Exception thrown when converting OpenCV Mat to array for 1024x1024 but not 512x512?

I have the following code and images (first one is 1024x1024 and the second is 512x512)

int main() {
    cv::Mat mat0 = cv::imread("lenna1024.bmp");
    double* mat_ptr0 = new double[mat0.cols*mat0.rows];
    for (int i = 0; i < mat0.rows; i++) {
        for (int j = 0; j < mat0.cols; j++) {
            mat_ptr0[j*mat0.rows + i] =<double>(i, j);

I get an exception thrown error for this. However, when I use lenna512.bmp instead of lenna1024.bmp, I don't get that error. Why is this?

Why is this?

new double -- wrong type, you also miss, that it's multi-channel.. don't blindly guess. and please do NOT use Mat::at for anything.

really, do not write code like this. opencv is a highly optimized vector library, don't try to defeat it with your own per-pixel code.

double means you got 8 bytes per pixel. I think bmp is 3 or 4 bytes per pixel. You can check channel and depth

when I use lenna512.bmp instead of lenna1024.bmp, I don't get that error.

run it in debug mode, please. you may not get an error on smaller images, but it's all still wrong.

crackwitz gravatar image<double>(i, j);

that is the problem you have. check the type of mat0. it is probably 8-bit unsigned integer, probably 1-channel or 3-channel. Mat::at<> doesn't respect that, instead it just reinterprets the underlying bytes in memory and when you do ask it to give you a double from that, it's gibberish.

mat_ptr0[j*mat0.rows + i]

that is a bug as well. it hasn't bitten you because both your inputs are square. it should be mat0.cols because that's how many elements there are in one row.
