Marks the input tensor as a sequence.
The operator modifies the layout string of the input data to indicate that the batch contains sequences. Only the layout is affected, while the data stays untouched.
The operator can be used to feed per-frame tensor arguments when procesing sequences. For example, the following snippet shows how to apply
gaussian_blurto a batch of sequences, so that a different
sigmais used for each frame in each sequence:
@pipeline_def def random_per_frame_blur(): video, _ = fn.readers.video_resize(sequence_length=50, ...) sigma = fn.random.uniform(range=[0.5, 5], shape=(50,)) blurred = fn.gaussian_blur(video, sigma=fn.per_frame(sigma)) return blurred
Note that the outermost dimension of each tensor from a batch specified as per-frame argument must match the number of frames in the corresponding sequence processed by a given operator. For instance, in the presented example, every sequence in
videobatch has 50 frames, thus the shape of
Please consult documentation of a given argument of a sequence processing operator to find out if it supports per-frame input.
If the input passed to
per-frameoperator has no layout, a new layout is set, that starts with
Fand is padded with
*to match dimensionality of the input. Otherwise, depending on the
replaceflag, the operator either checks if the first character of the layout is equal to
For replaces the character with
- Supported backends
input (TensorList) – Input to the operator.
- Keyword Arguments
bytes_per_sample_hint (int or list of int, optional, default = ) –
Output size hint, in bytes per sample.
If specified, the operator’s outputs residing in GPU or page-locked host memory will be preallocated to accommodate a batch of samples of this size.
preserve (bool, optional, default = False) – Prevents the operator from being removed from the graph even if its outputs are not used.
replace (bool, optional, default = False) – Controls handling of the input with already specified layout. If set to False, the operator errors-out if the first character of the layout is not
F. If set to True, the first character of the layout is replaced with
seed (int, optional, default = -1) –
If not provided, it will be populated based on the global seed of the pipeline.
