Fuzzy Door Tech Debuts ViewScreen Scout, Real-Time Scouting App

New single-user version of industry-grade scouting app designed for film and television production, available as public Beta

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Fuzzy Door Tech, the innovative technology division of Seth MacFarlane’s acclaimed production company Fuzzy Door, today announced a public Beta of ViewScreenTM Scout, its real-time scouting app for the iPhone.

In conjunction with today’s announcement, the company is rebranding its production-grade scouting app, previously known as ViewScreen Scout, to ViewScreen Scout Pro.

ViewScreen Scout provides individual users with the powerful production visualization tools needed to scout a scene or shot – from blocking and adjusting lighting and lenses to animating characters – before filming begins. The Beta app is a single-user version of ViewScreen Scout Pro and is available to try now. You can request access to the Beta from viewscreen.com (here).

“ViewScreen Scout is an innovative scouting tool that puts the power of production visualization into people’s hands to help them achieve their creative vision. The app runs on an iPhone and is easy to use wherever your project takes you – on location or a small space that might be hard to navigate with bulky gear,” said Faith Sedlin, president of Fuzzy Door Tech.

“Our new scouting app lets the entire production crew envision how digital assets will blend into real-world environments before the cameras start rolling,” Sedlin continued. “It’s the perfect introduction to ViewScreen. It lets filmmakers scout a project using their own assets to get a feel for how the suite of tools works.”

ViewScreen Scout

ViewScreen Scout records how digital assets will look on location or a soundstage – before filming begins. The app lets you pre-visualize scenes, virtually walk through sets, block movement, visualize lighting and more. With the ability to visualize and animate digital assets and VFX in situ, reacting directly to what you see on your iPhone means capturing the right shots in fewer takes.

How it Works

ViewScreen Scout scans an environment, analyzes the space and then places and animates digital objects in a scene – in real time and at real-world scale. Users can download their own custom 3D assets from Box or from the Files app on their iPhone to plan and block a scene to decide if a location works, figure out the best angles for coverage, or even build new blocking and animation on the fly.

The Difference Between ViewScreen Scout & ViewScreen Scout Pro

ViewScreen Scout is designed for individual users who want to explore real-time scouting. ViewScreen Scout Pro is a production-ready scouting app designed for collaboration that works seamlessly with ViewScreen Studio, our suite of tools designed for television and film production.

ViewScreen Scout Pro includes shared AR rooms where the entire crew can collaborate, whether the team is together in the same location or working remotely across multiple locations. It also has more advanced features including live markerless motion capture and motion capture suit integration, the ability to export all VFX data (OBJs, EXRs, etc.) to accelerate post-production as well as customized software, support and services that can be tailored for a specific project.


ViewScreen Scout and ViewScreen Scout Pro run on iOS devices including any iPhone 13 Pro/Pro Max and higher or any iPad Pro M1 and higher.

Availability & Pricing

ViewScreen Scout is free during the Beta for users in North America (US and Canada), Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and South Korea. To request access to the Beta, visit viewscreen.com/beta.

ViewScreen Scout Pro integrates with ViewScreen Studio and is available for use on film and TV productions in North America (US and Canada). Pricing for ViewScreen Studio and ViewScreen Scout Pro varies based on the requirements and complexity of the production.
