“For this shoot we used cinema prime lenses, which have customised optics to create shallow depth of fields, which looks amazing, but comes with a fixed focal length. To zoom in would mean changing to a different lens that needed a different calibration. To make this possible we worked closely with the disguise engineers to come up with a workflow that allowed lens swaps in between sessions, without the need to recalibrate,” he said.
While xR provided dynamics and immersive visuals to a conference that was unable to be held live this year, disguise xR holds promise well beyond virtual events, notes Purple’s Joost. “I believe we’re just getting started with the possibilities of disguise xR and can’t wait to develop this in future projects."
