NAME

       opencv_createsamples - create training and testing samples

SYNOPSIS

       opencv_createsamples [options]

DESCRIPTION

       opencv_createsamples  creates  positive samples from a single object image or a collection
       of positive images.

       The scheme of test samples creation is similar to training  samples  creation  since  each
       test  sample  is  a  background  image into which a randomly distorted and randomly scaled
       instance of the object picture is pasted at a random position.

OPTIONS

       opencv_createsamples supports the following options:

       -info collection_file_name
              A database of positive source images. Use it together  with  -img  to  create  test
              samples instead.

       -img image_file_name
              A positive source image. Use it together with -info to create test samples instead.

       -vec vec_file_name
              The output file name containing the generated positive samples for training.

       -bg background_file_name
              The  background  description  file (the negative sample set). It contains a list of
              images into which randomly distorted versions of the object are pasted for positive
              sample generation.

       -num number_of_samples
              The number of positive samples to generate/train. The default is 1000.

       -bgcolor background_color
              The background color (currently grayscale images are assumed); the background color
              denotes the transparent color. The default is 0.

       -inv   Invert the colors.

       -maxidev max_intensity_deviation
              The desired maximum intensity deviation of foreground samples pixels.  The  default
              is 40.

       -maxxangle max_x_rotation_angle
              The maximum rotation angle in x-direction in radians. The default is 1.1.

       -maxyangle max_y_rotation_angle
              The maximum rotation angle in y-direction in radians. The default is 1.1.

       -maxzangle max_z_rotation_angle
              The maximum rotation angle in z-direction in radians. The default is 0.5.

       -show [scale_factor]
              Show  each  created sample during the creation process. Optionally a scaling factor
              can be defined. The default is 4.0.

              If <ESC> is pressed,  the  creation  process  will  continue  without  showing  the
              samples. This can be useful for debugging purposes.

       -h sample_height
              For  the  creation  of  training  samples,  it is the resulting sample height.  The
              default is 24.

              In case of creating test samples,  it  is  the  minimal  height  of  placed  object
              picture.

       -w sample_width
              For  the  creation  of  training  samples,  it  is the resulting sample width.  The
              default is 24.

              In case of creating test samples, it is the minimal width of placed object picture.

       The  same  information  is  shown,  if  opencv_createsamples   is   called   without   any
       arguments/options.

EXAMPLES

       To create training samples from one image applying distortions and show the results:

              opencv_createsamples -img source.png -num 10 -bg negatives.dat -vec samples_out.vec
              -show

       To create training samples of size 40x40 from some images without applying distortions:

              opencv_creasamples -info source.dat -vec samples_out.vec -w 40 -h 40
