opencv 2.4.11 record 16 bit depth image as video

asked 2015-07-30 08:43:56 -0500

Hi there, As mentioned in title, I would like to ask is there any way to record 16 bit depth image (Gray scale image) as video and do not compress. Until now, I can only record depth image as 24bit 3 channel rgb video, but it is not correct format for depth image. Depth image should be 16 bit 1 channel format. Is there any way to do in opencv? I am using openNI 2.2 + kinect + opencv 2.4.11 + visual studio 2013 + c++ for my project. My project will first read from kinect and convert the depth stream into opencv mat type.

If your camera is able to get depth frames, then what you should do is to get the frames in the correct format ;)

Hi, thanks for reply :) My kinect can get 16bit depth image, and I also able to save it as png image file type. But when I use videowriter in opencv, it just save video type as RGB24 and 24bit which is not correct?

cv::VideoWriter videoDepth("D:\depth-2.avi", CV_FOURCC('D', 'I', 'B', ' '), 30, cv::Size(WIDTH, HEIGHT), false);

it is my videowrite, thanks :)
