Erode/Dilate Mask

Group (Subgroup)

Processing (Cleanup)

Description

If the mask is dilated, the Filter grows the true regions by one Cell in an iterative sequence for a user defined number of iterations. During the dilate process, the classification of any Cell neighboring a false Cell will be changed to true. If the mask is eroded, the Filter shrinks the true regions by one Cell in an iterative sequence for a user defined number of iterations. During the erode process, the classification of the false Cells is changed to true if one of its neighbors is true. The Filter also offers the option(s) to turn on/off the erosion or dilation in specific directions (X, Y or Z).
