OpenCV on windows

question

#1

I’d like to ask what is the status and recommended approach for using OpenCV on windows. The OpenCV.jl uses CXX.jl for wrapping the C++ library and as such it is not really an option on Windows - the CXX package on windows is still not supported.

I know Images.jl is a very powerful package bundle and I’m using it on the daily basis, but I still miss many algorithms.

Does anybody know about other approach how to use the OpenCV fucnctionality. Did anybody try to wrap it through python interface (the way PyPlot.jl is implemented)?

I dont have a solution but could you elaborate on what functionality you require from OpenCV. Your input would help shape the development of Images package.


#3

What’s missing currently for my usecase are image registration algorithms (at least rigid body) for drift correction of image stack and Hough transformation. As I said this describes my current obstacles, but generally there is much more functionality that would be nice to have on hand (and people on Unix have it, its missing only for us running on Windows).

Well, you can also try to use the C API through ccalls (as I did here) which is more or less straightforward although cumbersome.
