EligoVision Toolbox (EV Toolbox) — is a new user-friendly programming product that will allow companies designers and programmers to create, develop and commercialize their own augmented reality projects on «living 3D markers» by EligoVision.
EV Toolbox was first officially demonstrated at Autodesk University Russia event in Moscow, in the beginning of October 2012.
During AU Russia the trial version of EV Toolbox beta was available for testing at EligoVision stand. We also ran a live demo master-class on how to use this product.
Currently we are working on the beta-version. We are about to release it in November 2012.

How will EV Toolbox beta look like?
EV Toolbox interface and functionality were developed taking into account wants and needs of the prospective users: designers and programmers. In its design we used our team experience and expertise in creating all types of AR projects.
This is how EV Toolbox beta working interface will look like.
NOTE Our new toolbox will support cross-platform file format .fbx, which allows a designer or developer to work with any 3D graphic program packages and create AR project in EV Toolbox freely and easily.
EV Toolbox also enables to integrate text, audio and video files into any AR project.
How to create an AR project in EV Toolbox
During the master class «Autodesk + EligoVisionToolbox = Augmented Reality» at Autodesk University Russia our team demonstrated how to create an augmented reality project in real-time with the help of EV Toolbox.
A special 3D model of a hut on fowl's legs was developed with 3Ds Max for this master-class — Izba 2.0.
In the first stage the 3D model was exported into EV Toolbox. Then the animation playback was added to it.
Within the 3rd stage a new feature was integrated into the project — the ability to take off the roof of the hut. In the last stage video, audio and text were added to the AR project.
You can watch the video of this master-class below:

You can try this project right now on your own PC (please ensure a webcam is connected to your computer).
