Now I am studying openCV with Java(not so familier to Java and C++ though...), following C++ documentations online as well as textbooks of C++. I am trying to make a "fisheye lens effect" following the C++ code in a textbook, but I stuck completely.

How to translate the following code to Java?

Especially, I don't exactly understand the part around <uchar>. That seems like pointer but in Java version, I never found this kind of part...

for (int y=0; y<srcMat.rows; y++){
  for (int x=0; x<srcMat.cols; x++){
    for(int i=0;i<=2; i++){
         // vx and vy are int that represent other positions<uchar>(y, 3*x+i) =<uchar>(vy, 3*vx+i)

&lt;uchar&gt; is a template parameter for a template function. uchar means probably unsigned char as a typedef. Search for more info about c++ template functions.

Here is an excellent explanation: How to get and modify the pixel of Mat in Java? In your case code can be like:

// assume, that Mats with one channel
byte[] sourceBuffer = new byte[];
byte[] destinationBuffer = new byte[];
srcMat.get(0, 0, sourceBuffer);
int cols = srcMat.cols();
int rows = srcMat.rows();
for (int y = 0; y < rows; y++){
  for (int x = 0; x < cols; x++){
    for (int i = 0; i <= 2; i++){
          destinationBuffer[y * cols + 3 * x + i] = sourceBuffer(vy * cols + 3 * vx + i) 
dstMat.put(0, 0, destinationBuffer);

Hi @Daniil Osokin, i have a problem, i still dont have bright idea in converting code like this aamTexture.<Vec3b>at(pointsInsideHull.get(i))[0] into java, do you have any tutorial about it?
