Flipnote Studio 3D Upgrade Turns Nintendo 3DS System Into A 3D Animation Studio

/EINPresswire.com/ Start to stockpile your creative juices, as Nintendo has released first details on the new features of animation software Flipnote Studio 3D.

To be released this summer as a free download on Nintendo eShop, Flipnote Studio 3D will give you the chance to play Nintendo 3DS games differently and devise 3D animated masterpieces with the simple aid of your Nintendo 3DS system. Check out the first details by watching the ‘Nintendo Direct Mini – Flipnote Studio 3D’ video on the Nintendo Direct website.

Flipnote Studio 3D follows up from Flippnote Studio on Nintendo DSi*, furthering the concept of turning any Nintendo, handheld console into an animation studio using a stylus to contrive simple or elaborate sketches, called Flipnotes. For those inspired by old-fashioned flip-pads which create the illusion of movement when flicked through, Flipnote Studio 3D is the virtual equivalent, but with the added benefit of 3D layering, and, as with the original Flipnote Studio, the ability to include audio and share creations with the world.

The key aspect of the application is the ability to create Flipnotes in 3D by arranging three different layers, before adjusting the 3D depth to a desired level. To help illustrate your artistic master work and bring it to life, an increased number of colours will also be at your fingertips.

Flipnote Studio 3D will allow gamers to showcase their creativity to others, with the functionality to convert Flipnotes into AVI files making it easier to share animations online, allowing friends a virtual exhibition! In addition, the application will boast its own online community services. Flipnote Gallery: Friends will be set up for animators to freely share Flipnotes amongst friends, while the introduction of a paid community service, Flipnote Gallery: World, will enable Flipnote users from across the globe to interact with each other’s works for a small monthly fee. A free trial for the first 30 days of use will be offered for this service, while Flipnote users who create Flipnotes that are highly rated by other users may receive their next month’s subscription for free.

In order for animators to get a taste for designing 3D Flipnotes, a selection of sample 3D videos have been created using Flipnote Studio 3D, and are now available for viewing via Nintendo eShop on the Nintendo 3DS console.

Launching this summer, Flipnote Studio 3D will provide gamers with a full animation studio in the palm of their hand, and in 3D. For the first details on the current development of this application, visit the Nintendo Direct website, or head to Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS for sample 3D videos.

*For Flipnote Studio users on Nintendo DSi, the current “Flipnote Hatena” services for Nintendo DSi and PC will end on 31st May 2013. Flipnote Studio users on Nintendo DSi will still be able to use the application to create Flipnotes.
