    Hey there,
    I just came across your youtube video and your AR businesscards. I got a question on that one, since I as a student work on an AR project. How did you guys get the transparent background in your inserted video? I tried to do it using after effects and chroma keying, but this just left me with a black background.
    I would appreciate it if ya could help me with this. Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Best regards,

  2. Iam interested in AR but Iam more of a musician and an artist.
    It will mean a world to me if you can design an AR Business card for me for my use.Iam a singer song writer composer producer of songs using sanskrit lyrics ancient over 5000yrs old mantras and mix them with real sounds of Rivers like ganga and real sounds of birds to make it real for listeners.I then used this to make Prana Nidra silent yoga meditation for busy professionals and creative people whose mind is restless and unable to sleep as it is thinking of creativity all the time.Prana Nidra meditation is a technique where I make the listeners to meditate without their knowlege and give them that peace and make their mind not to think of anything and many even sleep.Its for 3mnts and 7 mnts one can do any where any time.

    I can email you my business card and request you if you can make one AR Business card for me.I will be your marketing guy ensuring the world knows about you.
