Augmented Reality Tutorial No. 1: Marker-Based Primitive Object Augmentation

posted in: Augmented Reality | 32

Little by little we’re moving to

This is one of the first and easiest to accomplish Augmented Reality tutorials in just a few minutes. It will get more interesting, just visit

Download # Processing

Download # Newest nyar4psg 2.0.0 library for Augmented Reality (*.rar file)

Download # Hiro Marker (*.pdf file)

NOTE: Extract library and put nyar4psg folder to Processing libraries location as you can see in example here: “C:\Users\EdgarasArt\Documents\Processing\libraries”. If there are no libraries folder in Processing folder (in My Documents) – create it!

    Hi. I have downloaded Processing 3. When I run simpleLite the following error is shown in the console. “No library found for
    Libraries must be installed in a folder named ‘libraries’ inside the ‘sketchbook’ folder.”
    Any Solution

    I don’t have any camera on my computer, athough I would like to use the camera of my mobilephone, is it possible to make the program search for IP address of a camera?

      Hello. Nothing is impossible, however, I never tried to do this. Trust me, you don’t need this additional problem solving.

      If the library is in place, it’s really hard to say what else could be wrong here.

        • admin

          I can see that you’re not using Win OS so it’s hard for me to suggest something. Also, you’re using Processing 2.1.2 not 2.2.1 but I don’t think that this causes the problem.

    Can pls share d code?
    Actually i needed the code with which u had drawn the rectangle around the maker and how to return the coordinates of corners of the marker.

    • admin

      The code is build in the library itself, so just start the example code and look for the code fragment related to marker corner coordinates.

        Thank u very much ,just did not go through all d examples properly . Got it now .

    Can the marker be anything of my own choice ? Like any image I want ?

    • admin

      Yes, if you start follow from Augmented Reality Tutorial No. 14.

      • Yash

        but thats using unity3d and vuforia. So does nyar4psg has this limitation of predefined marker file ?

        • admin

          With nyar4psg you will be able to track only square black markers, of course, you can make it your own, but nothing alike images. Such marker-based tracking won’t be so robust.

    Hai Admin,,,

    Hi Admin.
    How do I change the marker?
    I created marker in ARtoolkit and hope to use it here.

    I got the same error “No library found for
    Libraries must be installed in a folder named ‘libraries’ inside the ‘sketchbook’ folder.

    and I found the solution here “”

    The Video and Sound libraries need to be downloaded through the Library Manager. Select “Add Library…” from the “Import Library…” submenu within the Sketch menu.
