Iím quite interested in ARToolkit ( http://www.hitl.washington.edu/artoolkit/ ), a software library for building Augmented Reality (AR) applications. These are applications that involve the overlay of virtual imagery on the real world.
GameBlender and Virtools already have plugins to communicate with ARToolkit. Check http://www.ash.webstranka.info/?p=36 for an example movie.
My question is, how difficult will it be to combine ARToolkit with Unity? And could it be possible to make a connection without owning Unity pro? I am not a programmer by any means. I actually just started trying Unity to learn programming in a more playful way.
If anyone is interested in making a connection, ARToolkit plus ( http://studierstube.icg.tu-graz.ac.a...oolkitplus.php ) would be an even better base to build ontop.
