Flipside Alpha Update #9

- by John Luxford

Continuing our focus on bug fixes from last week's update, we've made lots of little improvements again this week too. But we also have one new feature we're excited to share:

Sky's the limit

You can now upload your own 360 photos to change the skies in Flipside! Combined with our blank set, this means you can use any 360 photo as a custom environment for your shows.

Flipside supports both mono and stereoscopic 360 photos in either PNG or JPG format. Stereo photos must be in "over/under" mode (left eye on top, right eye on bottom).

This opens up a world of new show possibilities, and is step one on our way to completely custom set importing. We can't wait to see where you guys take Flipside next!

Bug fixes

Here's what we managed to improve for you guys since last week:

  • Improved keyboard controls for camera editing: Pressing 1, 2, 3 now respects the current latch setting (cut or move), but you can override the latch via C+1 or M+1 combos to specify a deliberate cut or move.
  • Imported props now support a much wider number of material settings, so your props should be looking better than ever.
  • We made more fixes to the slideshow, which now supports loads of video formats, as well as photos, YouTube links, Dropbox links, and live streams over RTSP and RTMP.
  • Lots of smaller behind-the-scenes fixes.

We're moving fast, and we have lots more coming up too that we can't wait to share with our amazing creator community. Make sure you share your creations on our Discord chat, our community forum, or using the hashtag #madeinflipside on Twitter.
