Thanks for your response. We are using standard USB cameras, like the ELP ELP-USBFHD06 or other camera offerings. Depending on the lenses used, these will have very different camera intrinsics properties (ie. focal length, focal centre and Field of View). How is this compensated for within MAXST? Most AR SDK libraries have a means to calibrate the visual camera sensor to accomadate this. Does MASXT have a way of handling this?
