EASILY SHARE YOUR 3D ENVIRONMENTS

IMPROVED WORKFLOW

Plan V Tools comes packed with tools that will simplify certain tasks within the editor such as creating storyboards, previewing VFX layers, measuring sets and props, taking screenshots and multi-pass renders, Object ID and adjustable depth pass are all one click away.


VIRTUAL CAMERA TRACKING

Easily set up a VR Headset, VR controller or IOS device as a camera tracker to record shots to level sequences. Android devices can also be used via “Virtual Plugin” by "ByOwlsStudio".
