A next level AR workflow

Augmented Reality experiences are a great way for brands and artists to connect with their audiences at home and in live contexts. With r17.1 we’ve made it easier than ever to imagine, create and deliver AR. Broadcast a digital classroom for immersive remote learning or enhance the studio space for live-streamed events - all from the comfort of your living room.

R17.1 AR Body Image Disguise

AR workflow overview

R17.1 Transitions Body Image Disguise

Transition to anywhere

Unlock new visual possibilities and save time with sequenced transitions. Much like a universal crossfade, you can now freely and creatively apply transitions between different content sections on your timeline.

Create your own test patterns

You can now generate test patterns for the screens in the software. Save time and streamline your workflow by reducing the need to create test patterns in other tools.

Also in r17.1

With 29 new features, 23 improvements and 74 bug fixes, r17.1 also introduces significant upgrades to integrated disguise workflows, including: 


  • As part of our ongoing commitment to improving the EVO workflow, you can now stream DMX universe one from Designer.


  • Notch parameters are now refreshed instantly when live-editing from Notch builder.

  • Notch render intervals can now be set through the UI.

  • It’s now simpler to coordinate two objects in the software as Notch content layers can now be configured as 3D content. This allows for denial of perspective effects onto arbitrary surfaces, using an exposable camera in Notch and a perspective mapping.


  • It’s now faster than ever to calibrate projectors.
