Description: The fastest way to create animated shows. With your HTC Vive or Oculus Rift, you can produce your own animated shows in real-time, and even stream them live to Facebook, Twitch, or YouTube. Just jump inside the show, press record, and go.
Features include custom characters, sets, and props, multi-part recording and playback, live streaming via OBS Studio, a set builder to customize your sets, and director tools with an 8-camera switcher to control your 2D output.
Review: When it comes to animation apps in VR the big one is of course Mindshow. OK, so Flipside Studio isn’t as polished as that, but there is still a lot to love here like all the great characters there are to choose from and the 3D animations recording meaning you can move the camera around after you have finished recording. But there are also things I don’t like, the text tutorial being one of them. At the end of the day, this is free and it’s well worth messing around with even if you don’t have a use for it. These animation tools are a great use of VR and perfect for anyone wanting to make their own short films and Youtube vids.
