When i try second case with 3d dae model – I changed everything in source code as you are on video, but I still see cube model – not the nut (dea model).

    I’m currently following your AR tutorial on youtube and I am running into some problems. I am up to the point where I am testing my webcam after creating the createCam and createFLAR functions. every time that I try to run the program, it says that I have extra characters at the end of my program. I have tried to debug and make sure that I have all of my parantheses in the proper places and everything seems fine.

    So, I am trying to download the fully commented source code, but it says that the link does not exist. Could you please help me out?

      i’ve got the same problem..
      Description Resource Path Location Type
      1017: The definition of base class NyARBinRaster was not found. /AugReality/[source path] Actionscripts/org/libspark/flartoolkit/core/raster line 37 Flex Problem
      and many others with definition of base classes…

    i’ve figured out that the SVN is downloading newest version pf flartoolkit without all required files.. you can solve the problem by downloading old releases by tight click in folder TortoiseSVN> repo browser > and path:
    then version 0.9.0 and 0.9.1 contains required files
    i’ve got still 4 problems with functions:

    1008: return value for function ‘createBMP’ has no type declaration. /AugReality/src line 90 Flex Problem

    any ideas ?

    Most of the Links/websites are not working well now.
    Do you have an updated list of resources to create Augmented Reality?
