Mat M(10,10, CV_8UC3, Scalar(0,0,255)); creates 2-dimensional RGB image. How to modify this if I want 2-dimensional (10X10) single channel matrix with float (4 bytes) elements?

" I want 2-dimensional (10X10) single channel matrix " -- converting the depth (uchar -> float) is one thing, but "single channel" would require changing the shape (or colorspace, even) , which is unrelated. i'm quite sure, you did not think that though properly so far.

I don't need to convert images. Just to define a matrix of float elements. Would you please write a definition like in the question? I have a variant: Mat M(10,10, CV_32F, 0); Is it correct? What is the difference between CV_32F and CV_32FC1?

Mat M(10, 10, CV_32FC1, 0.0f);

will create a single channel float matrix, initialized to 0 ( please use 0.0f here, so it does not get mistaken as a 0 pointer)


Mat M(10, 10, CV_32FC3, 0.0f);

will create a similar 3 channel matrix. (CV_32F is just an alias for CV_32FC1)
