Where's the lib folder in opencv-master?

asked 2016-02-29 16:24:43 -0500

I'm following a book written for the older version of OpenCV (OpenCV 2 Computer Vision, by PACT) and it tells me to include the lib folder in my Visual Studio 2013 Property Manager when creating a new property sheet.

I don't see a directory called lib in the current GitHub version (opencv-master). Has this folder been replaced by something else?

the github repository contains the src tree only, no libs or binaries there. you can:

  • download that, and build the libs locally using cmake, this will create the missing folders on the fly (inside your build folder)
  • try the prebuild binaries from here (but i got no idea, what's actually inside, afaaik, there are only x64 versions vor vs2013, vs2015)

OK, thanks berak! From what folder (or how) can I cmake the libs locally? I was avoiding the pre-built binary so that I could build it with opencv_contrib.

"I was avoiding the pre-built binary " -- yes, definitely better to buildyour own.

docs here are unfortunately outdated, for now ignore all prerequisites, and go to Point 7.)

Perfect! Thanks, that's what I needed

basically, make a build folder (anywhere you like it) , startcmake there, and point it to the opencv src folder (and the opencv_contrib/modules one)
