When i am creating vec file with opencv_createsamples using command opencv_createsamples -info info.dat -w 20 -h 20 -vec postives1.vec This message is coming "info.dat(685) : parse errorDone. Created 684 samples" . I do belive that there is a error in one file. But how to debug that?

Secondly when i am using this file for opencv_traincascade , This error is coming "Cascade classifier can't be trained. Check the used training parameters.

info.dat(685) : parse errorDone. Created 684 samples --> this message is not an error. Basically it keeps running through the data file until it doesnt find a new entry. The output is simply badly chosen, but states that you are at the end of your file and that 684 samples are collected.

Without more info on your train cascade parameters and command, we cannot help you any further.

My command for training is " opencv_traincascade -data data/ -vec pos/postives.vec -bg neg/info.dat -numPos 3 -numNeg 5 -numStages 5 -w 20 -h 20" .

Is there any restrictions in parameter's value ??

why is -numPos 3 -numNeg 5 if you have 684 samples? I would think that -numPos is at least 85% of that amount and -numNeg a multitude of that.

Thanks for that. Now the training got started but ended with error "Train dataset for temp stage can not be filled. Branch training terminated." .

My command for training goes by: opencv_traincascade -data data/ -vec pos/postives.vec -bg neg/info.dat -numPos 550 -numNeg 700 -numStages 15 -w 20 -h 20 -maxFalseAlarmRate 0.7. It is stopping at 8th stage, but when i am giving it for 7 stages, it is running fine? Can you possibily tell me what is the error?
