    Hey, (not sure I'm in the right sub, but I felt that was the closer).

    I'm looking to make an AR app on mobile (iOS presumably). I already have some experience with Vuforia but this one does not offer the feature I'm looking for AFAIK

    I need to be able to feed a static image to the library (like a photo taken before) instead of using the live feed of the camera (or webcam). Do you know if it's possible ? If so, with which library ? I heard about ARToolKit, is it worth trying with this one ?

    Thanks !

    Hi. Yes, you can feed an individual image into ARToolkit. I've done a project with ARToolkit and quite a few with Vuforia. unfortunately the ease of use means that some areas are very dumbed down.

    You also have the option of OpenCV as well...but you may as well go ARToolkit.

    Cheers
