The operation creates a region in a shape of a one-pixel-wide cross. Cross is described by its width, height and coordinates of upper-left corner of its bounding box.

The inFrameWidth and inFrameHeight parameters most often should be set equal to the dimensions of the image this region will be used with. If the input cross exceeds these dimensions, the output region will be cropped.


  • Remember to set inFrameWidth and inFrameHeight inputs to specify the region frame.


CreateCrossRegion run with inCrossBoundingBox parameters: X = 50, Y = 100, Width = 200, inCrossHeight = 100.
