FirstStage is your flexible friend!
It is a virtual sandpit for creative productions
It has functionality that supports everything from previsualising a film or planning a theatre production, through to animation layout or finished gamified training experiences.
It does not mind how much detail is needed
It can be used to quickly test an idea, or deliver broadcast quality videos or VR experiences. It encourages agile iterative development, and the level of detail is up to you.
It has tools for quickly crafting placeholder 3d models, or you can import high fidelity assets. You can record placeholder partial mocap using your headset and controllers, or high quality Rokoko Smartsuit animations. You can output images, a quick edited video sequence, or a VR player experience. You can work alone, or remotely collaborate in real-time.
We have a solution to suit your needs
FirstStage uses VR making the user experience natural and accessible. However, we at Moviestorm fully appreciate that some potential tool customers might initially prefer to be service clients, and let someone else operate the tool whilst they direct the vision, until they are comfortable to take the reins.
