Hello everyone, I have extracted the moving region by subtracting the video frames. Now I want to draw a rectangle over the extracted part but the problem is the pixels are not connected, thus I can't use regionprops() because it gives several boxes due to disconnected pixels. I have inserted the image where I want to draw rectangle over the extracted moving pendulum area. How can I do this. Please help. Thanks.

vertprofile = any(YourImage>0,1);
bbox_x_low = find(vertprofile, 1, 'first');
bbox_x_high = find(vertprofile, 1, 'last');
horzprofile = any(YourImage>0,2);
bbox_y_low = find(horzprofile, 1, 'first');
bbox_y_high = find(horzprofile, 1, 'last');
The way to proceed from there depends upon how you are going to draw the rectangle.

By the way, Nataliya, you can use regionprops, you'd just get all the bounding boxes and just use max and min like Walter shows, Or you could call bwconvull() to get just one region then call regionprops(). But unless you're calling regionprops for some other reason, I'd just go with Walter's method.
