I am trying to process images of very high aspect ratio defects (on the order of 100:1) with Mathematica (perhaps using movies)? I am trying to analyze long, thin, defects in coated film. If I take a picture of a section of them, I can analyze the shape of the section using Insert>Picture>From File. The problem is the sections look like:
I want to analyze the full length with the maximum resolution I can get. I can capture a "panoramic" shot as a jpg, but the maximum ratio is only 4:1. I would like to get more like 100:1 aspect ratio. If I had a line scan camera, it would be simple, but I am hoping to capture a movie to and convert it to a high aspect image to analyze defects (essentially doing a line scan of the movie in Mathematica). It seems like it should be simple, but I have no clue how to do this.
