Marker Making Process… by Dk

When we first started to create the markers, the site that Nitin found was really great help although markers that I created didn’t work well for first couple tries. Custom marker creation is actually a lot easier if you know what you are doing, and the site below will help you how to create the markers for Augmented reality.

After carefully went through process of creating markers, I created png file of the marker which is 256×256 in size then took those png files ARToolkit Marker Generator to create the pattern file so the webcam can be able to read the marker.

At first, I used symmetrical shapes which the webcam could not read the marker well, then I created none symmetrical shaped marker but little bit complicated in some places which also confused the webcam. It read the marker but created issues of tilting and so on. The markers needed to be simplified and needed more distinctive shape. So we decided to use the alphabet to create simple markers.

Overall the process of making markers are really easy but you need to know what to do in order to make working marker without problems.
