Description: Festoon Software products allow you to save up to 30% of production time and bypass the need to access a physical dome or planetarium to develop and test iterations of your fulldome or VR content. Products come in four different packages, all accessible on desktop and in VR.

Review: While I am far from the best person to be reviewing what is essentially a planetarium content maker I was surprised at how easy ‘Festoon’ was to use and the range of features it offers, including life-casting to the virtual planetarium cinema. I am sure that someone will find it worth every penny of the rather high £85 price tag. I even found that I could make a view some of the content in the 4 planetarium environments on offer. While I don’t think you should pay extra for the Festoon Player I am sure someone will. If I can use this, I am pretty sure anyone can.
