Opencv build and install Visual Studio 2017 Contrib library

Easy install and build of Opencv 3+ tested on 3.2 version with contributor library and additional features described step by step, picture by picture. After this tutorial you can modify setting of CMAKE project according to HW possibilities and available libraries to build your own Opencv library. Most of the time, Prebuild libs with already generated DLL, LIBS are used to start project and coding. In case, that new visual studio 2017 is available there is no prebuild libraries for VS141, Thich is from my point of view confusing naming of Libraries compatible with Visual Studio 2017.
Opencv Visual Studio 2017 build

Opencv VS 2017 install options

Alternatives to this tutorial. You can skip this. 
  1. There is possibility use some compatibility pack downloaded to VS140 and use same prebuild library as in case of Visual Studio 2015 this is described here
  2. The second way is to try use some prebuild NUGET package. I am using nugets a lot. Simple installation under one line of code inside nuget packages console. here

Opencv Install and Build in Visual studio 2017 prerequisites 

Do not afraid. There is lots of tricky parts for sure. You can miss some prerequisites for sure. You can fail many times. My last compilation has one error to link Python. I do not care. Library, I need are fine.
  1. Download CMAKE, I am using this version in the example.
https://cmake.org/download/
Choose windows installer Windows (Win32 Installer) cmake-3.4.0-win32-x86.exe
Install CMAKE

     2. Install Visual studio 2017 Community, with C++ and C support, maybe also cross platform C++ and C. This is lots of space around 20 gigs per installation. Who knows what is inside. :)

Download Opencv from github

I have created opencv32 folder in c:/.

Opencv Install and Build in Visual studio 2017
To this folder i extract from following links the source code Opencv 3.2.0 and opencv_contrib-3.2.0
just unzip here.
Create here one blank folder opencv21build
https://github.com/opencv/opencv/releases
https://github.com/opencv/opencv_contrib/releases

 Opencv Install and Build in Visual studio 2017


Configure CMAKE OPENCV project 

Cmake configure project for Visual studio 2017 and checking what is available to be build with your own opencv libraries, ffmpeg, opencv, cuda and others.
Add path to opencv-3.2.0, where is the base opencv source code and to the empty folder created by you called build. 
Opencv Install and Build in Visual studio 2017
Now you need to specify path to Visual studio 2017 compiler for C and C++.  Mine are on the picture.

Opencv Install and Build in Visual studio 2017
You can several times hit configure. Until you have some list of possible settings like on image below. Use different settings and configuration options. Just pick up solution you want. FFMPEG, OPENCL support and generate OPENCV.SLN file inside yout opencv32 build folder. 

Opencv Install and Build in Visual studio 2017
Do not choose averythink but cmake check and configure also only what is possible.. 

Opencv Extra Modules contrib libraries 

This is great source of modern algorithm to use. CNN, advanced tracking and detection like waldboost. Just in your cmake fill OPENCV_EXTRA_MODULES_PATH and put here path, where you extract zip from contributor git repository. HIT in cmake generate and yout Opencv.SLN file is upgraded. 

Opencv Install and Build in Visual studio 2017

Build and Install opencv 

Open from Visual studio 2017 generated opencv.sln file inside opencv32build. 
Opencv Install and Build in Visual studio 2017

Visual studio just ask you if you want to upgrade toolchain to Visual studio 2017. Cmake just generate 2015 but visual studio upgrade this anyway,

In solution menu you just see all you want to build like on picture.


  1. FIRST just select DEBUG, x64 version like on picture, click right mouse on Entire solution and hit BUILD solution like on picture.  Opencv Install and Build in Visual studio 2017
  2. Second you need to switch from DEBUG to RELEASE and build the solution again. This build also cmake target install, (you can see this under install) where is your installation located. 


Opencv Install and Build in Visual studio 2017

You can see my release build 114 modules and 0 fails. It should works. And works.
Your installation isn under opencv32build/install

Opencv Install and Build in Visual studio 2017
There is located header files in include and x64 libraries and DLL. Opencv Install and Build in Visual studio 2017

This is your own build of opencv with specification to HW and software for any new release of Visual Studio. This is 2017. 

NOW use same setting like to install Visual studio project as usual. Headers and libs you have build. 

Opencv  Visual studio 2017

  1. Hello! i get this error when the build (in debug mode) has finalized:
    LNK 1104 Can not open file python36_d.lib.

    Replies
    1. I was getting LNK1104 for opencv_calib3d
      to fix this, I added the file location into CMake under opencv extra modules...you might wanna try doing the same for the python3 modules

      Delete
    2. Build without python support. Or install what you need to build with python properly..

Farneback Optical flow Opencv simple C++ tutorial and code to achieve optical flow and farneback optical flow of moving an object in opencv video. Lets check the video example and the achieved result on my blog. Working and well describe code is included. 

Optical Flow Farneback parameters remarksYou need 2 images at least to calculate optical flow, the previous image (prevgray) and current image (img).  !! The previous image must be initialized first !!  Both images have to be gray scale. 
Result is computer in flowUmat which has same size as inputs but format is CV_32FC2

0.4- image pyramid or simple image scale
1 is number of pyramid layers. 1 mean that flow is calculated only from previous image.  12 is win size.. Flow is computed over the window larger value is more robust to the noise.  2 mean number of iteration of algorithm 8 is polynomial degree expansion recommended value are 5 - 7 1.2 standard deviation used to smooth used derivatives recommended values from 1.1 - 1,5

Install opencv Visual Studio 2015

Install opencv for Visual Studio 2015  Opencv tutorial how to build opencv from source in Visual Studio 2015. This is usefull when the new version just release and there is no prebuild library awailable..  If you download prebuild libs for windows Visual studio some times agou there is problem the newest VS just mussing. Lets checkt the version of libraries and VS.
Prebuild libs are only for version VC11 and VC12. This mean Visual Studio 2012 and 2013.

This step helps you compile your own opencv libs for VC14  - Visual Studio 2015 Community edition.

Important !!
 Now a days just use NUGET packages in Visual studio and you can code under 1 minutes. here.

Prepare third party libs for opencv  This step depends on your requirements. If you want python lets install python. But i can reccomend to install following parts.

Code is simple and installation is the key.. 
Windows use nugets packages Linux you have to install and build Opencv With FFMPEG. Also simple.  It is easy to capture video in OpenCV Video capture
 in OpenCV is a really easy task, but for a little bit experienced user. 
What is the problem?
The problem is the installation of Opencv without recommended dependencies.

Just install all basic libs that are recommended on the website.

Opencv reading IP camera, Video stream, Web camera, images and

Opencv reading video files, reading video stream, Images, IP and Web cameras. I would like to cover this all in one post. Yes, video writer is also important to store your results and achievements in video. There is couple of simple trick and if you follow them, you will never have a problem with the reading and writing video, stream, files in future. Basic opencv web camera reading There is couple think you need to take care. My favorite installation on windows platform is trough NUGET package system. It is easy in few steps. I describe this many times for example VS 2017 here. Nuget set up your project without any linking settings, library path selection, global environmental variables and you can directly start coding in few seconds. Just select and install nuget and compile code below. Nothing else.  You need to take care if you have included several thinks. highgui.hpp core.hpp, imgproc.hpp, videoio, imgcodecs. All of them are not necessary to read the web camera but for example…

Head and people detection in opencv

LBP cascade for detect head and people in opencv  LBP cascade free to download to use in opencv to detect people and heads. Code example and cascade description. All you need to write your own people head detector from the youtube video.
Cascade is trained on my own people and head datasets. There are no perfect but in some cases are better then default opencv cascades. They are just different.. For example you can count that the head detector have much more false detection than the people detector.. The shape and feature space is much more common and close to others shapes than the whole people detector.


Issues with opencv detectMultiScale head and people detector Please let me know if cascades worked as expected.. In code example there is ground threshold settings and reccomentation. 



LBP cascade head detection properties Sure you can find inside file.

Opencv C++ Tutorial Mat resize

Opencv Mat Resize   Resize the Mat or Image in the Opencv C++ tutorial. It is obviously simple task and important to learn. This tutorial is visualized step by step and well-described each of them. The main trick is in that simple code.

Mat Input;
Mat Resized;
int ColumnOfNewImage = 60;
int RowsOfNewImage = 60;
resize(Input, Resized, Size(ColumnOfNewImage,RowsOfNewImage));

This code just takes an Input image and resized save to output Mat. How big is the resized image is based on the Size? Size just contains two parameters. Simple numbers of how the result should be big. The simple number of columns (width) and rows (height). That is basically it. Enjoy

                                                Boring same face again and again. 


Load Image, resize and save Opencv C++ #include <Windows.h> #include "opencv2\highgui.hpp" #include "opencv2\imgproc.hpp" #include "opencv2\video\background_segm.hpp" #include "opencv2\video\tracking.hpp"

Opencv 3.1 people detection by CascadeClassifier

People detection by Cascade Classifier Opencv The comparison of Opencv Cascade for people detections. Default opencv cascades are good one. You can simply achive better result but you need to collect the training data. On my blog you can find the datasets for car detection. There is more than 2000 positives car samples available for you and test to learn your own detector..  Here in this article, I just want to show my cascade compare to cascade which are default in opencv.  LBP cascade for people detection Also I recently publish LBP cascade for people detection. You can download 12 stage LBP cascade LBP cascade for download. There is couple or maybe more than 3 tutorials how to use detect multiscale in opencv. Just download the LBP cascade and enjoy coding in Opencv..
