The module TypeFromScalars converts input voxels of scalar data type to an output image of scalar or vector type.

This is done component-wise, that means each component of each voxel of the output image is composed from a number of voxels of the input image. Hence the x-extent of the output image is the nth fraction of the extent of the input image if the voxels of the output image have n components.


It requires another conversion step with InterleaveDimension to get the data correctly formatted in the x-dimension.


While composing the output image voxels the components are implicitly cast to double or integer values; this might lead to a precision loss on long double or int64 values on some platforms.


Default Panel


Input Fields


name: input0, type: Image

The input image of scalar voxels. On non-scalar voxels the output image is invalidated.

Output Fields


name: output0, type: Image

The output image with an x-extent n times smaller than the input image where n is given by the number of components of the output voxels.

Parameter Fields

Visible Fields

Output Type

name: outputType, type: Enum, default: double

Sets the output data type.
