In this post I’m sharing a couple of very simple tricks to perform an efficient Rotate or Flip (Mirror) operation on OpenCV Mat images.
This is a post that many people have requested recently. I’m going to describe how you can use OpenCV in Unity. Of course we’ll be using official OpenCV libraries and not any assets or existing plugins. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the subject, Unity is a very popular game engine which allows […]
In this post I’m sharing the pre-built libraries and binaries for OpenCV that I use to build Qt/QML and OpenCV powered apps for Android (armeabi-v7a) phones. An example of such application is Quick-Camera-CV which I shared its source codes in a previous post.
I have avoided using QML for long time and always wrote even the most simple applications using Qt Widgets and C++ code but the release of Qt’s Quick Controls 2 and Material Style just made it very irresistible and I had to go for it. Well it didn’t take too long to get a hold of things […]
This one is taken from one of my favourite books (OpenGL 4.0 Shading Language Cookbook) and the relevant chapter’s title for this tutorial in the book is called “Implementing diffuse, per-vertex shading with a single point light source”. Of course it’s modified to use OpenGL ES in Qt which is more cross-platform and creates less […]
First of all let’s briefly go through what’s an OBJ File. Here’s a very brief description from Wikipedia: “OBJ (or .OBJ) is a geometry definition file format first developed by Wavefront Technologies for its Advanced Visualizer animation package. The file format is open and has been adopted by other 3D graphics application vendors.” Anyway, I’ll […]
If you’re a regular Qt user (like me) and have tried writing Android applications with Qt then you must have come across situations where you’ve needed some very simple capabilities of Android API but it wasn’t present in the Qt library. Displaying a Toast message in Qt for Android is one of those situations. In […]
You can use Cascade Trainer GUI to easily train and test your cascade classifiers. It has a very simple user interface which helps with everything related to training cascade classifier that are usable with OpenCV. Starting from preparing the positive and negative image data set, its cropper tool will help you with quickly preparing your training data set. […]
I have tried numerous methods to get an application’s own version number and believe me this is the best way to get it. First of all if we consider the fact that setting a Qt application version is done in PRO file (qmake) using the following simple command: VERSION = 126.96.36.199 Then getting this same […]
When using Qt creator following error starts rising up when Xcode gets updated to version 8.0 and it’s because of a change that is not yet applied in Qt settings. In my case it happened with Qt 5.7 and Xcode 8.0 on Mac OS X El Capitan but I think it’s safe to assume similar […]
