hi i have a vector with 3 columns that contain y, cb and cr values of ycbcr. when i use ycbcr2rgb function with this vector as a input the output values only are 0 and 1 which are wrong. can you help me why i have this problem?

Perhaps this will help explain:
% Make ycbcr a double array in the range 0-1.
ycbcrD = rand(5, 3)
% rgbD will also be a double array in the range 0-1.
rgbD = ycbcr2rgb(ycbcrD)
% Make ycbcr a uint8 array in the range 0-255.
ycbcrU = randi(256, 5, 3, 'uint8') - 1
% rgb will also be a uint8 array in the range 0-255.
rgbU = ycbcr2rgb(ycbcrU)
In the command window:
ycbcrD =
