Blocker by AfterNow: an Apple ARKit application for film makers, just published on the app store. Blocker is a creative tool for filmmakers. It combines a director's viewfinder with the ability to place virtual characters so that you can quickly compose shots. It can be used for blocking or for storyboarding.
AR-Pres enables anyone to create beautiful augmented reality presentations in the Hololens. It's perfect for sales demos, memorable marketing engagements and hands on tutorials.
