When I install OpenCV 3.0 with Homebrew, it gives me the following directions to link it to Python 2.7:

If you need Python to find bindings for this keg-only formula, run: echo /usr/local/opt/opencv3/lib/python2.7/site-packages /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/opencv3.pth

While I can find the python2.7 site packages in opencv3, no python34 site packages were generated. Does anyone know how I can link my OpenCV 3.0 install to Python 3?

When you installed it, did you tell it to include Python 3 support? i.e.:

brew install opencv3 --with-python3

Yes, the problem is that home-brew doesn't link the .so file to the Python path.
