From cv::Mat to UIImage strange problem

I am using the code you provided to turn a cv::Mat into a UIImage. The code follows:

- (void) setImage:(cv::Mat ) cvMat {
   NSData *data = [NSData dataWithBytes:cvMat.data length:cvMat.elemSize()*cvMat.total()];
   CGColorSpaceRef colorSpace;
   double min=0, max=0;
   cv::minMaxLoc(cvMat, &min, &max);
   NSLog(@"Min %f Max %f", min, max);

  if (cvMat.elemSize() == 1) {
       NSLog(@"Received gray-level image");
       NSLog(@"W H: %d %d", cvMat.cols, cvMat.rows);
      colorSpace = CGColorSpaceCreateDeviceGray();
  } else {
      colorSpace = CGColorSpaceCreateDeviceRGB();
  }
  CGDataProviderRef provider = CGDataProviderCreateWithCFData((__bridge CFDataRef) data);

  // Creating CGImage from cv::Mat
  CGImageRef imageRef = CGImageCreate(cvMat.cols,                                 //width
                                    cvMat.rows,                                 //height
                                    8,                                          //bits per component
                                    8,//* cvMat.elemSize(),                       //bits per pixel
                                    cvMat.step[0], // cvMat.cols, //cvMat.step[0],                            //bytesPerRow
                                    colorSpace,                                 //colorspace
                                    kCGImageAlphaNone|kCGBitmapByteOrderDefault,// bitmap info
                                    provider,                                   //CGDataProviderRef
                                    NULL,                                       //decode
                                    false,                                      //should interpolate
                                    kCGRenderingIntentDefault                   //intent
                                    );
         ...

This code does not work in my program. The CGImageRef imageRef = CGImageCreate(cvMat.cols, ... fails.

After a little bit of debugging, I noticed that after the following instruction:

CGDataProviderRef provider = CGDataProviderCreateWithCFData((__bridge CFDataRef) data);

all the input cvMat fields are set to NULL. See screenshots before & after.

What am I doing wrong?

The instruction is not executed in the main thread. I will try and move it into the main thread and see what happens, but its side effects should be documented somewhere...

Hi, if you include opencv2/highgui/ios.h in your implementation file, then you can use:

UIImageToMat(image, cvImage); // Source UIImage* --> cv::Mat self.matchedImage = MatToUIImage(cvMatchedImage); // cv:Mat --> UIImage*

No method implementations are needed. I always used these methods without any problems. I'm using OpenCV version 2.4.9, Xcode 5.0, IOS 7.0

P.s : i use these methods NOT on main thread, and they works well also.
