artoolkit no webcam showing
1 Attachment(s)
Hi, all

I tried to get artookit example running on my PC. I tried to run the artoolkit_simple that came with the vizard. Codes are shown below.

import viz

#Add ARToolkit extension
ar = viz.add('artoolkit.dle')

#Create camera using first available webcam
camera = ar.addWebCamera()

#Create marker from pattern file
marker = camera.addMarker('ar/patt.worldviz',width=1000)

#Add logo model
logo = viz.add('logo.ive')

#Link logo model to marker sensor,logo)

However the screen shows nothing only black/white dots (see screenshot). It looks like the webcam is not turned on. However I checked my webcam setting. My webcam shows fine in programs such as skype.

The message window shows no error but the following

************************************************** ****************************

artoolkit.dle ARToolkit Extension
VideoCamera.dle Video Camera Extension
** WARNING: Video camera does not support capturing at 640 x 480, using default size (720 x 576)
** NOTIFY: Connected to 'AVerMedia 7231 Analog Capture' (720 x 576 , 25.00 fps)

Any help or hint is helpful.

I tried the following to test the webcam

import viz

#Create Video Camera extension
video = viz.add('VideoCamera.dle')

#Connect to next available generic video capture device
cam = video.addWebcam(size=video.WEBCAM_MAX_SIZE, id=1)

#Create quad to display video capture data
quad = viz.addTexQuad(pos=(0,1.8,2),texture=cam)
I noticed that I have to use "id=1" to obtain webcam image. There are two imaging devices on my computer, one is scanner, the other is webcam.

Now my question is
(1) Do I need a full license to run artookit?
(2) How do select the other imaging device in the artoolkit example I gave in the above example. I tried to use "id=1". But the function ar.addWebCamera() does not take the attribute id.

Any hint is appreciated.

1. The ARToolKit plug-in will run in all Vizard editions.

2. Use the ar.addCamera command and specify the camera texture:

cam = video.addWebcam(id=1)
camera = ar.addCamera(texture=cam)
