I have tried to use ROI to extract parts of image, but I haven't succeded. I have an image which contains rectangles - outlines of detected moving object.Input

This is the outcome I want. i want to extract those parts which are defined by those rectangles to same-sized matrix


I have tried something like

cropMat(boudingRect) = frame(boundinRect);

but with this I get only the rectangles, not the part that is inside

you want copyTo(), not a simple "=" assignment:

Mat cars = imread("cars.jpg");
Mat draw = Mat(cars.size(), cars.type(), Scalar::all(0));
Rect r1(84,81,130,76);
Rect r2(417,144,153,85);

copyTo is the right thing to do, now it is doing what I need to

What was wrong with the copyTo? why is it better than simple =?

"=" assing only the refference, not the actual data

You could create a 0-image where you add the info in the rectangles; something like this :

cv::Mat justInfo = cv::Mat::zeros(frame.size(), frame.type());
for (cv::Rect roi : detections)
    justInfo(roi) = frame(roi);
