Do we need to install OpenCV to access the camera?

Hi there!

I am trying to experiment with the Matrix Creator and a new camera I have just installed. I was playing around with this:

and found out that I needed to install OpenCV, which is a rather complicated process for newbies. I wish the Matrix Creator was more friendly to people who are new to raspberry and sensors. There’s a few projects here and there, and they do mention the needed dependencies, but offer no help whatsoever to install them.

Please, don’t assume we’re all experts :slight_smile:

Anyway, the question is, when do I need OpenCV if I want to try the examples or use cases where the camera is used? And if so, do you recommend any specific way? Are you planning to include OpenCV as part of the Matrix OS?

Cheers,

Luis
