Dig-ID, the computer program, is a scriptable tool that facilitates the creation of interactive 2D presentations with non-interactive 3D backgrounds. It offers high performance 3D graphics through the use of OpenGL, plays 3DS animations with textures, cameras and lighting, AVI videos on arbitrary textures and MP3 and WAV sounds through the use of BASS.

Dig-ID, the team, was a group of 5 “Medieninformatik” students who teamed up for this 1 year project at the Hochschule Harz in Germany.

The dig-ID software and user manual are available on the project’s webpage. Please excuse that the texts are in German language only, but this was a course work requirement. Feel free to ask if you have any questions. There was also a related paper at the SCS Simulation and Visualization 2003 conference in Magdeburg, Germany.
