To Substitute nvinfer->input_tensor_from_meta

Hardware Platform (Jetson / GPU) NX
• DeepStream Version 6.01
• JetPack Version (valid for Jetson only) 4.6
• TensorRT Version 8.0
I want to use a rectangle area of the input tensor for real inference, and the rectangle position and size depends the input tensor itself. So firstly I need to copy the tensor from GPU and calculate the rectangle, then I should put the data in the rectangle back to GPU(nvinfer->input_tensor_from_meta ?) . Simply speaking, to substitue the original meta_data just before inference.
Please tell me how to do. in gst-nvinfer.cpp or in gstnvdspreprocess.cpp?
And, on YUY2 usb input, what’s the colorformat?
switch (init_params->networkInputFormat) {
case NvDsInferFormat_RGB:
case NvDsInferFormat_BGR:
if(nvinfer->transform_config_params.compute_mode == NvBufSurfTransformCompute_VIC) {
else {
color_format = NVBUF_COLOR_FORMAT_RGB;
case NvDsInferFormat_GRAY:
if(nvinfer->transform_config_params.compute_mode == NvBufSurfTransformCompute_VIC) {
color_format = NVBUF_COLOR_FORMAT_NV12;
else {
color_format = NVBUF_COLOR_FORMAT_GRAY8;

Does that mean YUY2---->GRAY8 or NV12 ?

You can use the preprocess to customize your input.

No, it’s type of YUV4:2:2, UYUV. You can refer the link below:

thank you for quick reply

I am testing nvdspreprocess plugin on jetson nx, but it displays:
(p3) shisun@nx:/opt/nvidia/deepstream/deepstream-6.0/sources/gst-plugins/gst-nvdspreprocess$ gst-launch-1.0 uridecodebin uri= file:///samples/streams/sample_1080p_h264.mp4 ! m.sink_0 nvstreammux name=m batch-size=1 width=1920 height=1080 ! nvdspreprocess config-file=config_preprocess.txt ! nvinfer config-file-path=config_infer.txt input-tensor-meta=1 batch-size=1 ! nvmultistreamtiler width=1920 height=1080 ! nvvideoconvert ! nvdsosd ! nvvideoconvert ! nveglglessink
Failed to load config file: No such file or directory
** ERROR: <gst_nvinfer_parse_config_file:1303>: failed

I think it needs to compile nvdspreprocess.cpp. so,
shisun@nx:/opt/nvidia/deepstream/deepstream-6.0/sources/gst-plugins/gst-nvdspreprocess$ make

What’s the problem please? or can DS6.0 apply the preprocess plug-in?
Thank you.

You can check it in your env.
1.use gst-inspect-1.0 nvdspreprocess cli
2.check the in the /opt/nvidia/deepstream/deepstream-6.1/lib path

Thank you.
