matrix/ Hi, I don't know why I can't access the other account I opened in Feb this year. So thanks to thudor who replied to my question in February.
Now the problem I am facing is, (I am still novice in opencv, so please bear):
1. I am taking DFT of an image.
2. From the complex output I am cropping a circular portion surrounding a set of coordinates.
3. I am doing inverse Fourier Transform of this cropped Image (the size of the cropped image is equal to the complex output of DFT).
4. Now when I take the magnitude of the IDFT its fine. But the phase is not what I get in MATLAB. I mean the pattern.
So, I tried to look at the possible troubles. When I am cropping the image, I am creating a mask.
temp = new_mask(complexI, real_center);
Mat new_mask(Mat q, max_intensity m)
{
Mat masks = Mat::zeros(q.size(), CV_8U);
circle(masks, Point(m.col_ref, m.row_ref), int(filter_rad), Scalar(255, 255, 255), -1, 8, 0); //-1 means filled
return masks;
}
And then using this mask I am cropping the complex matrix.
Mat cropped(complexI.size(), complexI.type(), Scalar::all(0));
complexI.copyTo(cropped, temp);
Do you think, because I used CV_8U as the type of the mask matrix it is causing trouble when I am doing inverse Fourier transform? Please suggest.
I tried using other data types like CV_64FC2 but then the sentence complexI.copyTo(cropped, temp) doesn't work. Even if I use the type complexI.type() for the masks matrix this sentence doesn't work.
I am giving an example of the comparison of phase output of IDFT in MATLAB and opencv. PLEASE HELP!!!![image description](/upfiles/14345961906952511.jpg)
The blue line is MATLAB output and the red one is opencv.

I need some help with this problem:
I have a camera that takes a picture of something on a horizontal plane with a specific angle.
That creates a perspective transform of this "something". And I would like to get this picture as if I would look down from top of it.
What I did already and one thing that I don't know how to do:
1. I placed a chessboard there.
2. I find the corners of the chessboard.
3. ???
4. cvGetPerspectiveTransform
5. cvWarpPerspective
My problem is point 3.
I have to find out Source and Destination Points which depend on the corners of the chessboard and the width of the picture that was taken, because they show the transformation.
Source is easy: (0,0), (Width, 0), (0,Height) and (Width,Height), because I want the whole picture to be transformed.
Destination however is difficult for me. I don't know how to find those points.
I want that the whole picture (Not just the part with the chessboard inside) is transformed within a single step.
Like in the picture below.
I would appreciate any help.
Greetings and my thanks in advance,
Phanta

In this function, the HT Prob
HoughLinesP(dst, lines, 1, CV_PI/180, 50, 50, 10 );
with the arguments:
- dst: Output of the edge detector. It should be a grayscale image (although in fact it is a binary one)
- lines: A vector that will store the parameters (x_{start}, y_{start}, x_{end}, y_{end}) of the detected lines
- rho : The resolution of the parameter r in pixels. We use 1 pixel.
- theta: The resolution of the parameter \theta in radians. We use 1 degree (CV_PI/180)
- threshold: The minimum number of intersections to “detect” a line
- minLinLength: The minimum number of points that can form a line. Lines with less than this number of points are disregarded.
- maxLineGap: The maximum gap between two points to be considered in the same line.
Here can the rho and theta been employed again to get the selective degree? The lines now are vectors X start, Y start, X end and Y end which is different.
Can I limit the range that houghLines probablistic searches through?

but since i am using a very large 30x30 kernel to convolve, filter2d is using cross correlation, which uses discrete fourier transforms.
how would i prevent over saturation when using discrete fourier transforms?
i appreciate anyone who shares any ideas for how to deal with this.

Finally, this transform will distinguish "paper" from "writing" on it.
It will color with constant value any gradient fields or dimmed pictures, while remain uncolored any area with frequently changed colors, like in writings.
Key idea is that this transform should allow any big color change if it is gradual.

I have been trying for quite some time to figure out how to transform my phase map to 3D.
A little explanation:
Opencv has a nice stereo vision workflow, stereo calibration, acquire images, rectify images, calculate disparity via some correspondence technique, use reprojectImageTo3D to get the 3D point cloud.
I'm replacing one of the cameras with a projector for dense correspondence calculation. I'm able to stereo calibrate the camera/projector stereo pair, then I project vertical line patterns while the camera takes pictures of those patterns and calculate the projector column to camera pixel mapping. So here I only have projector column mapping and not column and row mapping. The mapping ends up looking like a disparity image but its not a disparity. The problem is that during the regular camera/camera disparity calculation both camera images are rectified, so all distortion is taken out (amongst other things happening with lining up epipoles). Then the correspondence algorithm searches both rectified images row by row (as the epipoles are aligned) and calculates the disparity.
In my situation I can't rectify the images, because there is only one image from the camera. But I can find the mapping of the projector columns to the camera pixels. So I can undistort this phase map image which will account for the camera distortion, but don't know how to undistort the projector side of the equation.
My question. Does opencv have some function or is there some group of functions that I can use to transform my projector pixel colums mapped to my camera pixels to 3D? I want to account for all distortion. Again here I project only vertical lines which gives me a 1D projector column (y) pixels to camera (x,y) pixels.
Thanks for any help or advice.

I want to get the plane image without distortions. For example text "APPROVED" must transform into straight text with one-sized letters, all hexagons must be the same.hbWed, 13 Mar 2013 12:59:49 -0500http://answers.opencv.org/question/9162/Translation transform with depth imagehttp://answers.opencv.org/question/7572/translation-transform-with-depth-image/Hi,
----------
**Summary**:
1. Translate depth-map by <X,Y,Z>, which are known
3. The new depth map has same size as the one which was input
4. A smoother estimate than - *subtraction by Z and translation by warpPerspective* - would provide is thought to be needed
----------
**Explanation**:
I'm trying to perform a translation transformation on a depth map (only depth no intensities), so that I'm able to zoom in on a particular part of the image, while keeping the size of the matrix the same.
I.E. if my input matrix was mat_inp with size (rows, cols) of type float
then I'd like my output to be mat_out with size (rows, cols) of type float with the origin translated by (X,Y,Z). I know what the translation(X, Y, Z) is.
So, I'd like to move my perspective to the point (X,Y,Z), coordinates are in the frame of the initial frame(perspective).
Does anyone know if an existing function exists that lets me do that?
I thought of a way to do it, but am not sure if its correct:
1. Subtract all pixels by Z
2. Replace negatives by zero
3. Use warpPerspective to translate X,Y,Z
The only problem is that in case of occlusions due to a something closer than Z, I don't think I'd get a smooth new depth map. If there was a small object close by, it might make the depth map closer than what a smooth estimate should be.
It seems to be that these warp methods are optimized for intensity values and that makes me wonder if a function exists that could do the translation shift for a depth map.
Sorry about the long post, any help is appreciated.

I've got the following problem: I would like to transform an image (with scaling, rotation and sheering) and save the position of a pixel in the reference image and the transformed position of this pixel in the transformed image. How can I do this, when the transformation matrix is known and I work with Mat objects?

I have a ROI in the image that I would like to rotate for a certain angle, and I move it to the top left corner of the image as a center of rotation. Then I move ROI back to the old position to see its new position. But the result I get is ROI under some strange angle. Can someone explain me how the rotation works?dzvrtSun, 28 Oct 2012 17:57:37 -0500http://answers.opencv.org/question/3533/Affine transform image outside of viewhttp://answers.opencv.org/question/3414/affine-transform-image-outside-of-view/I have an image on which I apply affine transforms (several of them in a row). The problem is that after executing them, sometimes happens that parts of the transformed image go outside of the view window and are not visible (as a result of the transformation). To make things worse, I use the transformed image to apply other affine transforms on it, but since the invisible part is lost, these transforms are not applied on it. Any suggestions how to recover the lost image part due to affine transformation?

I have no pairs of points, just 2 sets of points.
How can I do this in OpenCV?
----------
I tried to write ransac-like scheme for my purposes.
1. Get 4 random points from 1st set and from 2nd set.
2. Compute transform matrix H using getPerspectiveTransform.
3. Warp 1st set of points using H and test how they aligned to the 2nd set of points using some metric(I don't know what metric I should use I tried sum of min distance for all points in 1st set, but it seems it's not work good if points group together after transform)
4. Repeat 1-3 N times and choose best transform according to metric.
maybe I should use different metric?
Also I have idea that I can match points using shape context algorithm and only then use RANSAC(or some other algorithm) to determine transformation.mrgloomTue, 28 Aug 2012 02:45:39 -0500http://answers.opencv.org/question/1834/
