Hello. I managed to convert 64 bit float numpy array to cv material and display it. So how can i convert it to grayscale?

<cvmat(type=42424016 64FC3 rows=320 cols=240 step=5760 )>

Take the formula: Y = 0.299*R + 0.587*G + 0.114*B , where R,G,B denote the red, green and blue channels, respectively (note: opencv loads images in BGR).

Btw: You shouldn't use the old cv-python mats, but just stick to your numpy-arrays. Each function of cv2.* takes these numpy-arrays instead of mats as input!

Thank you for advice, that did what it should: cv2.imshow("img",,240,3), [0.114,0.587,0.299]))
