David: the monthly builds require a lot of time for so many distros.
OpenCV is very large and requires an obsessive amount ofadditional time
that we simply can not justify due to low usage of the plugins.

Below is from the manual
Building OpenCV adds a lot of storage demand (4 GB) to the CINELERRA-GG
build tree, and its COMPILE TIME IS SIGNIFICANT. For these reasons,
findobject and the other 5 plugins are not included in System build
packages. The OpenCV plugins are built only in the 64-bit tarball builds,
both static and dynamic, but due to size these plugins are not included
with pkgs, i.e. the System builds. However it is relatively easy to add the
current plugins for your distro via a simple procedure of copying the
plugins from the static tarball to the cin5 install plugin path.

   1. do your package install of the current build for your distro as usual
   2. look in https://cinelerra-gg.org/download/tars to see your distro
name's tar file
   3. download the corresponding distro static tarball; for example for
debian 10:

   4. create a temporary directory on your computer
   5. cd that-directory
   6. tar -xf location-of-the-tarball-you-downloaded
   7. cp plugins/opencv/*obj.plugin <see below for your location>/. (note
the period on the end)
   8. Start CINELERRA-GG and look for the six plugins in Video Effects
   9. To reverse this, simply delete the six plugin files (for example:
          rm /usr/lib*/cin*/*obj.plugin).

The location for most User installs is:
Location for some System installs is:
          /usr/lib/cin/plugins/ (most ubuntu distros)
          /usr/lib64/cin/plugins/ (Leap distro)
