Now I have some problem :

mser = cv2.MSER_create()
contours = mser.detectRegions(imgThreshCopy,None)
hulls = [cv2.convexHull(p.reshape(-1, 1, 2)) for p in contours]
height, width = imgThresh.shape
imgContours = np.zeros((height, width, 3), np.uint8)
cv2.polylines(imgContours, hulls, 1, (255, 0, 0))

I want to get the area in hulls surrounding, but when I call:


Error happen:TypeError: mat is not a numpy array, neither a scalar I am new in opencv. Anyone can give me some advice? Thanks.

hulls is a list of contours (or indices), not an image, i guess you wanted:


also note, that it's:

contours, boxes = mser.detectRegions(imgThreshCopy)

(you could also use the bounding boxes returned for your mser regions)

Hey, It has error in :

contours, boxes = mser.detectRegions(imgThreshCopy)
TypeError: Required argument 'bboxes' (pos 2) not found

I actually want to crop areas from Origin Image which are surrounded by each hulls. In my question I had some mistake:

for i in hulls:

looks like a opencv version conflict. which one are you using, exactly ?

also try:

m = cv2.MSER_create()

Result is :

detectRegions(image, bboxes) -> msers

Actually I don't care about it. I only want to crop area from each hulls? Any suggestions? THX

since you can only crop from a rectangular region, forget the hulls, and use the bboxes

In opencv 3.X, It can not return bboxes values Instead of request bboxes param?

sorry, no idea about 3.X. current 3.2 has:

 detectRegions(image) -> msers, bboxes

either try to pass in something for bboxes (maybe a []), or use cv2.boundingRect() on the msers
