Module: FoundationLite

Moves a rectangle from a local coordinate system to the absolute one.


Required when there is a rectangle defined in a local coordinate system, but the next image-related filter in the program does not have any inAlignment input.

AlignRectangle aligns the inRectangle to the inAlignment coordinate system. The input rectangle is translated, rotated and scaled.

The inAlignment is usually a coordinate system found by some template matching algorithm.


Description of usage of this filter can be found in examples and tutorial: Bottle Inspection, Parallel Enumeration, Edge-based Template Matching: Gasket, Edge-based Template Matching: Gasket (expert).

AlignRectangle performed on the sample rectangle. The inAlignment is drawn on the first image in blue.

Complexity Level

This filter is available on Basic Complexity Level.
