Hello JetBrains community,
I am relatively new to python, PyCharm, and Mac OS X and am having trouble getting PyCharm to use the version of OpenCV that I have. I downloaded the .tar file and built it and now there's just an OpenCV folder just WAITING to be utilized, but I don't know how to get it "into" PyCharm.
I have OpenCV-2.4.8. I followed the instructions at the following site up until he started to get into the c++ section (build and installation only): http://tilomitra.com/opencv-on-mac-osx/
I now have the OpenCV folder sitting on my desktop and I don't know how to make PyCharm import it in. According to the install guide, it should be installed in the /usr/local/ directory.
1. I'm not really sure how to navigate there to make sure.
2. I don't think it is there anyway because "from opencv.cv import *" comes up with the error "no module named opencv.cv".
3. Is OpenCV a library or a module? I'm still learning the naming scheme..
Thanks in advance,
