Hi all: Above pic is the orginal picture. I tried some kernels to check filter2D. For some kernels i get right result, sometimes not. So I am confused that the code is wrong, or that there are some bugs in filter2D. The code is here:

float m[] = {-1.0, -1.0, -1.0,
-1.0, 10.0, -1.0,
-1.0, -1.0, -1.0 };
cv::Mat kernel=cv::Mat(3,3,CV_32F,m);
filter2D(src, dst,-1,kernel);

But I get:

This is the wrong pic. I ever use imagj & ni vision to check result. The correct pic should be like

What to do? I want to get correct image!

Hi, It looks quite similar to me the final response between the two. Might be the values are scaled or normalized in the output in one case and the other one is saturated. Check the output values out, and try to normalize it by min and max value in the image and then compare the two results. Thanks Venky

Dear venky: i try scaled or normalized but i get the other uncorrect image.

I hope the image and ni vision toolbox does not do any other tricks to get a better result. I am also not sure if you have the same kernal for opencv and imagej and ni vision, So it will be very difficult for me to comment. I have used filter 2D and I got the same response when i cross checked with Matlab.

If i add cv::convertScaleAbs(dst,dst,1.0,0.0); then i get the other image. I ever use Aforge -> ilab to chek again. All are the same, except opencv convolution.

how does the filter2d algorithm work? The OpenCV documentation does not match my results. gravatar ( 2012-12-20 16:08:08 -0500 )edit

I thinks filter2D is matlab type Convolution , in fact is Correlation. you can ref : "Correlation and Convolution " and opencv filter2d:

There are some different.
