Creating new ARTag marker set

Mar 2, 2009 at 5:42 AM
I want to create a new set of "toolbar" markers.

Is there any program or function to generate new marker sets for ARTag ? I'm aware of how the ARTag marker library works and the ARTag website says there's a generating function in the SDK rev2k but I've read the included docs and so far haven't found any clues yet. I guess I can copy-paste from the existing ground and toolbars to create new sets but still prefer a function to ease the process.

You can generate new set of markers by providing the ID of the marker you want to generate.

You can find the marker creation project under ...\artag_rev2k_sdk_windows_1209\Sample_projects\visual_studio_2005\artag_create_marker .

I run artag_create_marker and encountered the error "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more detail." I have checked the suggestion in Goblin XNA ( and downloaded the latest version of ARTag SDK, but error persists. I'm using VS 2008 professional edition. Can anyone please give me a hint how to solve this? Thanks!

You're welcome to use ARTag, but since we don't use ARTag anymore (it's still supported in Goblin XNA, but we don't use it for our research anymore), I won't be able to support for ARTag related issues.
