# fft question

Started by July 31, 2010
```hi,

can anyone tell me how to perform 2d fft? what i understood for 2d fft is
that for each rows we perform individual fft's and place the result on the
respective rows and similarly for the columns. what i mean is suppose i
have an array of 2d data as:

0000
0110
0110
0000

now what i am trying to do is calculate fft (4 point fft instead of 16
point fft) of the first row (0000) and place the result in first row,
calculate the fft for the second row (0110) and place the result in second
row and so on. similarly for column calculate the fft for first column
(0000) and place the result in the first column and so on. so will this
work and will i get the same result as of 16 point fft?

thanks

```

Have I seen this before, or did I have a prescient dream?

You're right. The only thing that changed was the sender's name.
Both are from an Indian IP (BSNL Internet, no reverse).

Maybe he's not happy with the response and the deadline for the
homework is pressing.
