...create an input picture
The input picture encloses the data in the input grid. The
input grid is located on the left side of the simulator. It contains two
types of cells: regular cells are shown as squares and boundary
cells as rectangles half or quarter the size of a normal cell.
The initial input values are -1.0 (white) and the default
drawing value is 1.0 (black). There are many ways to create
a new input image:
If one of the three buttons below is pressed, the entire grid (except
boundary cells) is influenced:
To invert the input picture press the invert button. This will multiply
the input value of every cell by -1.
You can paint an input image with the mouse as in every common paint program.
This also works while the simulator is running (see How
to...start integration process).
If you don't change the "pen" value, the default value 1.0 (black) is
used. To select a new value you have to change to the input
& state section using the simulator menu :
In this section you can either select one of the predefined values
or enter a value manually. Values greater than 1.0 are shown as
values less than -1.0 green.
To view the value of one specific cell use SHIFT+Mouse. With
this facility you can find out what value hides behind a given color (or
cell). For more information see How
to...view input/state/output of a single cell.
To copy the a picture between the output and the input of the CNN or back,
use the copy buttons between the two grids:
