Installing SingleMarkerDetector.plugin

sphynxi's picture

Hi and sorry guys

Now it comes a totally noob.... ;-)

i read the forum through and through, but now, after over an hour, im frustrated.

i got snow leopard and Quartz 4.0

i downloaded SingleMarkerDetector.zip from this site (found in this forum)

https://sites.google.com/site/pgtwitter/qc_patch

but its a zip file. i tried to copy it to the 2 folders in my graphics folder. (patches and plug-ins). it didnt work.

in all the tutorials they have just one file (.plugin) SingleMarkerDetector.plugin and copy this over. but there is no file like this in the zip file. even in an other SingleMarkerDetector.zip file was no such file. (also found in this forum). i opened the SingleMarkerDetector.xcodeproj with Xcode and saw an folder called "products". in this folder is an RED marked SingleMarkerDetector.plugin file. if i check it in the finder, there is no such file...

im stuck....can anyone help me? i didnt find something with google. its linking me always back to this forum.

i really need the .plugin file :-/

Re: Installing SingleMarkerDetector.plugin

The author of SingleMarkerDetector is just providing the source code, not a compiled version. You need to build it yourself.

Open the .xcodeproj, go to the Build menu, and click Build. When that's finished, you'll find a build folder inside the project folder, and Debug inside that. Copy the .plugin file to <your home folder>/Library/Graphics/Quartz Composer Plug-Ins.

Re: Installing SingleMarkerDetector.plugin

Check out this thread from a few days ago. I posted a zip file containing the built plugins.

You need the matrix plugin as well as the single marker detector in order to build an Ar patch. I have posted a comp am few times on here, don't remember the original thread but someone has made a video tutorial. I think it's called augmented reality I'm five mins. Run a YouTube or vimeo search for those terms and you can see how patch the plugins together

Hi there,

unfortunately I've LION (terrible experience for who works with apple developer in general) and I can't install no more the Single Marker Detector.plugin I've try under both the two library and into both the folders patches and plugin but wont appear into the QC Patch library :-(

I think the default settings for that one are a 32 bit build. You'll likely have to go into build settings and select 64/32 bit build mode.

Re: Installing SingleMarkerDetector.plugin

I just checked the ADC, and I can't find that Xcode project, even though a few other plugin projects are available. It was included in the 10.5 Developer Tools.

On the case of the v002 plugin, I believe that only works in 32-bit mode because of the fact that Quicktime is only 32-bit... and "Quicktime X" is the 64 bit thing, that doesn't really have a lot to do with "old" Quicktime.

chiara - You are missing, or have not set, the appropriate SDK in your xCode projects.

Man, no. Movie Player is totally 32 and 64 bit complaint, and has been for some time.

Ensure you have the latest version please?
