Here is the code :

Mat _orange = imread("orange.jpg");
Mat_<Vec3f> orange;
_orange.convertTo(orange, orange.type(), 1.0/255.0);

The _orange.convertTo(orange, orange.type(), 1.0/255.0); part causes the error.

Here is the error message:

OpenCV Error: Assertion failed (!fixedType() || ((Mat*)obj)->type() == mtype) in unknown function.

PS: I am using Visual Studio 2012 and OpenCV 2.4.4

believe it or not, your src img must be empty !

thow in a check before processing it:

Mat _orange = imread("orange.jpg");
if ( _orange.empty() )
     cerr << "foul orange!" << endl;

Basically what are you trying to do? As far as I can see you are trying to push CV_8UC3 data into a Matrix of vectors. However, I do not see why you would do that. The resulting _orange still takes the orange.type which is 3 channels.

Try changing the orange.type() into CV_8UC1, which tells you want to store vector data into a single channel matrix with vectors.

I am trying to run a sample code for pyramid blending. However i got this error in this part of code.

Did you try changing the destination type? Like I suggested?

I did but it didn't work. Now code works because i changed the source image which oddly loaded as single channel.
