This paper describes a prototyping environment for rapid application development. We combine existing AR-technologies with a component-based 3D animation library and a scripting API. Through the development of an interface to a high-level 3D modelling system we are able to use this visual tool for modelling and basic animation features in MR design. This provides content experts with a powerful tool to quickly design and test mixed reality prototypes. We consider applications in the area of
