I am working with openCV api for java.
I have a images pair and want to apply the rotation matrix which I get from


and I want to use it. I have try for both images, right and left, with


But it doesnt work. I get a black image.

With < warpAffine() > I dont know how to use the rotation matrix because R is 3x3 but the input for warpaffine must be 2x3

Somebody has any idea

The R matrix transforms from Cam1 system, to Cam2 system. Its a 3D->3D transformation. The warpPerspective() expects an 2D Image -> 2D Image tranformation (in normalized space).

Luckily there is a function for that:

Yes, you are right , either warpPerspective() or warpAffine() are transformation on images 2d -> 2d. May be do you know how to apply an infinitive homography to an image?, i.e the matrix Hinf=k1Rk2inv, where ki are the intrinsic camera matrix and R is the rotation matrix between cameras

Just multiple the matrices, and pass the result to the warpPerspective() function.
