Hi, Is anyone using the "Spectec SD CAM" with the ARToolKitPlus? We recently bought one and it came with the SDK. Since this SDK has no documentation at all and i'm not a C++ guy i'm having some problems to integrate it with artoolkiplus. The SDK I received together with the camera is the "ViCAM-III SDCam / Pocket PC 2002 Development Kit". The only example it brings is a program to show the captured image on screen. I can't figure out in wich array the image is stored in the program, all my tries to save the captured image to a file wore unsuccessfull. Anyone has done this before and can give me some hints? Regards, Bruno.
