Hi all,

What does this error mean ? The code I am working with is multi threaded with thousands of lines with multiple files. I have no idea how to debug a multithreaded openmp code

OpenCV Error: Assertion failed (!fixedSize() || ((Mat*)obj)->size.operator()() = = Size(_cols, _rows)) in cv::_OutputArray::create, file C:\builds\master_PackSla ve-win64-vc12-shared\opencv\modules\core\src\matrix.cpp, line 2171

EDIT:

How do I find the exact line that crashed the code ? The line that stops the code from continuing ? I have an error vector subscript out of range but I am not sure which part of the code I should start looking at

some code tried to change the size of an 'fixed size' Mat, like Matx33d or Vec4f.

try to debug it, let it crash, walk up the call-stack, until you see something familiar. look out for resize(), reshape(), push_back(), anything that messes with the shape/size.

I just resolved a situation very much like your own, I was being silly in the following code, where I calculate the reverse condition of matrix N, and am only interested in the return value; I passed a const cv::Mat to hold the output, rather than a cv::Mat without the const specifier.

const cv::Mat ignored;
double cond_N = 1.0/(cv::invert(N,ignored,cv::DECOMP_SVD)); //cond(N)

The result is an exception:

OpenCV Error: Assertion failed (!fixedSize() || ((Mat*)obj)->size.operator()() == Size(_cols, _rows)) in create, file ~/opencv/modules/core/src/matrix.cpp, line 2427

This is resolved, easily, by passing in a non-const cv::Mat to hold the output. (It may also not occur when the Mat so happens to already be the correct size; seeing as the size is what needs modifying from the uninitialized matrix to its output value...)

My problem was fixed by changing const cv::Mat ignored; to cv::Mat ignored;.

The fact I ran into this problem is the result from trying to use const wherever possible, which is in essence a good quality , indicates to readers what my intention with the matrix is, and could even help the compiler optimize, but all things in moderation :)

For anybody seeing this obscure message, it happened to me once because at some point in my code I was trying to modify a const cv::UMat &. After a const_cast<cv::UMat &> the problem was solved.

Removing constness from a variable and then modifying it leads to undefined behavior, according to the C++ standard. You nailed the problem but the solution is wrong.
