Suspension of sales and service for Live2D Euclid

 

As of Today, Tuesday, October 16, 2018, we will terminate subscription sale and service for current Live2D Euclid software (new download and PRO version trial for Editor & SDK) which was released in April 2017.

At Live2D Inc. we started developing Euclid in 2014 and officially released in April 2017. Since the official release, we have received positive feedbacks for Euclid's revolutionary expression. On the other hand, we have also received many requests relating production costs and application areas, and we have continued to meet these requests. However, we have concluded that in order for for Euclid to realize "2D expression that moves like 3D" and be used widely, fundamental change in specification and dramatic evolution are necessary.

Meanwhile, there is enormous room for further improvement and expansion remained for Live2D Cubism which is in its growth stage in Japan and abroad. In order to meet the needs for Cubism in various fields such as video production, games, VTuber, Cubism too is required to dramatically improve its efficiency and expressiveness.

Under these circumstances, in order to deliver the best Live2D technology as quickly as possible to as many customers as possible, we have concluded that it is best to focus our limited development and support resources on Cubism and integrate Euclid's technology and expressiveness into Cubism.

We truly apologize to everyone who have used Euclid 1.x series and supported its development and expansion efforts.

Lastly,


Since foundation of Live2D Inc., we have been developing software of the highest value to users working on 2D animation. It is our mission to realize new expressions with technology and to provide value to creators, and it was this passion that pushed us to start development of Live2D Euclid four years ago. Our passion for "2D expression that moves like 3D" has not changed at all, and we will continue our research and development to provide the evolution version of Euclid in the future with the aim of nurturing Live2D into a technology that parallels with 3D.
