How to get started with camera calibration and augmentation
Download and install bazar. To calibrate the camera, run the example called “singlecalib”. You will have to present a flat, rigid and textured surface to the camera, as fronto-parallel as you can. Press space, then ‘Y’. Model learning will start. After, simply move your calibration object in the field of view. After some time, calibration computation starts.
After calibration, it is possible to augment the video stream with a very basic 3d object. Just run the “Augment3D” sample.
