The industry-leading augmented reality app for film and video production, now with a host of revolutionary new features!

Made for independent studios and used by world-renowned production companies, PreviewAR is the easiest way to view your 3D characters and objects in the real world using technology you already have.

PreviewAR supports most major 3D file formats, including OBJ, USD, DAE, FBX. Download now and see your animated, textured characters and objects live on set.

"PreviewAR provides a wonderful shortcut to viewing a 3D asset and sharing that experience with others in the room, without need for a headset. Its application on a sound stage is quite amazing - it's allowed us to quickly see a potential set build without harming the budget.”
Art Director, Painting Practice

PreviewAR uses real-world scale to show your models as accurately as possible. Along with people + environment occlusion, your models will be deeply incorporated into the environment, and the full-screen immersive AR display means the scene can come alive right before your eyes.

The on-screen controls let you adjust all aspects of the scene without getting in the way. Change lighting angles, scale models and adjust positions using the Adjustment Wheel for ultimate accuracy. The interface can also be totally hidden for a completely immersive AR experience - just tap on any empty area of the scene.

There are no external servers or processing involved with PreviewAR - every model you import into the app stays on your device and isn't uploaded or downloaded anywhere else. Perfect for NDA-restricted or sensitive assets that can't be uploaded to other cloud-based products.

PreviewAR offers a Pro subscription level for access to more advanced features tailor-made for those on-set, including:
- Camera & Lens Simulation: Choose from over 200 cinema camera formats and frame rates to simulate, or add your own custom setup!
- Collaborative Sessions: Multiple devices can now share an AR scene in real-time. Give your Directors, DOPs, Clients devices to view and frame the scene through while you make edits on your device. Updated instantly with up to 4 devices (no internet connection required).
- Live Data: See live camera and model data as you move about your scene, including camera tilt, height, focal length, frame rate and aspect ratio.
- Scene Recording & Snapshots: Capture the scene for later review and reference using the scene record or snapshot features.
- and many more!
