Code Example

//Create two 8-bit Grays-scale CuviImage objects
CuviImage gimg1 = cuvi::io::loadImage(path,CUVI_LOAD_IMAGE_GRAYSCALE);
CuviImage gimg2 = cuvi::io::loadImage(path,CUVI_LOAD_IMAGE_GRAYSCALE);

Cuvi32f* flowX = new Cuvi32f[gimg1.width() * gimg1.height()];
Cuvi32f* flowY = new Cuvi32f[gimg1.width() * gimg1.height()];

//tracking criteria
CuviTrackingCriteria tc;

//Compute optical flow between first frame and second frame
