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!
