Disguise Adds WFH Software Tools

Available now, r17.2 software introduces improvements to help users optimise their workflow at home.

A key new addition in r17.2 is the ability to run disguise’s Designer software in ‘Application Mode’. This enables Designer to run alongside multiple applications so users can perform tasks concurrently and effortlessly switch between its software and other apps. With Application Mode, users can pull content from the web into a project to work up concepts and share work-in-progress with others to communicate progress, gather feedback and collaborate better.

The software introduces support for HTC VIVE tracking accessories which make it possible to develop AR experiences at home without high-end tracking equipment. HTC VIVE accessories can be used to emulate camera or object tracking systems, so users can work up AR concepts from lockdown in their home office set-up.

r17.2 also allows users to create simple AR screens without the need for other tools so they can quickly test out ideas for AR experiences. By making it possible to render layers separately, users can also experience better overall project performance and a cleaner workflow.

With the new ‘Spherical Camera’ in r17.2, users can render 360 video content, in disguise. 360 video is also a valuable addition to users’ remote production toolkit, enabling them to test out arrangements, gather feedback and gain confidence before sharing content. Users with a VR headset can also enter the 360 experience or share with others to view using a VR player.
