ICARUS is a suite of software packages designed to enable the calibration of image and video sequences, and the reconstruction of geometric models of real scenes from those sequences. It is available on Windows, Linux, Mac and SGI platforms, and comes in two versions. The Personal edition is currently free for non-commercial use. For commercial use, please purchase a license for the Professional Edition.
The current version of the software comes as three separate components:
On Windows platforms, ICARUS supports digital video (DV) format using AVI files; AVI files encoded with codecs supported by DirectShow (DirectX 8.1); and QuickTime files (if QuickTime player is installed). On Mac platforms ICARUS support QuickTime movie files. All platforms also support many standard image formats (TIFF, BMP, GIF, JPEG etc...) as well as the Cineon image format (FIDO and DPX files).
The Personal edition of ICARUS is available for download and is free for non-commercial use. A mailing list has also been set up, so if you would like to be informed of updates and bug-fixes, please join. You must subscribe to the mailing list to post questions, but the list can also be read without a subscription.
ICARUS is capable of tracking film-resolution sequences, although this feature has not been properly tested because we do not have any real footage to test with. If you are interested in tracking high resolution sequences, and would like to donate some real footage to us so we can do some testing, please mail us
If you have any suggestions for improvements, or find any bugs, please send us an email
ICARUS is powered by OpenGL. It also uses the GPC General Polygon Clipper Library developed by Alan Murta.
