Hi guys, I have been using opencv for a while now, but I now need to make matrices of 4, or 5 dimensions. I can create a matrix like:

int sz[] = {1,5,5,16,16};
Mat x = (5,sz,CV_32F, Scalar::all(0));

but<float>(1,1,1,1,1) is invalid. Are opencv Mat objects not able to handle anything greater than 3 dimensions? Or is there another way of accessing the elements. Thanks for any help!

OpenCV has multi-dimension matrices.

First dimention of your matrix is 1, i.e. the only index within range is 0. When you call to (1,1,1,1,1) you should get out of range error.
