This guide will get you all set up for Python-based image processing on any x64 mashine!
This guide will get you all set up for Python-based image processing on any x64 mashine! You should also be familiar with basic usage of your system's terminal. Let's get started!
Pylon contains all the software we need for interacting with Basler cameras. Builds are provided for multiple platforms.
INSTALLfile. Do not attempt to run the pylon viewer as it is not bundled with ARM releases
Samples/Grabdirectory and execute

On a x64 Windows mashine it's quite easy to get OpenCV up and running. The easiest way is using Miniconda for the installation.
conda install -c menpo opencv3*_
4. Check your fresh installation of OpenCV by typing:
The only missing part is connecting Python to your camera now. PyPylon takes care of this task. This step is compatible with any Basler camera. If you are using other cameras check if it offers a Python interface.
cvvirtualenv you created while installing OpenCV
python --versionfrom within your virtualenv
(e.g. Python 3.5 →
4. Install the
whl file with pip via
pip install *path-to-whl*
5. Check the installation by typing:
Done! You can either try out our example projects now or create some cool stuff of your own. Have fun!
