Hello everybody!

I have qustions: How can sufficient open and save .raw images in

Matlab, without losing any information, byte order...

Thank you for you help!

If I recall correctly there is no one format for raw

images. Different camera manufacturers have their own

format. Thus it may not be an easy solution. However; if

you check the Matlab help (search for raw) some information

is available for imread and imwrtie. Possibly this info is

applicable to what you are trying to do.

- ok...i found that multibandread and multibandwrite do their job ok!
But

multibandwrite is very slowly...my code is:

multibandwrite(16BPP_data,[resultPath1,'

name.raw'],'bip',[1,1,1],

[512,640,1],'precision','uint16');

is there something that will do things faster...

OR

Is there any other solution instead this function

thanks!!!

information

is

You might try DCRAW. It is a C program that reads and

converts most if not all camera RAW formats to TIFF or

PPM. I don't know how fast it is compared to

multibandread, but an 8 mega-pixel Canon CR2 file converts

to 16-bit per color TIFF in about 14 seconds on my laptop.

The resulting TIFF file is 46Mb. The import wizard or

imread loads the TIFF into an NxMx3 uint16 matrix in less

than 1 sec.

Thank you for your answer!!

But for me is necessary that i saw data in .raw format as it does

multibandwrite function.

I am quite happy with multibandread fastness.

and i'm sorry that i didnt mention before, i have 16BPP grayscale

image (with MSB setting to zero)...it just must be in that way

So, do you have any other solution?

Thank you in advance !

Yes i tried, but it seems that it doesn't work properly.. i dont know

why...but when i do some processing the result i right only when i use

multibandread and multibandwrite...

like:

multibandwrite(image2,[PathName,filename

.raw'],'bip',[1,1,1],

[512,640,1],'precision','uint16');

And

image16H = multibandread([resultPath2,fname], [512 640 1],'*uint16',

0, 'bip', 'ieee-le');

Any suggestion?

Define slowly. Put a "tic" before the multibandwrite, and a "toc"

afterward, and see how long it actually takes.

Another solution (given your simple format) is to just use fwrite to

output the data:

fid = fopen('name.raw', 'wb');

fwrite(fid, 16BPP_data, 'uint16')

fclose(fid);

You might need to transpose 16BPP_data.

I defined slowly:

Elapsed time is 27.834668 seconds.

but i found the trick!

this is why i set parameter Method: Band-Interleaved-by-Pixel, 'bip'.

Then i changed this parameter to Band-Sequential, 'bsq' and now the

time is

Elapsed time is 0.076887 seconds.

So...now is everything ok! i suppose...

thank you for your answers anyway!

regards
