Description: StageX helps you to create scene of the future movie with simple and initiative tools because it is based on the principle of instinct learning. You just start to create your own movie as if you were on a set, and it doesn’t matter what exactly you make: a cartoon or a movie. Share the result with colleagues and stakeholders with the help of export previz tool. Get your movie or fbx format scene out there, then sit back and take all the credit. Get high-fidelity in under 5 minutes. Upload your 3d files and add animation, lighting, and VFX to transform your static scene into full animation movie.
Review: While I am not the most qualified person to review ‘StageX’ I can comment on how easy I found it and I have to say that even I was managing to make small 3D scenes in VR so I can imagine someone with a lot more creative talent and skill will be able to do a lot better. There are loads of props to play around with from and you can change the shape and colour of them all with ease. While there is only one character to play around with I’m sure most people will still be able to make some sort of storyline with that there is here. The good news is this program is cheap enough so anyone thinking of getting into animation using VR can try it. Hey, if I can use it, anyone can!
