Tools for Digital Comics
Panoply brings the visual language of comics to the Unity game engine, turning each panel into its own camera in 3D space.
Panoply is a tool for digital comics, cut scenes, or any kind of split screen storytelling using 2D or 3D artwork.
Developed by Opertoon, publisher of the interactive graphic novel Upgrade Soul, Panoply enables you to add captions, dialogue bubbles, and easily set up sophisticated multi-panel layouts. Every transition is calculated in real time, so the player/reader can step forward and backward in the story smoothly and whenever they like, without waiting for animations to start and stop—making Panoply fully compatible with the Digital Comics Manifesto.
