denoise_TVL1 not working?

I would like to denoise a grayscale image using the TV regularization, in order to prevent sharp edges being smoothed out. I'm working in win10 with Qt 5.4.1 and OpenCV 3.0. I tried the aforementioned algorithm but this gives me the following error:

OpenCV Error: Assertion failed ((flags & FIXED_TYPE) != 0) in type, file C:\opencv\sources\modules\core\src\matrix.cpp, line 1821

seems like a type error, but it looks strange to me since I'm just loading a grayscale image. please note that the function 'fastNlMeansDenoising' works flawlessly within the same framework.

For better clarity, here's the pseudo code:

String  imageName  = "imageName.jpg";
Mat I = imread(imageName, CV_LOAD_IMAGE_GRAYSCALE);
double lambda = 2;
int niters = 5;
Mat Denoised;
denoise_TVL1( I, Denoised,  lambda,  niters);       //  ! NOT WORKING !
fastNlMeansDenoising(I, Denoised, 8, 7, 25);        //  ! WORKING !

any hint? thank you, Guido.

forget to say: my compiler is mingw...

any clue? I think variational denoising (especially using the L1 gradient norm) is quite important in the field of image treatment...

still could not believe no-one is giving any hint. is this question so trivial?

Hello. It seems you are passing one image in I. But the first argument for denoise_TVL1 is a vector of images. Try passing vector of images rather than a single image. Hope it helps.
