I am trying to get a live video input to be shown in a place of an image I added to my application.
I followed some steps provided by our professor, however, I keep getting the error provided in the image!
Those are all of the objects I have
properties (Access = public)
This is the function that is supposed to view the live video in the place of the image.
vid = videoinput('winvideo');
hImage = image(app.Image,zeros(720 ,1280, 3));
app.Image.XLim = [0,1280];
app.Image.YLim = [0, 720];
app.Image.XTick = ;
app.Image.YTick = ;
And lastly, this is the error I'm getting
Error using image
Image cannot be a child of Image.
Error in HandGApp (line 121)

I found a similar question which talks about plotting a Line on a live Image Preview. In your case you want to add image only, I suggest creating an axes first and then plot the image to that axes. This image can then be previewed on the video. Currently app.Image looks like an Image already on which another Image object cannot be plotted, thus you may need to create an axes first. Code in the similar question can help you to resolve the error.
