- If your images are all the same size then edit the header or prototype file to hard code the correct number of bytes for your camera.
- You may be able to use the reshape method on libpointer to change the size of data.
Matlab: Retrieve data from libstruct field where actual data exceeds struct layout
3 views (last 30 days)
I am failing to access image pixel data using the C interface of LibRaw from within MATLAB.
DllDef libraw_processed_image_t* libraw_dcraw_make_mem_image(libraw_data_t* lr, int *errc);
enum LibRaw_image_formats type;
unsigned int data_size;
unsigned char data;
Invoking the function call from MATLAB:
perror = libpointer('int32Ptr',0);
pim = calllib('libraw', 'libraw_dcraw_make_mem_image', obj.handle, perror);
image = zeros(pim.Value.data_size, 'uint8');
% copy *pim.Value.data_size* bytes of memory starting at *pim.Value.data* into image
I am at a loss as to how I access/copy the memory starting at the address of pim.Value.data. Unsurprisingly MATLAB treats it as a single byte

The placement of a small array at the end of a structure and indexing into it is a common practice that is not supported by the C standard or by MATLAB. There are extensions that have been added to C99 for 'flexible array members' that MATLAB may not be able to support ether.
It is possible there may be a way to extract the data in pim using MATLAB but I am not sure. You may be better off creating a mex file that directly accesses libraw or using an entirely different way to load the image into MATLAB.
Things to try:
