MasterpieceVR announced the release of Masterpiece Studio, a 3D content creation suite that combines 3D modeling software Masterpiece Creator and 3D rigging software Masterpiece Motion. Masterpiece Studio uses virtual reality and machine learning that makes it possible for any creative without technical 3D modeling skills and animation experience to make 3D content in minutes.
"Masterpiece Studio is a first of its kind VR creative suite that is a cost-effective solution to rapidly go from idea to usable 3D assets," said Jon Gagne, CEO, MasterpieceVR. "The suite's feature set lets creators make professional 3D assets extremely fast and can be adopted into an existing workflow in just hours."
"Masterpiece Studio is an exceptional creative tool for our Viveport users who want to be immersed in their creativity. This VR software is a real game-changer for 3D content creation - letting anyone learn, create, and animate in 3D," says Bjorn Book-Larsson, VP and Head of Viveport.
Masterpiece Studio immerses the user in their creation in scalable 3D. Masterpiece Creator's 3D modeling tool complements and enhances existing professional workflows. It is intuitive and much easier to learn than traditional 3D modeling software. While Masterpiece Motion lets users quickly rig, skin, pose and apply pre-made animations to their model.
"Motion dramatically improved the time we spent rigging characters that were both humanoid and non-humanoid. Painting skin weights in VR has to be one of the most naturally intuitive ways I've ever rigged a character," said Nathaniel Smith, associate producer, Darkslope. "In a hyper-competitive industry where turnaround time is everything, I can't see us letting go of Masterpiece Studio anytime soon."
Masterpiece Studio has all of the features of the creation tools of the original MasterpieceVR and Motion apps, with the addition of: Layers - Create expansive & detailed professional projects with unlimited clay and mesh layers; Scene Graph - Sort, select, modify every object in your scene easily; Apply Pre-Made Animations use our ever-expanding library of animations.
The system is compatible with most professional 3D programs, including 3DS Max, Maya, ZBrush, Substance Painter, Marmoset, Blender, Medium, Tvori, Flipside, and more.
The free and professional subscription version of Masterpiece Studio can be downloaded at MasterpieceVR and on Viveport, Steam or Oculus.
