Hi everyone! I am new to MATLAB Image Processing and I need your help. I need to build a code that calculates this instantaneous apparent brightness m_inst, related to the straight line in figure. The exposure time of the frame that I have attached here is one second. Can anyone help me?
I have worked on a code like this to obtain the brightness of the pixels belonging to that straight line but I don't know if it is useful for the calculation of apparent brightness:
B=bwareafilt(imbinarize(A-medfilt2(A,[5,5])) ,1) ;
pixelValues=A(B)
figure
imshow(B) yanqi liu on 14 Oct 2021
clc; clear all; close all;
B=bwareafilt(imbinarize(A-medfilt2(A,[5,5])) ,1) ;
res=mean2(double(A(B)))
res = 230.1644
figure
imshow(B) yanqi liu on 14 Oct 2021
clc; clear all; close all;
B=bwareafilt(imbinarize(A-medfilt2(A,[5,5])) ,1) ;
C=A.*uint8(B);
ci = unique(C(:));
ci_sum = 0;
for i = 1 : length(ci)
if ci(i) > 0
ci_num = length(find(C(:)==ci(i)));
ci_sum = ci_sum + ci_num;
end
end
n = length(find(C(:)>0));
csky = length(find(C(:)==0));
t = 1;
minist = 30 - 2.5*log10((ci_sum-n*csky)/t)
minist = 10.7431 - 3.4109i
figure

Thank you for your idea but I think that something is wrong: for this frame that I have attached here and also for others frame that I have, the value of ci_sum and n is always the same; another problem is the fact that the final result, m_inst, is a complex value but it must be a real value.
