DART Tutorials

This page is home to tutorials on how to use DART. The tutorials start off slow with simple examples to help people get started. The tutorials get more challenging as we get into using DART's cue/action model, producing video actors, and writing your own behaviors for actors. Each tutorial includes an example Director file, useful screenshots, and descriptions of how the example works. Please follow this format as much as possible when creating your own tutorials.

DART basic tutorials

  1. Live camera as the background - Tutorial 1 - Camera Testing
  2. Simple objects and fiducial marker tracking (ARToolkit) - Tutorial 2 - Marker Tracking and 3D objects
  3. Simple User Interaction - Tutorial 3 - DART Cues and Actions

VRPN tutorials - This is still experimental and will break existing VRPN code that uses remote trackers, analogs and buttons

Please save your current copy of the DART-Lingo so that you can restore them. The tutorials below use a different version of DART-Lingo that has not been integrated into the full release.
