Novel approaches based on windowed Fourier transform for demodulation of fringe patterns were previously presented [Appl. Opt. <b>43,</b> 2695–2702 (2004)], where extraction of phase and phase derivatives from either phase-shifted fringe patterns or a single-carrier fringe pattern was the main focus. I show that the same methods can be applied to process a single closed-fringe pattern in either noise reduction or phase approximation, which adds to the versatility of the windowed Fourier-transform method for fringe pattern analysis.
