A New Approach to Interactive Video
Liquid Cinema allows filmmakers, journalists, advertisers and educators to create and distribute sophisticated interactive video experiences on traditional 2D screens and VR headsets. It puts easy to use tools in the hands of creators, while giving digital content providers an out of the box solution to distribute interactive video content via the web, mobile and VR devices.
Built for VR
Liquid Cinema takes interactive traditional and spatial video to the next level with the most sophisticated players currently on the market. On the VR side, Liquid Cinema was designed from the ground up to support storytelling in 360 degrees by rendering graphics, texts and interactive menus live in 3D space with six degrees of freedom over the picture allowing content in VR to adapt to the viewer’s gaze. It makes 360 videos fully interactive and that is just the beginning.
Combine any type of media on timeline
Liquid Cinema can play any kind of media you throw at it: 360, 360 3D, traditional 2D and 3D film and even panoramic stills. Unlike other players, all these formats can live in one timeline allowing Liquid Cinema to combine traditional and immersive media into one seamless experience. This opens up incredible creative possibilities. Imagine a traditional film shot going through a car window into the interior where it morphs seamlessly into a 360 immersive experience, spawning interactable visual elements that react to your gaze. Liquid Cinema is all about flow to help you unlock your creativity to tell your story.
Make your audience see what you
want them to see
Liquid Cinema solves one of the biggest problems in VR storytelling: directing attention. Your audience looks around and in the next scene they miss an important action because they are facing the wrong way. Liquid Cinema solves this problem by expanding the language of VR with a revolutionary concept: Forced Perspective. It ensures that your viewer will never miss an important piece of action ever again. Best of all it is so seamless that the viewer doesn’t even notice. Forced Perspective is a game changer for narrative VR and just one example of how Liquid Cinema gives control back to you the filmmaker.

Designed to support interactive immersive video

Liquid Cinema even allows you to live render fades to avoid ugly compression artifacts that can ruin a VR experience. We have looked at every possible detail and have jam packed Liquid Cinema with features that allow you to take storytelling in VR to a whole other level.
Author in VR
Liquid Cinema was conceived to author interactive video for flat screen as well as VR devices. Creators can use a headset and controllers to instantly preview and place graphics, texts and menu elements in 3D space over the video.
True Multi platform Authoring
Want 2D graphics on the flat screen version of your project and 3D graphics in the VR version? Now you can have both. Liquid Cinema lets you customize the layout, size, and behaviour of each visual and interactive element for each individual platform in minutes. You can even make changes after your project has been uploaded and gone live!
True Multi Language Workflow
Liquid Cinema makes language versioning of projects easy and economical. Add as many SRT subtitle files as you want. Since all graphical elements are live rendered creating a new language version of your project is as easy as dragging and dropping the graphical assets of the new language into the player. Additional language assets are kept in sync so when you make changes later they are made across all languages and platforms. This unique feature of Liquid Cinema will allow you to redistribute and resell your interactive and immersive content into multiple countries and territories with minimal cost and effort.
