Live2D Cubism Editor (2D modeling & animation software for creators)

Cubism Editor is a software tool that empowers creators to turn static 2D graphics into 2D models. It consists of Modeler for 2D modeling tool and Animator for animating the model.

If you wish to control your Live2D models real-time on game/app platforms, Cubism SDK middleware is available for game/app developers and publishers. The game and app titles shown in Showcase section are made with the Cubism Editor PRO.

2D Polygon Mapping

Live2D model is composed of texture assets. Each texture asset is mapped with editable 2D polygons specific to its shape. Manual mapping and manipulation of 2D polygons can be extremely tedious and time-consuming, but Modeler is equipped with powerful efficiency tools including Magnetic Mapping and Dust Removal which substantially speed up the mapping task.

Powerful Editing and Numerical Control of Motions

Once all texture assets are mapped with 2D polygons, use Modeler's powerful editing tools to manipulate texture assets into desired forms. Among those tools are Coordinate Editing which lets you collectively manipulate texture assets on a curved mesh or on a rotation axis. Visual-based manipulations made in Modeler are automatically converted into numerals so that such manipulations can be controlled with given motion parameters, making the model fully configurable and interactive.

Texture Assets Assignment

Texture assets (e.g. hair, clothes, etc) can easily be added, switched, or replaced, often without any additional mapping or editing of 2D polygons. This makes creating variable models extremely easy, and if you have enough variables, you can create a fully configurable avatar system like this (link>> barcode Kanojo).

Animation Tool Dedicated to Live2D Model

Once a Live2D model is created with Modeler, import the Live2D model(s) into Animator's timeline to configure and program movements (motion tracks) using motion parameters associated with each specific Live2D model. Animator lets you create motion tracks with familiar user interfaces, such as visual animation tools, keyframe-based timelines, and a stage where you can drag-and-drop models. It also has interactive functionalities including Auto Lip-sync, in which Animator automatically generates lip movements according to an external voice file assigned.

Workflow of the Modern Digital Era

Animator takes advantage of digital production. To list a few, motion tracks can be archived to build a library, which you can use and apply to models as you see fit. Despite dealing with 2D objects, Animator can change its camera view as if you are dealing with 3D models. You can also load multiple models in a same stage, allowing parallel and concurrent editing for easy scene-management with sophisticated stage effects.

System Requirements - Windows:

Pentium4 3GHz or faster 2GB memory or more (8GB recommended) Storage*
Internet connectivity GPU: OpenGL3.3 / GeForce 8 or better* QuickTime7*
Windows Vista/7/8.1

* Requires 5M for install and 500MB or more for temporary usage depending on length of motion tracks.
* Software may not function properly when running with an on-board GPU (e.g. Intel HD Graphics)
* Outputting movies is only available with 32bit version of Animator due to QuickTime support limitations.


System Requirements - Mac OSX:

Core 2 Duo of faster 2GB memory or more (8GB recommended) Storage*
Internet connectivity GPU: OpenGL3.3 / GeForce 8 or better OS X 10.7, 10.8, 10.9*

*Requires 5M for install and 500MB or more for temporary usage depending on length of motion tracks.
* Outputting movies is only available with 32bit version of Animator due to QuickTime support limitations.
* The software runs on 10.10 (Yosemite) but is unable to output movie files due to the OS no longer supporting QuickTime for Java even with the 32bit Animator.
