L_GWireInit

#include "Ltimgcor.h"

L_LTIMGCOR_API L_INT L_GWireInit(pBitmap, pHGWire, nExternalEnergy)

pBITMAPHANDLE pBitmap;

pointer to the bitmap handle

GWIREHANDLE *pHGWire;

pointer to the Gwire handle

L_INT nExternalEnergy;

integer value that represents the value of the external energy used in constructing the minimum paths in the image

Initializes the Gwire handle to be used in finding the minimal path.

Parameter

Description

pBitmap

Pointer to the bitmap handle.

pHGWire

Pointer to the Gwire handle.

nExternalEnergy

Integer value that represents the value of the external energy used in constructing the minimum paths in the image. Possible values range from 0 to 100. The default value is 90.

Returns

SUCCESS

The function was successful.

< 1

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

GWire is an adaptation of the livewire technique for segmenting an image. Whereas livewire techniques use external energy (only) to find the boundary, GWire uses both external energy as well as internal energy, making it less sensitive to noise. The nExternalEnergy parameter balances the minimal path length with the minimal path weight.

This function initializes the GWire engine and should be called before using the L_GWireSetSeedPoint or L_GWireGetMinPath function. Free the handle generated by calling the L_DestroyGWireHandle function.

This function can only process entire images. It does not support regions.

This function supports 12- and 16-bit grayscale and 48- and 64-bit color images.
