Getting started

Discover the Interface

PocketStudio’s workflow is designed to guide the user in the process of creating a 3D movie through a series of intuitive steps.

The first step is to log in. This creates a connection to the cloud server and this is what keeps your projects in sync across all of your devices.

In the desktop application, the workflow is composed of a series of screens, each one of which representing a step in the movie creation process.

  1. Sign Up / Sign In
  2. Create projects and share them with others
  3. Create, open and edit 3D scenes
  4. Cut 3D scenes into sequences
  5. Watch the sequences back to back in real-time or export the movie to video

Sign In View

When you open the desktop application you are presented with a login screen.
