Universal Pyramids

The functions described in this section operate with universal image pyramids. These pyramids use separable symmetric kernel (not only Gaussian type) and downsampling/upsampling with arbitrary factor (not only 2). The next pyramid layer can be built for an image of an arbitrary size. These pyramids are used in some computer vision algorithms, for example, in optical flow calculations.
All universal pyramid functions use the mirrored border.
Example  shows how to build pyramids and calculate the optical flow for two images.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
