[vtkusers] VTK vs. OpenCV for computer vision

Hi Joshua,
From my own limited vtk user experience, it’s easy to write simple image processing algorithms like a Sobel filter in vtk.   For more complicated stuff, I think the main disadvantage would be that the scalar type of the image buffer is not represented to the outside world by a template, so if you want to write algorithms where the inputs and outputs involve more than two unknown scalar types, the switch statements get very cumbersome.

Howdy ,
Can vtk be used in vision (robotics) like open-cv ?
