You use method getMat with parameter access flag

There is an example in cam_shift.cpp

You cannot access to gpu data. Method getMat make a copy of gpu data to cpu and when it is finished copy cpu data to gpu


UMat w;
// get access to UMat
Mat b= w.getMat(cv::ACCESS_READ);<Vec3b>(Point(10,12)) = Vec3b(17,15,14);
} // b object is copy to gpu and b is destroyed (cpu memory used)

Ok, but how to define the x and y position in this methode and how to read the rgb value of that pixel only? can u show small eg. code or line? cas i didn't understood and see how it is done their.
