Creates a monochromatic image by averaging the input image channels.

Name Type Description
inImage Image Input image
inRoi Region* Range of pixels to be processed
outImage Image Output image


The operation computes the monochromatic average of inImage color channels. Average being computed at each pixel is a standard arithmetic mean.


Description of usage of this filter can be found in examples and tutorial: Rubber Ring, Rubber Ring (Simple).

AverageChannels run on example image.
