Hi, I'm new to opencv , I want to write a script for having an effect like Microsoft office lens, which can detect a piece of paper no matter the camera angle and put a rectangle around it and crop it and then unwrap it. I wanted to ask if you guys know any approaches to such problem using openCV

Thanks very much Best

downvoted for being all "i want", without showing any own research or skill.

(we simply can't help you, like this)

Thanks very much for judging @berak . As i said I'm new to opencv and looking for clues and where to start for this problem.

admittedly, a snake-bites-tail thing. so, some clues:

  • find corners of paper sheet
  • 4 points are enough for a perspective transformation (did you even knew, what that is ?)
  • warpPerspective does the actual transformation.

(hint: this site has a search bar, too)

try some things on your own, come back with a more refined question, please.

(again, though i even halfway sympathize with your "go-bold-and-barefoot-where-angels-fear-to-thread" approach, - the world does not work like this, and we can only help you, if you understand the basics (which again are all absent in your question.)

Thanks very much @berak for you condescending comment.

again, this is not a coding, but a maths problem. unless you understand the latter, we can't help you to solve the former.
