Dear Cedric,

Thank you for your question. If you want to show Augmented Reality in a web browser then BuildAR cannot currently do that. The best option would be to explore the Flash based FLARToolKit and FLARManager. See http://www.libspark.org/wiki/saqoosha/FLARToolKit/en

BuildAR is a stand alone authoring tool and viewing application, so can only be used to create AR scenes that can be viewed in the BuildAR viewer.

However, you can make BuildAR scenes available for download from the web, and if people have the BuildAR viewer they can see them on their computer. For example see the new BuildAR showcase of AR scenes: http://www.buildar.co.nz/buildar-showcase-2/

I hope this helps.

Mark

Hello,to summarize a few ideas which were mentioned on the old forum:

1. interaction:
It would be nice to have some sort of interaction, with which
someone would be able to activate embedded animations, movies,
sounds etc.

This could be achieved by stroking or pressing printed buttons
on the marker.


2.dynamic shadow
Would be great, which adds alot to a more realistic ar scene.
Baked ambient occlusion is nice for static models,but with
animation things start to look a little bit awkward.
Good thing is  "dynamic shadows" are supported by openscene
graph, so its possible, and i would love to see that
somehow.


3.alpha video
to achieve something like this
Robert Downey Jr. - Magazine AR


Thank you for taking the time

bye
Basti

Dear BuildAR Team,
some suggestions :
- to use a 3D scan as a tracker
- to think about use buildAR with a tablet and/or smartphone (export mode to another device than webcam/PC)
Thank you !
