Facebook brings animation tools to its Quill VR painting app
From TechCrunch - February 8, 2018

After having declared last year that the app would receive no future updates,Facebook is delivering a big update to its VR painting tool Quill.

The update expands on Quills initial promise, expanding it from being a platform for designing static scenes to one that can handle dynamic animated ones. The new updates adds the ability for artists to craft and edit frame-by-frame animations inside VR, as well as the ability to copy and repose models in a way that enables the beautiful creations of Quill to come to life.

Quill has a very unique visual style that doesnt make it a perfect fit for every use case, but there is something really enchanting about the way the product now takes an old-timey animation style and pairs it with wispy 3D models.

The product was one built internally at Oculus Story Studios simply because they really needed something like it and it didnt exist yet. When Story Studio shut down last year, the fate of the app was thrown into doubt with Oculus specifically stating that the app wouldnt be receiving any more updates.
