"The app is great. I’ve been really enjoying using it ... I’m currently using the app to preview assets so that I can work out framing issues and be confident of final compositions.”
VFX Supervisor, ILM

"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

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:

Add as many models as you want into your scene at once. Perfect for planning out shots with lots of elements that have to work together.

The Cinema Toolkit lets Set Designers, Art Directors and VFX Supervisors see their designs and characters through the camera setup of their choice. Simulate custom focal lengths, sensor crop ratios and frame rates to match your production’s equipment.

See live camera and model data as you move about your scene, including camera tilt, height, focal length, frame rate and aspect ratio.

Capture the scene for later review and reference using the scene record feature. A video is captured of your scene (with or without the app controls) and saved on your device for later use.
