The Lightning Artist Toolkit is a suite of tools for frame-by-frame, hand-drawn animation in XR—with the goal of making creation in 3D as expressive and intuitive as drawing in 2D. Prototype apps support Vive, WebXR, HoloLens, and ARCore/ARKit; it can also be a useful complement to apps like Tilt Brush, Quill, and AnimVR. Its output is readable in any 3D graphics application and ready to use in real-world production scenarios, starting with the short film Jenny in the Self-Checkout Line.
