disguise Upgrades Cloud Platform To Include Mapping Matter

Users Can Now Build 3D Simulations, Create Effects and Preview Projection-Mapped Visuals From Their Web Browser

June 13, 2023

Today, disguise announces the integration of Mapping Matter into disguise Cloud, a significant update that will enable users across large-scale installations, location-based experiences (LBX), brand experiences, live events and more to plan and previsualize projection mapping projects — all in one place.


With the integration of Mapping Matter, disguise Cloud will be the only platform that offers interactive previsualization and projection mapping tools directly in one web browser-based platform. Using the same tools leveraged by Cirque du Soleil, Moment Factory and Creative Technology for nearly a decade, live events teams will be able to take charge of their video projection specs, luminance levels and pixel densities while easily iterating on complex projector placements in the cloud.


All projection-mapped visuals can then be previewed within a 3D digital twin of the AV installation environment. This enables teams to effortlessly plan and manage entire projects in one platform ahead of the event date, saving time and resources so they can focus on creativity.

“It can be challenging for designers to accurately plan projector placement and coverage for large-scale or complex projects. On top of that, designers need to be able to share accurate representations and evaluate their projects with clients and their teams. Our platform makes the process fast, creative, easy, and highly collaborative,” says disguise Head of Cloud Solutions, Niall Thompson.



“A total breeze to use, Mapping Matter gives me a reliable evaluation of luminance and pix density, plus the visuals needed for focused discussion with stakeholders,” says Cirque du Soleil Technical Director, Christopher V. Whelan.

Additional benefits for users include:



  • Stress-Free Collaboration Collaborate with other designers to create and preview live event visuals from a web browser, so you can plan ahead before the day of the show. All team files and assets will be available in one place.


  • Faster Turnarounds Validate projection brightness and studies in seconds, or use the endless undo option to go back to an idea in just a few clicks.


  • Happier Clients Quickly generate client documentation or share all your team files and assets with stakeholders, whenever they need them.


  • More Creative Freedom A vast pattern and effects library complete with meshes and textures is available to help you build advanced 3D simulations of your live events.
