ImageStatistics node

pluginIcon

This documentation is for version 1.0 of ImageStatistics.

Description

Compute image statistics over the whole image or over a rectangle. The statistics can be computed either on RGBA components, in the HSVL colorspace (which is the HSV colorspace with an additional L component from HSL), or the position and value of the pixels with the maximum and minimum luminance values can be computed.

The color values of the minimum and maximum luma pixels for an image sequence can be used as black and white point in a Grade node to remove flicker from the same sequence.

Inputs

Input Description Optional
Source   No

Controls

Parameter / script name Type Default Function
Restrict to Rectangle / restrictToRectangle Boolean On Restrict statistics computation to a rectangle.
Bottom Left / bottomLeft Double x: 0 y: 0 Coordinates of the bottom left corner of the rectangle
Size / size Double w: 1 h: 1 Width and height of the rectangle
Auto Update / autoUpdate Boolean On Automatically update values when input or rectangle changes if an analysis was performed at current frame. If not checked, values are only updated if the plugin parameters change.
Interactive Update / interactive Boolean Off If checked, update the parameter values during interaction with the image viewer, else update the values when pen is released.
Min. / statMin Color r: 0 g: 0 b: 0 a: 0 Minimum value.
Max. / statMax Color r: 0 g: 0 b: 0 a: 0 Maximum value.
Mean / statMean Color r: 0 g: 0 b: 0 a: 0 The mean is the average. Add up the values, and divide by the number of values.
S.Dev. / statSDev Color r: 0 g: 0 b: 0 a: 0 The standard deviation (S.Dev.) quantifies variability or scatter, and it is expressed in the same units as your data.
Skewness / statSkewness Color r: 0 g: 0 b: 0 a: 0
Skewness quantifies how symmetrical the distribution is.
• A symmetrical distribution has a skewness of zero.
• An asymmetrical distribution with a long tail to the right (higher values) has a positive skew.
• An asymmetrical distribution with a long tail to the left (lower values) has a negative skew.
• The skewness is unitless.
• Any threshold or rule of thumb is arbitrary, but here is one: If the skewness is greater than 1.0 (or less than -1.0), the skewness is substantial and the distribution is far from symmetrical.
Kurtosis / statKurtosis Color r: 0 g: 0 b: 0 a: 0
Kurtosis quantifies whether the shape of the data distribution matches the Gaussian distribution.
•A Gaussian distribution has a kurtosis of 0.
•A flatter distribution has a negative kurtosis,
•A distribution more peaked than a Gaussian distribution has a positive kurtosis.
•Kurtosis has no units.
•The value that this plugin reports is sometimes called the excess kurtosis since the expected kurtosis for a Gaussian distribution is 0.0.
•An alternative definition of kurtosis is computed by adding 3 to the value reported by this plugin. With this definition, a Gaussian distribution is expected to have a kurtosis of 3.0.
