Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

“From one to four years.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“It should be easier to create 3D content, possible to collaborate seamlessly and share quickly.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“You can build scenes and character using a set of objects from the library or import models, objects and sounds; draw in 3D; animate in real-time; animate using keyframe; work with sounds on a timeline and in space; record sounds on a microphone inside VR; make photos and videos within Tvori.”

Will this software be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Cost may change as Tvori matures.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We invite you to ask questions. You will get an answer that may solve your problem and will make us aware of needed functionality and improvements.”

Tvori Update, v0.4—Puppet's Proportions and Tvori Player

With this update, we are introducing advanced Puppet customization. It is now possible to change body proportions and create unique characters. You can find inspiration from 5 new customized puppet's on our Shelf and get an idea for what kind of characters you can create.

This video shows how to change the proportions and work with brand new Puppet's Control Panel:

Also, with the current update, you can export not only animation, 360 or 2D videos but also your complete VR experience! This is our very first version of the future Tvori Player!

We updated the logic for locators. You can now use locator as additional control points for your puppet animation when a puppet is in the animation mode (Locked).
This should help a lot for facial animation, like eyes/eyebrows, animation of wings, fingers, etc. You are linking a locator to the required bone, Lock puppet for animation, and animate it as you used to do with existent control points.

What have been improved

Puppet
  • The functionality to change body proportions of puppets. Make elves, gnomes, and Slender men
  • A control panel for puppets with a bunch of buttons that help to customize
  • Optional controls for knees that you can enable from the control panel
  • Locators in a puppet are always active now even when the puppet is locked for changes. It will be easier to make custom controls for facial animation and other features on puppets
  • An ability to set a puppet in the T-pose with a single button click
  • The IK system is more optimized now. You can have more puppets on a scene
  • 5 customized puppets on the shelf to give you an idea what kind of characters you can make

VR Player
  • Functionality to export scenes as dedicated VR experiences that exist in separate executable programs that you can run independently of Tvori
  • Options to make a VR Player run in VR (Steam, Oculus) and in 2D

Tutorial
  • The interactive tutorial now has more videos inside that should make it easier to understand how to do certain things that tutorial asks to do
  • Tutorial has less internal errors that were interrupting people or making it not possible to complete the tutorial
Presentation in Play Views
  • A switch between cameras and play views with left and right arrow keys
  • When playing from a play view, pressing the left and right key switches you between other play views on a scene. Makes it possible to guide people in a presentation or a story

General improvements
  • When you're in a play or record mode connections between objects are hidden
  • Gizmos are faster now when selecting groups objects
  • Link visualizations are more optimized now. When there's a lot of objects with lots of links Tvori should run faster than before

Tvori Update—Play Views, 360 Photos, Tutorials, Transparency, and More

Play View
We significantly improved what was previously known as Play Area. Play View allows you to get immersed at an exact point and scale on a scene during play. It works in three modes now: Point, Standing Point, and Area.

Point immerses you in the position and scale of the avatar figure.
Standing Point does the same as Point but places your virtual head above the virtual floor at the distance of your real floor.
Area positions you relative to the actual tracking area of your VR setup, where the center of your tracking area is the center inside the area of Play View.

Keyboard
We updated the keyboard, it's now possible to switch between upper and lower case, navigate the caret, and type in symbols aside from numbers and letters.

It's possible to rename saves while in Tvori now.

Texts on Scenes
It's possible to put texts on scenes and edit them via a keyboard now!

Tutorials
We made 2 interactive tutorials. The first tutorial will start once for every new user. The purpose is to teach people the basics of Tvori—how to interact with objects, how to animate, how to move on a scene, how to load scenes, and how to use some tools.

Transparent Materials
You can make objects semi-transparent through the color palette now.

Semi-transparent Images (PNGs)
Import semi-transparent PNGs.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPSnYNvTEfs



Fog
Set the fog material to any objects through the context menu. You can also change the color of the fog.

Snapping grid
When the snapping is on, a grid of dots visualizes the distance between snapping points.

About This Software

Tvori is a VR storytelling and animation tool focused on making content creation in VR accessible, so you can test your ideas, create scenes, animate, and make characters come alive all within VR using straightforward, intuitively designed tools. Prior knowledge of 3D content creation is not required to get started creating in Tvori, and it’s easy to learn as you go! You can use Tvori to complete animated stories or use it as a tool for fast story prototyping, creation of animatics or movie previsualization.

Tvori has a library of simple shapes, props, and effects to use in your creations. Also, to speed up animation and the art creation process, we support import of objects, images and sounds.
If you’re a storyteller and just want to experiment with VR without the steep learning curve of complicated 3D software, a real-time animation mode is available. If you are a professional animator or a technical artist and want to have a full control over your animation, you can select a keyframe animation mode.

Tvori supports Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows MR.

Build a scene like this using simple shapes from the library and several brush strokes:

The house was made out of a bunch of stretched and colored cubes. The scene is based on Mustafa Gundam's illustration.

Create characters:

Based on Natasha Floksy's illustration.



Make scenes of different styles using primitives along with props from the library:

The top left scene is based on Quan Pham Tung's illustration.

Draw in 3D with virtual markers, brushes, and pencils:
