What's new?

Your workflow streamlined for enhanced efficiency.

Say hello to r17.3, the latest software from disguise. r17.3 adds powerful new features to your toolkit including Indirections, Multi-layer Editing, Object Assignment Hotkeys and Crossfade Loop Section Play Mode, all purpose-built for slick and efficient production.
disguise software simplified and optimised, with r17.3 you can work fast, respond to changes on the fly and work your way to deliver your next visual experience with total confidence.

Indirections gives you new flexibility to change keyframe objects on the fly such as mappings, video clips, textures and configurations. You can also choose how to control your indirection for example via OSC, UDP and DMX or a dedicated API.

Multi-layer Editing

Multi-layer editing will allow you to save time sequencing and simplify your workflow by assigning common parameter values across multiple layers. As you action feedback on the fly, you will also ensure precious time onsite is spent on capturing performances and not making technical changes which may slow down production.

Object Assignment Hotkeys

Object assignment hotkeys allow you to work your way, keep up momentum and do your best work to deliver the production. Tailor your workflow for speed and ease of use by assigning your own custom keyboard shortcuts for supported objects. You can also quickly iterate through layers.

Points Manager Gif Web

Reference Point Manager

You can control the whole picture with Reference Point Manager. It enables you to stay on top of your projectors by being able to view and manage all calibration points in your project in a single place.

Crossfaded Loop Section Mode

Get it right at the source with Crossfaded Loop Section Mode. With this feature, you can decide how media will loop in the moment, meaning less time spent later in post or enabling shooting houses delivering the plate directly. Crossfaded Loop Section Mode enables quick reactions by giving you the flexibility to not have to play through the entire clips, makes this quick and easy to get the right point.
