Thank you for your patronage with pixiv! We have released the Beta Version of VRoid Studio, a free software to create 3D characters! pixiv https://www.pixiv.net/info.php?id=4729 2018-08-03T18:00:00+09:00 <p align="center"> <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20180803/980545024.png" id="og_image"> </p> Dear pixiv users, Today, we will release the Beta Version of VRoid Studio, a character maker that allows users to create, in easy steps, 3D model characters which can be used in various VR\AR platforms as well as the production 3DCG animation and games. <a href="https://vroid.pixiv.net/?utm_campaign=release_a&utm_medium=info&utm_source=pixiv" target="_blank">https://vroid.pixiv.net/</a> <b>◼︎ What is VRoid Studio?</b> VRoid Studio is an application to create 3D models of humanoid avatars (i.e. characters). This application runs on Windows and Mac and can be used for free by anyone. Once a user has created a 3D model, the user can export the model as a file that can be used in various 3D apps. The export format that the Beta Version of VRoid Studio supports VRM*, but more export formats are scheduled to be released later. A user simply has to create one character using VRoid Studio and they can use that character as their avatar on various VR/AR platforms that support the VRM format. This character can then be used as a virtual idol or a character in 3D video games. Users can utilize their characters for commercial purposes too, which means that the possibility of VRoid Studio is unlimited. The Beta Version, which is named "VRoid Studio Version 0.1.1", comes with only the basic features. We hope to receive feedback from users to enhance this application. ◼︎ System Requirement Windows 10 / 8 / 7 macOS 10.13 High Sierra / 10.12 Sierra Main Features of VRoid Studio Version 0.1 (Beta Version) ・Hairdo Modeling ・Customizing the eyes and the face ・Texture paint of the eyes and the face ・Creating facial expressions and bones that are compatible with the VRM format ・Exporting the project as a VRM file *VRM Format: an open source common file format for handling 3D avatar <b>■ VRoid Studio's Unique Traits</b> (1)Procedure Hair Design Feature: Allowing users to create a hairdo model as easy as drawing VRoid Studio's hair design feature allows users to create the hairdo of a character simply by using the pen tool and adjusting the parameter. Move the pen tool to create a 3D hair tuft which will appear according to each pen stroke. Users can then alter the parameter in order to adjust the hair tuft's thickness and direction as well as the curl of the hair ends. Adjusting the parameter takes only a simple step of moving the slide of the parameter to the left or to the right. With this feature, anyone can operate the software and create an ideal hairdo based purely on intuition, without having to learn about 3D modeling beforehand. <p align="center"> <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20180803/102186174.png"> </p> <p align="center"> <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20180803/730792461.png"> </p> <p align="center"> <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20180803/981895580.png"> </p> (2)Texture Editing Feature: Equipped with pen tools that support pressure sensitivity and layering VRoid Studio's Texture Paint feature enables users to create textures of 3D models (face and hair) as if they're using a painting software. Textures can be directly painted on top of a 3D object, much like painting an illustration, and the UV mapping is reflected in real time. Editing the texture in UV mapping mode is also possible, so users can always check the look of the textures on their 3D model as they continue to add details into the model. Additionally, VRoid Studio's paint tools are sensitive to pressure, allowing users to create various styles, such as light and shade. Users can also use layers. <p align="center"> <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20180803/633211678.png"> </p> <p align="center"> <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20180803/739251318.png"> </p> <p align="center"> <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20180803/863130057.png"> </p> (3)Adjusting the face and eyes of the character using a default model plus automatic application of VRM-friendly facial expression set Users can adjust each default 3D body part to create their character's face. Using the default 3D model as the foundation, users can move the slide bar to adjust face size, positions of the eyes and mouth, all in order to customize the model and transform it into their ideal 3D character. <p align="center"> <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20180803/692866270.png"> </p> By exporting the 3D model as a VRM file, VRM facial expressions that express human emotions as well as the bone of each body part will be applied automatically.

A "Shoutout" feature that supports creators and a "Rewards" service for creators have been released! pixiv https://www.pixiv.net/info.php?id=4700 2018-07-12T15:00:00+09:00 <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20180712/766053876.png" id="og_image" width="100%"> Dear pixiv user, pixiv will provide its users with a new "Shoutout" feature. This feature allows viewers of a live streaming session to express their support for the creator. pixiv will also implement the "Rewards" service which entails the payment of rewards by pixiv Inc. to creators that conduct live streaming. The rewards will reflect the amount of support (e.g. shoutouts and comments) that a creator receives during their live streaming session. Function introduction page: <a href="https://sketch.pixiv.net/lp/yell/?utm_campaign=release&utm_medium=info&utm_source=pixiv" target="_blank">https://sketch.pixiv.net/lp/yell/</a> <b>■ About the Shoutout function</b> The "Shoutout" feature is a feature that allows viewers to manifest their support for a creator during live streaming. Viewers are given 1,500 emoji to choose from and are allowed to send up to 5 emoji at a single time. Shoutouts are sent by viewers via the consumption of the viewers' pixiv Points*. <small> * pixiv Points refer to points that can be used to enjoy services provided by pixiv Inc. These points can either be purchased or earned through the use of services that require points (<a href="https://sketch.pixiv.help/hc/en/sections/360001134914">click here</a> for more details). Please note that this is a different service from the "pixiv Point" service that ended on November 1, 2015 and thus the two services are not transferable. </small> pixiv Points can either be purchased or obtained in exchange for rewards. Should you wish to purchase pixiv Points, please note that 1 point equals 1 Japanese yen and the smallest purchase that can be made on pixiv website is 1,000 points. You can pay for your purchases with your credit card (accepted cards are VISA and Mastercard). Should you wish to use your iOS App, the smallest purchase available is 120 points and in the case of the Android App, it is 100 points. Points purchased on pixiv website can be used both on the website and in-app. However, points purchased in-app can only be used in-app. <b>■ "Shoutout" feature's desktop look</b> Screen: Choosing shoutouts <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20180712/345064718.png" width="100%"> <p align="center"><img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20180712/574972423.gif">    (Inside the red frame: Choosing a shoutout emoji and setting the amount) </p> Screen: Sending shoutouts <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20180712/749198074.png" width="100%"> <b>■ "Shoutout" feature's in-app look</b> Screen: Choosing shoutouts <p align="center"><img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20180712/992326618.jpg" align="center"></p> Screen: Sending shoutouts <p align="center"><img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20180712/942373064.jpg"></p> Now that the "Shoutout" feature is here, viewers will be able to have a fun experience conveying their feelings to creators that conduct live streaming. These feelings include sentiments such as "I want to tell the creator how much their work-in-progress and techniques inspire me!", "I want to liven up my favorite creator's live streaming sessions!", and "The creator is giving their all for this work. I want to give them some 'refreshments'!" <b>■ About Rewards</b> The term "Rewards" refers to the rewards given by pixiv Inc. to creators based on the amount of support that they receive (e.g. in the form of shoutouts and comments) during their live streaming sessions. Creators will have to first consent to <a href="https://sketch.pixiv.net/live_guidelines" target="_blank">"Rewards Reception Terms of Use"</a> before activating the "Shoutout" feature and starting their live streaming session. By completing these steps, creators will be able to start accepting rewards. The amount of support received during a creator's live streaming sessions will be assessed monthly and translated into funds that will be paid to the creator as their rewards. Creators can keep track of their rewards <a href="https://sketch.pixiv.net/lives/rewards" target="_blank">here</a>. Rewards can be exchanged in order to get pixiv Points. Rewards amounting to 500 yen and above can also be obtained in the form of money. Should a creator wish to accept their rewards in monetary form, a fixed bank transfer fee will be charged to the creator. Sending more than 30,000 yen: 300 yen transfer fee Sending less than 30,000 yen: 200 yen transfer fee You can start using the desktop version of the new "Shoutout" feature from today. <a href="https://sketch.pixiv.net/lives?utm_campaign=release&utm_medium=info&utm_source=pixiv" target="_blank">https://sketch.pixiv.net/lives</a> The "Shoutout" feature is at the stage of gradual implementation on pixiv official apps and will be available for all users very soon. pixiv official iOS app: <a href="https://itunes.apple.com/jp/app/pixiv/id337248563?mt=8" target="_blank">https://itunes.apple.com/jp/app/pixiv/id337248563?mt=8</a> pixiv official Android app: <a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jp.pxv.android&hl=ja" target="_blank">https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jp.pxv.android&hl=ja</a> <b>■ Starting July 20th for 3 days, the online event "#pixiv夏の作業配信祭" (pixiv's Live Streaming Summer Festival) is coming soon!</b> In celebration of the "Shoutout" feature's implementation, pixiv will hold an online event called "#pixiv夏の作業配信祭" for three days, starting from July 20, 2018. The event will allow users to watch live drawing sessions by popular creators. <a href="https://www.pixiv.net/special/live-summer-fes2018/">https://www.pixiv.net/special/live-summer-fes2018/</a> Event Dates: July 20, 2018 (Fri.) ~ July 22, 2018 (Sun.) Participating Creators: Anmi / Ryota-H / refeia / sohin / Capriccio / CamomiCamomi / Naoki Saito / Sousou / Akihito Tsukushi / Kei Mochizuki / Mai Yoneyama <b>■ What underlies the birth of the "Shoutout" feature</b> During the development process of the "Shoutout" feature, we stressed the importance of delivering a feature that would allow viewers to convey their desire, which is to support a creator in their effort to complete a work. The decision to be a creator is a task that can be easily completed solitarily. However, the more a creator immerses themselves in their activity as a creator, the more they will be detached from their bonds with other people. By conducting live streaming sessions, a creator can change what tends to be a solitude moment spent working into an opportunity to communicate with their viewers. When a creator realizes that there are also other creators out there who conduct live streaming and there are viewers that support them, they will find encouragement to keep creating and the ambition to complete their works. The "Shoutout" feature was developed for the very purpose of enhancing the creators' ambition. Please use the "Shoutout" feature as a method to let the creators know, in real time, about your reactions and your wish to support them in their effort to complete their work.

Starting from the end of April, anyone can open a FANBOX! pixiv https://www.pixiv.net/info.php?id=4526 2018-04-01T13:00:00+09:00 It's pixivFANBOX secretariat. pixivFANBOX was created to provide an environment where creators active in various genres can concentrate on creative activities as much as they like. The service is going to be completely renewed on April 1st! After the renewal, creators will get a monthly income from supporters regardless of the contents they post. Also, starting from the end of April, anyone will be able to open their own FANBOX! <div style="text-align:center;"><a href="https://www.pixiv.net/fanbox" target="_blank"><img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20180330/776700530.jpg" width="640" id="og_image"></a></div> <strong>■ Important Changes</strong> <strong>1. A stable monthly income for creators</strong> Until now, during the months when creators were unable to post contents due to being busy or to poor physical condition, supporters were not charged and creators didn't receive any money. From now on, supporters will be billed every month and supporters will receive a stable income, regardless of the number of their submissions. <strong>2. Different support plans</strong> Now creators can freely offer different plans with different monthly fees, which allows fans to support creators by subscribing to a plan that suits them. <div style="text-align:center;"><img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20180330/712181055.jpg" width="280"> Cooperation: <a href="https://www.pixiv.net/fanbox/creator/2063338" target="_blank">Asahiro</a></div> <strong>3. Easy access to past contents</strong> The articles posted by creators before the start of support had to be separately purchased as back numbers, but the back number function will be lost in the future. Since you will be able to see all posts from creators from the time you start supporting, fans can get to know more about their favorite artists! Enjoy a brand new pixivFANBOX here! <a href="https://www.pixiv.net/fanbox" target="_blank">https://www.pixiv.net/fanbox</a> <strong>■ Anyone can create a FANBOX!</strong> FANBOX used to be a service accessible just to a few creators, but from now on anyone will be able to open a pixivFANBOX! We're planning the big change for the end of April. If you register your email address with pixivFANBOX, you will receive an email notification when the service opens. Do not miss your chance! <strong>■ Why a renewal?</strong> "pixivFANBOX" started as a "platform connecting creators and fans", and in order to create an environment where creators can devote themselves to creative activities as much as they like, we felt the need to focus more on fans wanting to support their favorite artists, and on delivering a more stable income to creators. Therefore, by offering a mechanism that directly and continuously supports creators themselves rather than purchasing works and paid contents, pixivFANBOX will be reborn as "fan community to support artists and creative activities". We will continue to work on improving the quality of our services even further. Please keep enjoying pixivFANBOX.
