With the iOS app Blocker, users can quite literally block out photographic or filmic scenes: pull in what the camera sees, drop in and track 3D models and then play with light. This allows the user to set up the perfect photograph in advance of a shoot. The app tracks a scene as the camera moves, granting a true window into augmented reality (and guaranteeing that users can play around in a space to find the exact set-up they need). From the virtual sun to the 3D model size adjustment, it’s handy and it’s free—though there’s an in-app purchase for the full version that costs about $50.
