Computes the area of a shape.

Name | Type | Description | |
---|---|---|---|

inShape | Path | ||

outArea | Real |

### Description

The operation computes the area of a shape bounded by a closed path. The area is measured in square pixels. As paths in AVS are subpixel-precise, the result may be (and usually is) non-integer.

Note that if the input path is not a valid shape (i.e. it has at least one self-intersection), the computation may lead to results that are not intuitive.

### Examples

Description of usage of this filter can be found in examples and tutorial: Mounts (Contour Analysis).
