Note: Openpose lib is under heavy development and the API changes very often. Some API changes will break PyOpenPose. I try to upgrade as soon as possible but I am usually a few days behind. Openning an issue helps to speed-up the proccess. Current PyOpenPose version is built with openpose commit e382698
Note: PyOpenPose requires opencv3.x. You will have to build openpose with opencv3 as well.

mkdir build cd build cmake .. make
Add the folder containing PyOpenPose.so to your PYTHONPATH.
Check the scripts folder for python examples using PyOpenPose.
