Many toolbox functions can operate on multidimensional arrays
and, consequently, can operate on image sequences. (For more information,
see What Is an Image Sequence?.)
For example, if you pass a multidimensional array to the imtransform
function,
it applies the same 2D transformation to all 2D planes along the
higher dimension.
Some toolbox functions that accept multidimensional arrays, however, do not by default interpret an mbynbyp or an mbynby3byp array as an image sequence. To use these functions with image sequences, you must use particular syntax and be aware of other limitations. The following table lists these toolbox functions and provides guidelines about how to use them to process image sequences. For information about displaying image sequences, see View Image Sequences in Video Viewer App.
