disguise has made 181 bug fixes and 121 improvements with the release of r16
disguise has announced the release of r16. Enhancements include a complete design overhaul to improve the execution and usability of the Cue List, more flexibility to work with external control systems and a multi-edit function to streamline workflows when working with groups of objects. The manufacturer reports that a total of 181 bug fixes and 121 improvements have been made.
Further updates include higher-quality content playback, including end-to-end 10-bit colour depth support for disguise’s latest flagship servers, the vx 4 and gx 2c, as well as support for wider colour gamuts such as Rec. 2020, plus a full HDR pipeline. The release also includes long-requested support for image sequence playback allowing users to play TIFF, TGA and DPX file sequences in either 8 or 10 bit. Support for the new NotchLC codec has also been added, which reportedly achieves visually lossless quality without sacrificing performance.
Projection workflows have also been overhauled. A single calibration workflow has been introduced, along with Mapping Matter integration which allows users to set up projectors in Mapping Matter and quickly import them into disguise, including projector data such as position, name, resolution and lumens.
r16 also debuts new workflows for Augmented Reality including support for a variety of camera tracking systems, which can be fed into the 3D stage as tracked objects and attached to virtual cameras. The manufacturer reports that this is the first step on the road to releasing the full xR feature set, which will come in future releases.
