Disguise Updates Its Designer Software

r17.1disguise released the r17.1 update for its software Monday. The update coincides with the launch of a six-month free license for its Designer software. r17.1 enhances the augmented reality workflow to help creative studios and production houses access the market opportunity presented by AR with the solution for delivering immersive visuals.

The workflow improvements in r17.1 enhance the ease of use for specialists delivering AR experiences with disguise, making it a more compelling option for use in projects for broadcast, esports and live contexts (i.e., corporate, education, virtual environments and concert touring). The disguise solution provides full 3D simulation and camera planning tools that allow workflow specialists to previsualize and imagine every pixel of an AR experience ahead of time, communicate and collaborate with other teams, and respond to feedback at every stage of production.

As well as making it easier to create and deliver AR, the new disguise release also introduces a range of improvements to the software user experience. With sequenced transitions, users can now transition to anywhere on a timeline using black and white content to define the transition. The feature opens new visual possibilities and saves time previously spent sequencing by simplifying the approach.

The new ability to generate test patterns within the software speeds up workflows by removing the need to leave the software to create test patterns in other tools. Test patterns in a previsualization give users confidence in their screen arrangement by letting them see precisely where the divides are between each screen. Test patterns are dynamically generated, meaning users can react quickly to adapt a previsualization to feedback and on-site changes.

The launch of r17.1 comes in a week when disguise has offered a free six-month subscription promotion for its Designer software. This offer has been made to support the disguise and live events community at a time when creatives and designers need to create and prepare for live projects later in the year.
