Astra SDK & OpenCV linking conflict

Hello to all who are from Orbbec.

This may concern you because It’s not possible to use new OpenCV versions along side Astra SDK and it’s API.

It fails and have be failing since last 1.5 year.

If it’s not possible to use OpenCV alongside Astra SDk then Astra cameras will never be a part of computer vision based applications. It has it’s own .so or .dll files for own purpose.

It’s very much unappealing because in 2019 we can not use OpenCv 2.4.8. Need some new functionalities.

Hope you are going to look in to this issue.


Is this true still?
Can you instead use it with OpenNI instead of Astra SDK?
