create_template_rot — Preparing a pattern for template matching with rotation.
create_template_rot is obsolete and is only provided for reasons of backward compatibility. New applications should use the shape-based or NCC-based operators instead.
The operator create_template_rot preprocesses a pattern, which is passed as an image, for the template matching. An extension to create_template the matching can applied to rotated patterns. The parameters AngleStart and AngleExtend define the maximum rotation of the pattern: AngleStart specifies the maximum counter clockwise rotation and AngleExtend the maximum clockwise rotation relative to this angle. Therefore AngleExtend has to be smaller than . With the parameter AngleStep the maximum angle resolution (on the highest resolution level) can be specified.
You have to be aware, that all possible rotations are calculated beforehand to reduce runtime during matching. This leads to a higher execution time for create_template_rot and high memory requirements for the template. The amount of memory depends on the parameters AngleExtend and AngleStep. The number of pyramid levels can be neglected. If A is the number of pixels of Template, the memory M needed for the template in byte is about:
After the transformation, a number (TemplateID) is assigned to the template for being used in the further process.
A description of the other parameters can be found at the operator create_template.
You have to be aware, that depending on the resolution a large number of pre calculated patterns have to be created which might result in a large amount of memory needed.
This operator returns a handle. Note that the state of an instance of this handle type may be changed by specific operators even though the handle is used as an input parameter by those operators.

If the parameters are valid, the operator create_template_rot returns the value 2 (H_MSG_TRUE). If necessary an exception is raised.
