Generic Bayer fileter image processing routine.

Namespace:  AForge.Imaging.Filters
Assembly:  AForge.Imaging (in AForge.Imaging.dll) Version: (


public class BayerFilter : BaseFilter


The class implements Bayer filter routine, which creates color image out of grayscale image produced by image sensor built with Bayer color matrix.

This Bayer filter implementation is made generic by allowing user to specify used Bayer pattern. This makes it slower. For optimized version of the Bayer filter see BayerFilterOptimized class, which implements Bayer filter specifically optimized for some well known patterns.

The filter accepts 8 bpp grayscale images and produces 24 bpp RGB image.

Sample usage:

// create filter
BayerFilter filter = new BayerFilter( );
// apply the filter
Bitmap rgbImage = filter.Apply( image );
