A life extension for the Augmented Reality Plugin for Autodesk Showcase

“It is our imagination that transforms itself into reality, through our physical strength and endeavours.”

As of May 2013, The Augmented Reality Plugin for Autodesk Showcase has been retired.  I liked this plugin, and the post does state that it may be back at a later date. 

My fingers are crossed!


Shame on me for not updating this sooner, but things sometimes go into the archives, and collect dust.

******************
Tonight is a quick blog on a cool bit of news.

A few months ago, the Augmented Reality Plugin for Autodesk Showcase was released on Autodesk Labs.

This cool plugin for Showcase 2013 allowed a webcam to take an image, and project it into the Showcase scene.

 It was so cool, I bought a webcam just to be able to try it out!   And once I tried it, it was indeed very cool!

An example from my own Augmented Reality Session.  Pretty cool!  But I need to adjust the marker!

 But it had one big downside.  It would timeout on October 31st, 2012.  So it's tenure on Labs was seemingly going to be short.

But just today, I was asked about it again by a user.  I checked out the website, and BEHOLD!  The Augmented Reality plugin has gotten a life extension until January 31st, 2013.

So if you have a webcam and Autodesk Showcase 2013, download it and give it a try.  I don't think you'll be disappointed!  

Here's a video created by the Autodesk Labs Team.  Take a look and give it a download!  I think you're going to like what you see!
