overpaint_region — Overpaint regions in an image.
overpaint_region paints the regions given in Region with a constant gray value into the image given in Image. These gray values can either be specified for each channel once, valid for all regions, or for each region separately. To define the latter, group the channel gray values g of each region and concatenate them to a tuple according to the regions' order, e.g., for a three channel image:
[g(channel1,region1), g(channel2,region1), g(channel3,region1), g(channel1,region2), ... ].
If the input image is of type 'direction', gray values that are not in the value range that is valid for 'direction' images are set to the value 255 to mark them as invalid. The parameter Type determines whether the region should be painted filled ('fill') or whether only its boundary should be painted ('margin').
If you do not want to modify Image itself, you can use the operator paint_region, which returns the result in a newly created image.
overpaint_region modifies the content of an already existing image (Image). Besides, even other image objects may be affected: For example, if you created Image via copy_obj from another image object (or vice versa), overpaint_region will also modify the image matrix of this other image object. Therefore, overpaint_region should only be used to overpaint newly created image objects. Typical operators for this task are, e.g., gen_image_const (creates a new image with a specified size), gen_image_proto (creates an image with the size of a specified prototype image) or copy_image (creates an image as the copy of a specified image).
Image in which the regions are to be painted.
Regions to be painted into the input image.
Desired gray values of the regions.
Default value: 255.0
Suggested values: 0.0, 1.0, 2.0, 5.0, 10.0, 16.0, 32.0, 64.0, 128.0, 253.0, 254.0, 255.0
Paint regions filled or as boundaries.
Default value: 'fill'
List of values: 'fill', 'margin'
* Paint a rectangle into a new image (New1) gen_rectangle1(Rectangle,100.0,100.0,300.0,300.0) * generate a black image gen_image_const(New1,'byte', 768, 576) * paint a white rectangle overpaint_region(New1,Rectangle,255.0,'fill')
overpaint_region returns 2 (H_MSG_TRUE) if all parameters are correct. If the input is empty the behavior can be set via set_system(::'no_object_result',<Result>:). If necessary, an exception is raised.
