UK - disguise’s latest software release, 17.4 combined with its new RenderStream software, rx and vx hardware bundle creates the complete solution for hosting real-time content from render engines, Unreal Engine and Notch.
disguise has recognised the demand for immersive real-time production and their latest release, 17.4, showcases features that were identified through the Netflix's virtual production initiative NLAB, with partners Lux Machina and Fuse Technical Group. The knowledge gained from experimentation and feature testing has optimised their already market-leading workflow for virtual production on set.
RenderStream is a proprietary video-over-IP protocol that synchronises and transfers content between render engines and final composition machines. It provides low latency, uncompressed video transfer and sends control metadata to sync camera tracking between disguise and the render engine in addition to providing parameter control from disguise to the render engine. This new approach to the technology stack allows disguise to move towards a scale-out rendering approach.
With r17.4, RenderStream users can access advanced DX12 features in Unreal such as Ray Tracing to create best-in-class photorealistic content capturing accurate reflections, refractions and shadows.
In collaboration with Adrián Pueyo, virtual production supervisor Orca VFX, disguise optimised the workflow further. “The disguise approach to virtual production has been a game-changer for us, in terms of pipeline, scalability, colour management and performance. While Unreal Engine focuses on rendering its real-time astonishing scenes, the disguise system does what it does better than anything else. This means we have a pipeline with enormous flexibility, where clients can bring their own scenes with literally no restrictions from our side.”
“rx, RenderStream and new vx products are key beachhead technologies for addressing the need to scale out rather than scale up,” says disguise CTO Ed Plowman.
“disguise is excited to add the vx, rx, and RenderStream bundle to our product offerings as the demand for xR and virtual production increases daily across media and entertainment, corporate and educational markets,” says disguise CEO Fernando Kufer. “With the rx and RenderStream bundle, customers will have the one-stop solutions they need to take advantage of new opportunities in this fast-evolving arena.”
