Hi, guys!
I'm a bit confused with algos using in pure C. I didn't find C-interfaces for BackgroundSubtractor(MOG)::getBackgroundImage. How should one use it properly? I suspect, it must be implemented by myself if I want to use pure C? Are there some short examples in C?

Like you say, backgroundsubtraction was implemented in the C++ interface, in which OpenCV still performs best. These C++ algorithms are all highly optimized and there might even be some day that the C - interface will die out slowly.

Basically what you could do to simulate background subtraction yourself is

  • Read in a reference frame
  • For following frames, just subtract the reference frame from the new frame

All static objects will get removed. You can then clean out the image using dilation and erosion.

Thank you! Already started to implement the whole program in C++ :D

That is also what I would recommend :)
