New Features
  • DSOF-21736 Live Action Volume

Live Action Volume allows users to define a region of an XR stage which contains ‘live action’, e.g. performers and props. All areas outside this volume will be covered with virtual set extension, rather than exposing the filmed LED screens.

The reasons for doing this include:
1. To mask on-stage objects outside the performance region (e.g. cameras, lights).
2. To make more of the frame be taken up by virtual content, which seamlessly blends with the filmed screens within the live action volume.


To add a live action volume to an XR setup:

  1. Create an object (e.g prop, screen etc.)
  2. Change the object’s render layer to ‘Live action volume’
  3. Set the object’s mesh and more it to the desired location on the stage to contain all the live action
  4. Multiple live action objects can be created to cover disconnected regions of live action

Usage notes:

Live action volume objects (along with set extension mask and addition objects) apply globally. All objects in the stage in these layers will automatically modify the set extensions of all MR sets, without needing to be added to the MR set ‘On-stage’ object list.

On-Stage objects positioned behind or in front of a Live Action Volume won’t make them covered by the Set Extension unless they are on the side of it as we only render the Live Action Volume in 2D.


  • DSOF-3606 Ability to set non-SMPTE timecode for frame accurate sequencing in any frame rate

We have created an option to set Custom Timeline FPS to support frame accurate sequencing. This is made available in the Timecode Collapsible widget found in the right-click menu for Transport.

  • DSOF-11343 Debug log window resize

It is now possible to resize the debug log window, which makes it much more user friendly.


  • DSOF-12624 Notify user of new or mismatching VFC firmware

If the VFC firmware is found to be old or mismatching, this is now flagged with a notification stating “Found old VFC firmware”.

  • DSOF-15168 All objects should be able to be used as set extension masks/additions without adding as an on-stage object in the MR set

In order to add set extension masks or set extension additions, it is no longer necessary for these to be part of the MR set. All objects in the relevant layers can work as masks or additions, without  needing to be in the MR set.

  • DSOF-19189 Show film strip of a clip in the key frame editor

The film strip for a video is now available in the key frame editor. This is useful to get an overview of the content without having to play it through. This feature is disabled by default, and can be enabled by unchecking the “Disable key frame editor film strip” option in the Project Settings.


Without the film strip


With the film strip

  • DSOF-20495 Add mellanox dumps to system diagnostics

Mellanox crash dumps are now included in the system diagnostics.


  • DSOF-20669 Remove blue flash watermark from feed view

The Feed view has been modified so that both the Feed Rectangle and Feed Output behaviour is consistent. In previous releases, the Feed Rectangle would fade to blue while the Feed Output would not fade 

For a non-server Designer machine, the Feed rectangle will fade to blue (on gold release) or purple (on a beta release) every 10 mins. The Feed Output will exhibit the same behaviour.

For any disguise server, the Feed Rectangle shall never fade on a gold release but fade to purple on a beta release. The Feed Output will exhibit the same behaviour.

  • DSOF-20844 Indicate which machine is the local machine in d3manager

In d3manager, the local machine is now highlighted in bold. As a user, this is useful when accessing multiple machines via a KVM and needing to know which of the machines listed is the one you are logged onto.

  • DSOF-21987 Cloud login improvements

The disguise cloud login functionality within Designer which was released in r22.2 has undergone several quality improvements.

  • DSOF-21196 Add ability to customise the API endpoint

The HTTP API port settings are now configurable via d3manager under Machine Settings -> Set API Ports. 

Care should be taken when changing settings in this dialog to restart the project or the machine, depending on what settings have been changed, as per the instructions in the setting dialog.

  • DSOF-21322 MTC layer does not support 29.97 drop frame

The MTC layer for outputting MIDI timecode now supports 29.97 Drop Frame (DF) timecode.

  • DSOF-21618 ‘Cue table exported’ pop-up added

When exporting a cue table, a pop up message now indicates that the cue table has been exported, consistent with the behaviour of other export features.

  • DSOF-21623 Remove ‘HDMI 3840X2160 10bit’ warning

A confusing warning message in Notifications has been removed.

  • DSOF-21633 Allow ALT+G to toggle GUI on all machine roles

The key combination ALT+G now toggles GUI rendering on or off on all machine roles. When ALT+G has been used, this is indicated with text on screen.

  • DSOF-21652 Don't render set extension mask when set extension alpha = 0

If the set extension alpha is set to zero, the software no longer renders the set extension mask as it is wasted effort. This performance improvement is applicable to VP setups where set extensions are not used.



  • DSOF-21738 Virtual object camera visibility setting

The “Virtual Object Alpha” setting in a Camera enables objects which define regions of interest to be displayed in the visualiser with a specified level of alpha. This is useful for objects such as set extension mask/addition layers, live action volumes or 2.5D layers. 

In previous releases, these objects were not rendered to the camera which could make them difficult to interact with. This setting is now enabled by default in the visualiser camera, but not in other cameras. 

The example screenshot below shows layers of a 2.5D scene which have been output to the StageRender layer being displayed as translucent layers with this setting enabled. The setting is found in the Camera object under Stage Render / Render Settings / Object Visibility.

  • DSOF-21785 Tidy up camera visibility settings

The settings of a Camera object have been tidied up in order to take up less space on the GUI, and makes it easier to manage.

  • DSOF-21971 RenderStream assets which crash on startup leave no information for fault finding

In previous releases, if a RenderStream asset crashed on startup (before even renderstream.dll loads), there was no way to report why it crashed. In r23, this is now captured, and log files are placed in the %LOCALAPPDATA%\d3\renderstream_workloads folder, with a subfolder for the asset name, then “friendly” workload name. 

Each instance is stored into an instance_n.txt file, where n is the instance number within the workload. The log viewer in Designer is able to view the file via the Designer Logs share on the render machine, so access to all logs from assets which failed to start will be available too.

  • DSOF-21984 RenderStream host memory applications need to be able to specify pixel format

This improvement is relevant for developers of RenderStream plugins. The pixel format was limited to BGRA8 pixel formats only on all versions of RenderStream up to 1.30. 

From RenderStream 1.31, the engine can now specify the memory it provides in the same way dx apps can use a reasonable selection of pixel formats in the textures they provide to the API.

  • DSOF-22039 Add the ability to render 3D content from spherical mappings

Spherical mapping supports a new property called Content Mode which is set to 2D or 3D. When set to 2D, the behaviour is the same as previous releases. When set to 3D, RenderStream and other 3D layer types (StageRender, Notch and Renderstream) will render 6 views of their world in order to build the 6 tiles of a cube in order to generate 360 degree content.

The cube mapping viewpoints will be automatically created for render engines, resulting in 6 workloads - one for each side of the cube - and the resulting content is mapped for 360 degree coverage, i.e. a 360 degree arc around the spherical focal point. This achieves the same observed behaviour as equirectangular content which spherical mappings normally use.



  • DSOF-22454 Run -NoVerifyGc Command on RenderStream Launch

RenderStream layers for Unreal Engine now pass through the -NoVerifyGc option by default for Unreal Engine RenderStream workloads. This significantly speeds up the launching of these workloads, without having to put this config in custom configuration.
