Setting up OpenCV 3.0 Gold to work with Python 3.x on Windows

asked 2015-08-25 00:54:36 -0600


I am trying to setup the latest release of OpenCV to work with my Python 3 environment. I found this tutorial ( which details the setup for Python 2.7 using the precompiled cv2.pyd bindings. Unfortunately, I did not find similar bindings for Python 3.0 (they don't seem to be included with the OpenCV 3.0 binary) and most of the discussions regarding the topic on this forum or StackExchange are over a year old. Seeing as the last two news updates regarding OpenCV3 mentioned improved Python 3 support I had assumed setup would be a simple issue.

If anybody could point me in the right direction that would be much appreciated.

you will have to build from src, like described in the 2nd part of your tutorial link above.

I have the same problem. Could you provide precompiled cv2.pyd ?
