Demo of alpha video using augmented reality.

Whilst scoping out some AR libraries for a potential project I was playing around with IN2AR. The office was buzzing with Vivid so it got me wondering if I could use alpha video on an Opera House marker to catch a personal peak of Vivid from my desk!

This was the result:

IN2AR is a great library. Pros were the markers could be any picture, provided there was a good amount of detail and contrast. Many other solutions require a boarder also, even though I had one on my marker it is not required. Plus cropping part of the target still let the marker work very well. Only downside I found was attempting to use alpha video on a mobile device was too resource hungry and barely worked. A basic 3D piece of content did work fine though.
