Ok, this "forum" is much more local, than StackOverflow and most people, who give answers here are somehow related to OpenCV development, so they aren't paid to watch and moderate these pages all day long. Mutual respect is one of the key factors for most open source communities out there — I'm trying to notify people about that one more time.

2012-10-02 06:02:18 -0500 edited answer object detection using SURF & FLANN

Hi, It all depends on your computation time constraints.

Whatever the descriptor (SIFT, SURF, etc.)... each one having its computation time...

Using the FLANN matcher is fast but is approximate so that mismatches happen more often... then, it is common to see more mismatches even if using an accurate descriptor only because the matcher is not that appropriate... then, find the compromise !

Instead of using the FlannBasedMatcher, you should try C++: BFMatcher::BFMatcher(int normType, bool crossCheck=false )

This matcher is brute force then it requires much more processing power but... it is more precise.

In addition, you can try different setups : choose the distance (normType parameter) : NORM_L1 is efficient and low cost, NORM_L2 "can" be better but is more expensive.. but you can use NORM_L2SQR which is equivalent to the L2 distance but avoids the square root computation, avoiding some CPU usage.

If you use crossCheck=true, this will allow a more refined matching by trying to match in both directions (img1->img2 and img2->img1) and keep common matches... but this will result in fewer matches. However, take care, a bug report has been sent this summer : on current trunk, crossCheck=true leads to some wrong computations... (see

If you do not use the crossCheck=true setup, then, I recommend to not use directly the BFmatchers object but prefer the static allocation method :

C++: Ptr<descriptormatcher> DescriptorMatcher::create(const string& descriptorMatcherType), then, use "BruteForce-L1", "BruteForce-L2", "BruteForce-SL2" or "FlannBased" to choose the appropriate matching method, this makes your program more flexible.

Have a nice code ;o)

2012-10-02 06:01:11 -0500 edited answer How do I install OpenCV with IPP and TBB?

There is a cool video that if you pay attention to every step there is no chance to get lost.

The key is to download the TBB package to a folder (in the video is called "dep"), and when you click configure in CMake the route will be NOT FOUND, so you have to set it manually and click configure again. The same for IPP.

I think this video tutorial is what you need, there is no chance to fail.

2012-10-02 05:58:42 -0500 edited answer Pose estimation with SIFT and homography

I think you should be a little more specific in your question.

If your asking how to obtain the rotation and translation (extrinsic parameters) of the camera using an homography, this problem is known as Homography Decomposition. For instance, if you want to insert an augmented object in your book, you will need these parameters (simply computing the perpendicular vector to X and Y will lead to errors).

Notice that to estimate the R and t from the homography you will need the instrinsic parameters of the camera, which can obtained using the calibration method present in OpenCV. These parameters will remain the same for all sequences of the camera.

Finally, you need to implement a couple of equations to extract the extrinsic parameters, they are well described in this great paper by Zhang:

A Flexible New Technique for Camera Calibration

Of course, this depends in what you really want to do in your application. I hope this can help.

2012-10-02 05:58:26 -0500 edited answer How to train cascade classifier

you have to create a .vec file from your positives file using the opencv_createsamples tool, e.g.

opencv_createsamples -info positives.dat -num 1000 -vec positives.vec -w 24 -h 24

This would create a positives.vec file from 1000 positve samples listed in positives.dat. The sample width and height are 24. This .vec file is than passed to opencv_traincascade for training. For the negatives you just pass a file containing the file names of your negative samples. For further informations i found this, that, and that good resources. But you've probably found them already...

To create the opencv_createsamples tool you should configure OpenCV with BUILD_EXAMPLES=ON (i think).

2012-10-02 05:56:23 -0500 edited question Using Setters and Getters in AlgorithmInfo::addParam for Algorithm inheritance

I am working on creating my own algorithm inheriting from cv::Algorithm using the reference from the OpenCV docs. I have created my own classes that inherit from cv::Algorithm with success but I am having difficulty with this one since it has a member m_model which is a stuct from a library that can't be modified because the MyAlgorithm class is wrapping the functionality in this struct.

Anyways, I am trying to reference a member within the struct that is a `uchar[3] so I wrapped it in a cv::Ptr. When I compile my program without and getters or setters on the addParam method>addParam<uchar[3]>(obj, "arrPtr",  *arrPtr, false);

the code compiles fine but I get a runtime error when I try to write an MyAlgorithm object to file because it can't get the data. It is looking for a member variable with the arr name but it doesn't exist. So I defined some getter and setter methods for the arr parameter within the m_model class member.

However, I am not sure how to pass the member function pointers into the addParams method. I know that I can't just pass them into the addParams method like a function like I am currently doing in the code below. I have also tried the following:>addParam<uchar[3]>(obj, "arr",  *arrPtr, false, &MyAlgorithm::getArr, &MyAlgorithm::setArr);

but I get a compile error:

cannot convert parameter 5 from 'cv::Ptr<_Tp> (__thiscall MyAlgorithm::* )(void)' to 'cv::Ptr<_Tp> (__thiscall cv::Algorithm::* )(void)'

Below is a stripped down sample of my source code. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


class MyAlgorithm : public cv::Algorithm    {
    //Other class logic
    cv::Ptr<uchar[3]> getArr();
    void setArr(const cv::Ptr<uchar[3]> &arrPtr);

    virtual cv::AlgorithmInfo* info() const;
    //define members such as m_model
cv::Algorithm* createMyAlgorithm();
cv::AlgorithmInfo& MyAlgorithm_info();


cv::Algorithm* createMyAlgorithm()
   return new MyAlgorithm();

cv::AlgorithmInfo& MyAlgorithm_info() 
   static cv::AlgorithmInfo MyAlgorithm_info_var("MyAlgorithm", createMyAlgorithm);
   return MyAlgorithm_info_var;

   return &MyAlgorithm_info();

2012-10-02 05:46:47 -0500 edited question ndk-build deletes native OpenCV library

I tried to create a own OpenCV-2.4.2 android project using Eclipse and OpenCV on Linux. I followed the steps from the tutorials (Tutorial on using native code and static libraries and Tutorial on creating an own OpenCV application) to use static library initialization instead the dynamic approach. Also I am using a small native C++ part wich calls OpenCVs FeatureDetector() method (similar to samples/tutorial-4-mixed).

So when I try to copy the native lib into /libs/armeabi-v7a (according to step 3), build and run the application on my device it will throw an ExceptionInitializerError: couldn't load library 'opencv_java'.

The app can't load the file because ndk-build deletes it on creation of the app. My own native code part is built and placed correctly in /libs/armeabi-v7a but is gone What am I missing?

2012-10-02 05:43:38 -0500 edited answer Stitcher module errors


You should use the method stitch instead. The method composePanorama composes images under assumption that motions between the images were estimated earlier using the method estimateTransform. See the stitching module docs.


2012-10-02 05:35:38 -0500 edited answer Percentage of color in a frame of video

If you want to use histogram, you will need to get a histogram of monochrome frame by converting the image to grayscale. Or you can convert the image to HSV and compute the histogram of V component.

2012-10-02 05:19:54 -0500 edited answer HOG latent SVM obj detection doesn't seem to work

Hello, I'll try to answer some of your questions.

  1. Nobody says that algorithm provides exact detection outcome. If you open Felzenschwalb's article you see that average precision for object class 'person' equals 0,342. Evidently it's not so good as you waiting for. Concerning too many false positives you can decrease number of false positives decreasing detection threshold in function cvLatentSvmDetectObjects (by default thershold equals 0.5).
  2. Have you tried to execute Felzenshwalb's implementation? If you haven't done I'm ready to do that and compare results to satisfy results similarity or to find out a bag. Please, choose image from VOC2007.
  3. Execution time depends on many conditions, first of all: what version you use (sequential or parallel), how many threads you create during execution if you have multi-core processor, size of test image.

Note that Felzenschwalb's implementation is a multi-threading implementation. Besides authors don't tell about infrastructure in their paper. That's why it's not quite correct to compare execution time of those implementations. OpenCV implementation in 4 threads works about 4 seconds in average (on VOC2007 data, where image size is about 640x480, OS - Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Standard SP1 x64, RAM - 4Gb, Processor - 2 processors Intel Xeon 5150 (2.66 GHz)).

Latent SVM documentation you can find here. More over there are two samples (latentsvm_multidetect, latentsvmdetect) and comments to source code in accordance to the notation of the paper.

If I understand correctly, you do not want to draw the nested contours. In this case the line where you draw the contours should be changed to,

drawContours(box,regions,i,Scalar(0,255,255),1,8, vector<Vec4i>(), 0, Point());//this was used to draw irregular  outlines of MSER regions

Refer to drawContours for more information.

Hi, Your error seems to be windows dll related but it can also come from some library install problems, is your dll corrupted ?
Also, when dealing with video processing, you need a video file decoder. FFMPEG is required. Then, check your installation/configuration. If you recompile from sources, check if FFMPEG is found when configuring with the cmake tool.
Have a look at install guide for more details.

Hope it helps.

I used to work with OpenCV 1.4 under Visual Studio, now I'm learning how to use OpenCv 2.4. I noticed it is waaaayyy more complicated to configure.

I'm using VS2010 over Win7 x64.

I configured all the project settings following this tutorial which is by the way, the only one that partially worked.

So I had the tbb_debug.dll missing error. The problem is that it is already there. Why does my project cannot see the DLL? The only way I manage to make my project work was by copying tbb_debug.dll under the x64\vc10\bin folder.

What should I do to make my project look inside the common folder?

  2. eclipse hellio with ADT and CDT.
  3. NDK (last version)
  4. SDK platform (API 11)
  5. emulator with camera for API 11
  6. All opencv projects are at API 11.


  1. NDK examples ,compiled and run.

problems with opencv samples:

Compilation just fine, but no sample succeed run on emulator. I load the sample and asked to install the manager it fails(noo connection to google play) and I'm installing it by 'android' command line from cmd(arm7 too) but still after openning the applicaion still don't recognize the manager!
