Disguise and AI platform Cuebric have partnered to facilitate the faster creation of 2.5D virtual environments for LED stages.

Cuebric is now integrated with the Disguise platform, enabling creatives to use AI to create the shape and depth of 2.5D environments and then import them into Disguise. The result is a plug-and-play scene that can be executed on an LED stage in a matter of minutes.

“Real-time environments look spectacular on camera yet often require many hours of artistic and technical build,” says Addy Ghani, vice president of virtual production at Disguise. “Now there’s another option. Using generative AI, artists can build 2.5D plates, helping them go from concept to camera in minutes so they can tell unique stories in a way that works for them.”

To create 2.5D scenes, users can either add purely generative content or import images from elsewhere into the Cuebric platform. Cuebric then leverages AI rotoscoping and inpainting to segment the images into layers, transforming them from 2D to 2.5D based on the depth of objects. Once the Cuebric 2.5D scenes are imported into Disguise’s Designer software, each individual layer is depth-mapped with an auto-generated mesh. This means the individual plates are not limited to flat planes, as 3D shapes can be built into each of the plates.
