Live2D developed by Cybernoids is the world’s first technology to enable 3D processing of 2D images. This technology is compatible with a wide variety of handhelds and smartphones. Live2D is already used for games that take advantage of the unique hand-drawn illustrations.
Live2D creation tool comes in two versions, allowing to adapt the content by either polygons or through vectors. A 3D engine is used for version polygon based to enable quick and fluid movements even on mobile devices.
For the moment, Live2D is used for games based on dialogues with limited movement, but within a year or two, Cybernoids plans to change its tool to enable you can use it to animate characters in 360°.
