Nearly a year after Katy Perry’s iconic virtual performance during the “American Idol” season 18 finale, disguise has publicly released its Extended Reality (xR) solution with its r18 software launch. The xR workflow utilized by XR Studios to power Perry’s performance has opened up a new world of opportunities in immersive real-time production in the past year, offering a safe and innovative alternative for live events to resume virtually.
disguise xR integrates with leading LED, real-time content and camera-tracking technologies to power immersive, high-quality virtual environments. This technology-agnostic feature gives users the freedom to choose the tools they want to create their best story with confidence. The r18 software also includes disguise’s most advanced integration of Unreal Engine, unlocking new features such as cluster rendering, inbuilt ACES colour management, augmented reality upgrades and more; to power the next generation of virtual production.
