    OpenCV2 in Alchemy

    orgicus Community Member

      Hello,

       

      I have been playing with Alexander Mochanov's flash-opencv project in Alchemy 1

      and I've managed to compile and use the example, but as soon as I've tried using some

      other functions in OpenCV2 I ran into issues:

      https://github.com/bonext/flash-opencv/issues/1#issuecomment-5435160

       

      One major problem is that along the way I had to comment out SSE2,SSE3 instructions

      from the c++ code , which meant a loss in performance.

       

      Overall my first Alchemy experience wasn't fun:

      1. Hard to workout what issues/error were/meant and ran into them quite often
      2. I couldn't use most of the features of the library I was planning to use

       

      My questions are:

      1. Would I be able to use OpenCV2 with Alchemy 2 ? If so, will it be any better, or the same sort of hacky experience where more time time is spent debugging/fixing than getting stuff done ?
      2. If an application would use Alchemy2 and Stage3D, but would be free/wouldn't generate any revenue, would that mean it's possible to use Alchemy2 for free ?

       

      Thanks,

      George
