thanks for jumping in. At the moment im using none of the interfaces you mentioned... I didn't make it very clear that in this case I'm also not passing an image through or creating it, but rather just need to get the image data from an imagelink (upstream) and analyze it. I guess I was hoping for a general guideline on how the imagelink type works or rather what i have to be aware of... Node workshop material? :D
The way it works in the specific example I was working on last:
a sdk-specific frame object has to be created out of width, height, byte array, pixelformat, timestamp.
new Affdex.Frame(bitmap.Width, bitmap.Height, rgbValues, Affdex.Frame.COLOR_FORMAT.RGB, stopwatch.ElapsedMilliseconds);
Right now I have a method that will extract the byte array from a bitmap (marshal copy) which i will then use for the Affdex.Frame
If I don't get you totally wrong, then your last question doesn't really apply in this case, as I'm only analyzing the image, right?
The code (draft) is on github
