Latest Disguise Software Streamline Workflows

Disguise launches its r17.3 software with new features including Indirections, Multi-layer Editing, Object Assignment Hotkeys, Crossfaded Loop Section Mode as well as a number of bug fixes to further streamline the user experience.

Headlining the release is the introduction of ‘Indirections’, which gives greater flexibility to change keyframe objects. Users can now easily change keyframe objects such as mappings, video clips, textures and configurations remotely via third-party protocols such as OSC, DMX or a dedicated API. This functionality is said to unlock new workflows for esports, making changes to the visual experience in response to gameplay, for example, to spotlight who is leading the match at any given time.

The new ‘Multi-layer Editing’ feature in disguise, allows users to edit multiple layers quickly, saving time sequencing and simplifying workflows by assigning common parameter values across layers. The ability to select multiple layers and keyframe values to layers simultaneously allows users to respond to feedback fast, and ensure time on-site is maximised.

According to Wyatt Bartel, Senior Technical Director at Lux Machina who had early access to the software: “There’s never a time I'm not trying to select two things at the same time. The new release should help end on-site frustration and build better relationships with directors. It also has real-world impact when time is of the essence.”

Also included in r17.3 is ‘Object Assignment Hotkeys’ allowing users to tailor their workflows by assigning your own custom keyboard shortcuts for supported objects. Quickly iterate through layers to make creative changes, and keep up the momentum to deliver the production.

The addition of a ‘Reference Point Manager’ allows users to stay on top of multiple projectors by viewing projector calibration points in a list format which makes muting, unmuting and locking points easier to accomplish.

r17.3 also offers time savings in post-production with the new ‘Crossfaded Loop Section Mode’. Decide how media will loop in the moment, crossfade from the end of the section to the beginning, or jump to the right place in the track for a take without having to play through the entire clip.

In addition to the above, r17.3 also has: NDI SDK updated to version 4.5; the ability to point manager at a template project; Alt-drag in the feed mapping editor; Clicking a tag or note now jumps the exact frame where the tag is placed; and you can now pause the playback of a Notch block.
