Switching to OpenCV 3.0.0-tp2 / Version control: 2.4.8, my previous working code using findContours() fails

ret, frame =
edges = cv2.Canny(frame,100,200)
contours, hierarchy = cv2.findContours( edges, cv2.RETR_TREE, cv2.CHAIN_APPROX_SIMPLE)
>>> too many values to unpack

Best regards

yes, that seems to have changed in 3.0.

>>> import cv2

>>> help(cv2.findContours)

Help on built-in function findContours in module cv2:


findContours(image, mode, method[, contours[, hierarchy[, offset]]]) -> image, contours, hierarchy

so, you probably need:

_, contours, hierarchy = cv2.findContours(...)

(one more return value)
