    Hello,

    1. No, you have to use different markers.

    2. You can set everything at startup when the "Show PIN" checkbox is checked.
    http://ar.uplugins.com/init/

    My recommendation is to use only 4:3 resolutions like 800x600 or 960x720

    3. Please find all the required tools for creating NFT markers (genTexData.exe is located in the /bin folder)
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=1bY...Zl9eJ9BtPGQGqM

    - Generate the NFT files using the following guide:
    http://web.archive.org/web/201712261...r_nft_training

    To use the new NFT:

    - Put the generated files to Content/ARToolkit/DataNFT
    - Add the name of your marker to the MarkersNFT enumeration in the unreal editor.
    - Use this new name for the GetMarkersNFT node.

    I have two questions:
    1. can I have 2 of the same type of markers on screen at once? For Examples 2 Hiros on screen.
    2. How do I set the Camera resolution to 1080p or 720p 30fps and have that setting save each time I play?

    I am also really struggling to figure out how to get NFT markers working?
    I've read through the doc, but it's not very helpful in explaining how to actually test the Data set?

    There are 3 nodes that can help. All the 3 has an example in the demo project, you can play with settings to find the best for your environment.

    http://ar.uplugins.com/set-threshold-mode/
    http://ar.uplugins.com/set-threshold/

    One more thing I see on your video is the small relative size of the marker. Try to go closer so the marker will be bigger.

    I hope it helps.




    Thank you very much for your reply Adam.

    I've been doing some tests with these 3 nodes you recommended. What I could find out was that the set threshold mode and set threshold nodes have to do only with marker recognition by the camera in terms of brights and darks for easy recognition (good to have that, very useful) and the set filter node has more to do with the jittering or vibration at positioning the 3D models in relation to the marker position, but I can't seem to soften the vibration in any way. Is there any other solution I can try to improve the vibration problem? By the way, I cannot increase the size of the marker due to the nature of the project, it needs to be in a certain place and not larger than a certain size to work for the purpose I am pursuing. Do you have any other suggestions?

    Thank you very much.

    Hello Adam,

    I have a problem with calibrating my android tablet camera. I have installed an app on my tablett, and another one on my PC. So I can use my tablet as a webcam. So far so good.

    I then use camera_calib.exe file for generating camera_para.dat file like it is described here:
    http://www.daslhub.org/unlv/wiki/dok...nxt_ar_toolkit

    I did it twice, but I am not happy with the result. All tracked marker (I took some squared control planes for checking) are 2D shifted against live camera stream.
    Is there a way to edit camera_para.dat by hand ? Just to set a different "Point of Interest" or similar?
    Calculated FOV seems to be ok, marker lines are parallel by any viewing angle but still not matching. (its 2D shifted)

    There are other tools for generating camera_para.dat like described here:
    http://www.hitl.washington.edu/artoo...on.htm#onestep

    Is this older or newer? Or even more exact? I do not have any calib_dist.exe or calib_cparam.exe. Where can I download?

    Do I even have to change some C++ lines or xml or whatever.
    Of course, I can change camera yaw and pitch a little to compensate this shift in bluprint, but I would like to do a more proper calibration.

    Thanks, Peter

    How can you prevent the 3D model from shaking so much?

    I have tried enabling and disabling the set filter node, playing with Sample Rate and Cut Off Freq values with no significant change.

    What's the best way to get rid of the jittering? What else could I try to fix it?

    Thank you.

    Here's a link to showing the issue:

    Thanks I manage to get this working - One last question - I managed to change the model from the bike to a simple mesh when the image is detected - Is there away to keep the model (mesh) there on the image..... even after i move away from the image instead of it disappearing ?

    Hi,

    I think you have to disable datasmith before publishing to iPad.

The moment I enable DataSmith plugin - UE4 is ask to restart once I restart it and push the app to the IPAD - the app always crashes. Something about Plugin blastplugin failed to load because module BlastCore could not be found? Thats the message on the IPAD.

    Any ideas?

    Hello, I would like to ask you about this AR plug-in. Can I use an Android phone to scan the identification code to display the video for playback? If so, how do I do it? I tried to modify the blueprint, but it did n’t help. Thank you

    I can't find any implementation in the SampleProject. I only found the Marker Enumeration with 4 entrys.

    Am I correct, it is implemented in C++ and I can access by Get Marker MATRIX ?
    Yes, exactly. Just change the GetMarker node to GetMarkerMATRIX in the sample project.

    More info about this node:

    Bitmaps can be only used as NFT markers like the pinball NFT example in the demo.

    The NFT images are in /Content/DataNFT
    They are special files, and not recognizable by the unreal content manager, that is why you cannot see them inside the editor.


    You can read more about the generation of the NFT files on this link:
    https://github.com/artoolkitx/artool...ng-NFT-markers


    You can find the ARToolkit 5.0 NFT training utility on this link:
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bY2...9BtPGQGqM/view


    Once you have the generated NFT files copy them to the Content/DataNFT folder, and add to the enumeration.

    If you need around 50 , I would suggest to use the 2D barcode markers, they are already implemented. You can download and print them from here: http://ar.uplugins.com/2d-barcode-markers/
    If you want image markers I would not recommend to use more than 20 in the same app, as they take some time to load.
