Give Life to 2D

INFORMATION, December 7th, 2018

FaceRig Studio supports Live2D Cubism 3 OW, and license terms updated based on users’ revenue and follower count.

Support for Live2D Cubism 3 Original Workflow has solved known issues.

Holotech Studios SRL provides two groups of FaceRig products, FaceRig Classic/Pro for individual use and FaceRig Studio for commercial use.

FaceRig Classic/Pro and FaceRig Studio are two different products.

In terms of features, FaceRig Pro is virtually the same product as FaceRig Classic, except that FaceRig Pro allows monetizing videos on YouTube/Twitch regardless of the monthly revenue. However, its license terms do not allow using it for content exclusive to paid/subscription based services, such as the new YouTube Red, or other forms of commercial use.

FaceRig Studio is a different product which offers more features, including support for Live2D Cubism 3 OW, than FaceRig Pro/Classic. Plus, its license terms allow using it for commercial use and B2B solutions. See FaceRig’s website for details:

This article explains changes made for FaceRig Studio series. FaceRig Classic/Pro are not affected by these changes.

By supporting Live2D Cubism 3 OW (Original Workflow), FaceRig Studio provide more control over motion playbacks. It has also solved known issues, and using clipping mask, adding colors, switching motions are easier than ever.

To showcase its full potential, FaceRig Studio bundles two new characters GAOO and YUTAKA created by Live2D CreativeStudio.
