### estimateRigidTransform returns scale 0

Hi,

i use estimateRigidTransform, in most cases it works, but sometimes it return a 0 scaleX/Y and transX/Y. Thats my code to calce the values.

Mat M = estimateRigid(...); transx = M.at<double>(0,2); transy = M.at<double>(1,2); scalex = sqrt(pow(M.at<double>(0,0),2)+pow(M.at<double>(0,1),2)); scaley = sqrt(pow(M.at<double>(1,0),2)+pow(M.at<double>(1,1),2));

what doues it mean if the method returns all 0 ? I thought if it find no transfrom the Matrix is empty.
