Hi, Sorry if this is not the right forum but, I didn't know who else to turn to. I have a quite simple process. I use FFTW library to take a forward fft of a one dimensional signal and then do some multiplication in freq. domain and then a backward (inverse) fft. (called in a C++ code). I check the result with matlab (as I understand matlab uses the same library). The forward result is identical in both matlab and my C++ code, but the backward fft is completely off mark, this is the relevant code: (I use the number of samples in the signal for number of frequency samples, nfft) fftwf_complex* m_array; for (int i= 0; i < ns; i++) m_array[i][0] = some_values; m_array[i][1] = some_other_values; } // take forward fft fftwf_plan p = 0; p = fftwf_plan_dft_1d(size, (fftwf_complex*) &m_array[0][0],(fftwf_complex*) &m_array[0][0],FFTW_FORWARD, FFTW_ESTIMATE); fftwf_execute(p); fftwf_destroy_plan(p); // m_array now contains correct coefficients // take backward fft, this should get me back to my original data // but it doesn't fftwf_plan p = 0; p = fftwf_plan_dft_1d(size, (fftwf_complex*) &m_array[0][0],(fftwf_complex*) &m_array[0][0],FFTW_BACKWARD, FFTW_ESTIMATE); fftwf_execute(p); fftwf_destroy_plan(p); // m_array is now filled with rubbish appreciate any help, Kamran

Sorry guys, disregard the whole thing. Id forgotten to normalize after taking inverse. stupid.

Just to help others who might be having issues, here's link to my CFFTWWrapper class (includes usage code as well) that uses FFTW. Made it as a plugin for Image Apprentice couple of years ago. http://code.google.com/p/cfftwwrapper/ best regards, Divya Rathore www.adislindia.com
