2013-11-19 12:42:42 -0500 asked a question prebuilt OpenCV 3.0 python module

I understand that OpenCV 3.0 is currently beta, but I wonder if it is possible to download a prebuilt cv2.pyd somewhere. I'm using windows and I'd rather not go through all the hassle of compiling it if it isn't absolutely necessary.

I've already checked google and the usual sources of python modules.

Thanks, b_m

2013-03-04 10:19:38 -0500 commented answer How Python API is generated?

I'm looking into using some functions of the C++ API, and generating the proper Python bindings seems to be the best solution so far. Here's what I wanna do: http://answers.opencv.org/question/8099/how-to-use-the-c-functions-of-opencv-from-python/ I followed your instructions and got a few header files. I don't know what to do next. Can you elaborate more?

Have you figured out a way to do this?

2013-02-26 09:11:16 -0500 asked a question How to use the C++ functions of OpenCV from Python?

I'm using the Python bindings of OpenCV and it's really great. However, there are functions in the C++ version that are missing from the Python bindings, BackgroundSubstractorMOG2 for example. I wonder what would be the easiest way for me to use the BackgroundSubstractorMOG2 or other C++ functions. I know that are existing techniques with SWIG and BOOST, also I found this answer about how the Python binding are generated. It's nice, but it's nowhere near detailed enough for me to follow.

I guess The missing functons will be implemented eventually, but I'm looking to use this one in the meantime. I'd be happy to contribute to the Python bindings if I knew how.
