gray_dilation_shapegray_dilation_shapeGrayDilationShapeGrayDilationShapeGrayDilationShape calculates the maximum gray value of the input image ImageImageImageImageimage within a mask of shape MaskShapeMaskShapeMaskShapeMaskShapemaskShape, vertical size MaskHeightMaskHeightMaskHeightMaskHeightmaskHeight and horizontal size MaskWidthMaskWidthMaskWidthMaskWidthmaskWidth for each image point. The resulting image is returned in ImageMaxImageMaxImageMaxImageMaximageMax.

If the parameters MaskHeightMaskHeightMaskHeightMaskHeightmaskHeight or MaskWidthMaskWidthMaskWidthMaskWidthmaskWidth are of the type integer and are even, they are changed to the next larger odd value. In contrast, if at least one of the two parameters is of the type float, the input image ImageImageImageImageimage is transformed with both the next larger and the next smaller odd mask size, and the output image ImageMaxImageMaxImageMaxImageMaximageMax is interpolated from the two intermediate images. Therefore, note that gray_dilation_shapegray_dilation_shapeGrayDilationShapeGrayDilationShapeGrayDilationShape returns different results for mask sizes of, e.g., 4 and 4.0!

In case of the values 'rhombus' and 'octagon' for the MaskShapeMaskShapeMaskShapeMaskShapemaskShape control parameter, MaskHeightMaskHeightMaskHeightMaskHeightmaskHeight and MaskWidthMaskWidthMaskWidthMaskWidthmaskWidth must be equal. The parameter value 'octagon' for MaskShapeMaskShapeMaskShapeMaskShapemaskShape denotes an equilateral octagonal mask which is a suitable approximation for a circular structure. At the border of the image the gray values are mirrored.


Note that gray_dilation_shapegray_dilation_shapeGrayDilationShapeGrayDilationShapeGrayDilationShape requires considerably more time for mask sizes of type float than for mask sizes of type integer. This is especially true for rectangular masks with different width and height!

gray_dilation_shapegray_dilation_shapeGrayDilationShapeGrayDilationShapeGrayDilationShape can be executed on OpenCL devices. In case of mask sizes of type float the result can vary slightly from the CPU as the interpolation is calculated in single precision on the OpenCL device.

Note that filter operators may return unexpected results if an image with a reduced domain is used as input. Please refer to the chapter Filters.
