After experimenting with the Augment app and markers, I discovered the FLARToolkit (Flash Augmented Reality Toolkit, made by Tomhoiko Kayama, aka. Saqoosha) which can allow me to create and use a number of COLLADA models (made using Blender3D) and markers for tracking.
The toolkit uses Adobe Flash to ‘host’ 3D models. Knowledge of ActionScript is required, so this has been another obstacle to overcome in this quite challenging project (along with 3D modelling, UV mapping, etc).
Screenshots of Success:
Texture Map (UV Map) of 3D Man model: Green = Arms, Red = Face and Legs, Blue = Torso, Yellow = Back of Head.
Successful export of 3D Model with Texture and lighting.
MY Model successfully recognised by FLARToolkit Marker (up all night look added for dramatic effect)…
Re-sizing of 3D Model by re-coding Flash ActionScript.
More to come soon…
