Type: Emgu.CVImageGray, Byte
The first 8-bit single-channel input image
Type: Emgu.CVImageGray, Byte
The second input image of the same size and the same type as prevImg
Type: Emgu.CVImageGray, Single
The computed flow image for x-velocity; will have the same size as prevImg
Type: Emgu.CVImageGray, Single
The computed flow image for y-velocity; will have the same size as prevImg
Type: SystemDouble
Specifies the image scale (!1) to build the pyramids for each image. pyrScale=0.5 means the classical pyramid, where each next layer is twice smaller than the previous
Type: SystemInt32
The number of pyramid layers, including the initial image. levels=1 means that no extra layers are created and only the original images are used
Type: SystemInt32
The averaging window size; The larger values increase the algorithm robustness to image noise and give more chances for fast motion detection, but yield more blurred motion field
Type: SystemInt32
The number of iterations the algorithm does at each pyramid level
Type: SystemInt32
Size of the pixel neighborhood used to find polynomial expansion in each pixel. The larger values mean that the image will be approximated with smoother surfaces, yielding more robust algorithm and more blurred motion field. Typically, poly n=5 or 7
Type: SystemDouble
Standard deviation of the Gaussian that is used to smooth derivatives that are used as a basis for the polynomial expansion. For poly n=5 you can set poly sigma=1.1, for poly n=7 a good value would be poly sigma=1.5
Type: Emgu.CV.CvEnumOpticalflowFarnebackFlag
