I'm a total noob to openCV. I downloaded opencv-3.0.0-rc1.exe and ran it. I think it finished cleanly. I see a build directory and a sources directory. I had a look here:

but it just says, in step 4 at the top, to check the install at some path that ends with "Builds...". I can't find that. I'm in Win 7. Maybe I needed to run as admin? I don't even really know what this should look like when it's installed. I was assuming I'd be able to install it and then do "import openCV" in my current python installation (python 3.3.3).

I just want to write a simple compositing script that will lay 1 image sequence over another.

Any help appreciated!

ok, that numpy download in the first link is for 32 bit numpy? I am on win 7 64 bit. I found this link to unofficial binaries...

Am I on the right track?
