LBitmap::GWireInit

#include "ltwrappr.h"

virtual L_INT LBitmap::GWireInit(pHGWire, nExternalEnergy)

GWIREHANDLE *pHGWire;

pointer to the Gwire handle

L_INT nExternalEnergy;

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

Changes the color of each pixel in the class objects bitmap to the median color of pixels in its neighborhood. This is similar to the LBitmap::AverageFilter function, but it is used for noise reduction, rather than a blur effect.

Parameter

Description

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 LBitmap::GWireSetSeedPoint or LBitmap::GWireGetMinPath function. Free the handle generated by calling the LBitmap::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.
