    The Cinematic Studio Sample groups together a set of features that makes moviemaking a first-class experience within the Unity Editor, along with sample content to demonstrate their use.

    What does Cinematic Studio Sample include?
    • An updated version of Timeline, the backbone of any cinematic.
    • Sequences, a new workflow tool to keep your movie's editorial content organized, collaborative, and flexible.
    • Recorder, which outputs videos, stills, AOVs, and more.
    • Support for Alembic, a file format for complex animations.
    • FBX Exporter, which allows you to roundtrip content to DCCs.
    • Cinemachine, our camera system for framing and following cinematic action.
    • The High Definition Render Pipeline (HDRP).
    • And finally, MICH-L, a brand new #MadeWithUnity cartoon which uses all the features so you can see how everything works together.
    How do I get started?
    Go to the Unity Asset Store and download the free sample project using the latest release of Unity 2020.3 (LTS).

    Where's the documentation?
    • A downloadable guide (Cinematic-Studio-Sample-Startup-Guide.PDF) is attached to this post. It includes detailed instructions to install and set up the sample.
    • A series of tutorials is available on the Unity Learn platform to help you familiarize yourself with the sample and its features.

    What's the plan?
    This sample is starting life in the Asset Store. Once fully battle-tested, we plan for this sample to be more easily accessible via the Unity Hub and Package Manager, at which time the Asset Store version may be deprecated.

    How can I provide feedback?
    Start a thread in this forum and let us know what you think! Are you happy? Did you build something using the tools? Let us know! Are we missing something you need? Let us know! Found a bug? DEFINITELY let us know!

    We hope you're as excited to use these tools as we are to bring them to you.

    [UPDATE 20 July, 2021: New version 1.2.0 of the Cinematic Studio sample is now available on the Unity Asset Store.]
