I need to store ORB keypoints and descriptors inside some file, and am currently using Pickle but it is slow (~10-15 seconds to load). Is there another way that would allow for faster saving and loading?

I tried using JSON before but could not serialize the objects (since they are complicated). Could anyone provide insight?

ah, shame, so you can't use cv2.FileStorage (requires 3.2 or 3.1)

also, why do you need this ? (what are you trying to do ? need to store keypoints sounds a bit weird)

Be sure to use the higher version of Pickle protocol. Except if you have very slow I/O, it shouldn't take more than a second.

Use CPickle too, if you can. (You can find numerous benchmark between Pickle, Cpickle, Json ...on stackoverflow)

cPickle.dumps(obj, protocol=pickle.HIGHEST_PROTOCOL)
