Moviestorm’s VR previs tool, FirstStage, is now out of beta and available as a general release from the Moviestorm website.

The new content creation platform has been developed “to enable creatives and subject experts to take full control of their creative process by providing an intuitive VR-based ‘natural user interface’ toolset.”

FirstStage is aimed at “fast iterative exploration and testing of production ideas, whether for film, TV, theatre or games” and has tools for set creation, scene animation and virtual camerawork. It is intended as a tool to “explore, test and communicate ideas to the wider production team in order to improve quality and reduce production cost and risk.”

Users can jump onto a virtual stage from anywhere and communicate ideas and solutions to others as images, video, or a VR experience.

FirstStage works with a standard VR setup connected to a gaming PC, and with a free trial and a personal licence available for $10 per month.
