Oculus hands back Quill to its creator

VR illustration and animation tool, Quill, has returned to its original roots under the ownership of founder Inigo Quilez and his company Smoothstep. The new Quill by Smoothstep app is available now

From October 18th, the Quill app will be removed from the Oculus Store and will not be supported or updated by Oculus. While creators can continue to use their existing Quill app after October 18, 2021, they will no longer have the ability to directly upload to Oculus Media Studio from the Quill app. Instead, they will need to manually upload their creations to Oculus Media Studio. Quill-generated content uploaded through Quill will continue to be available through Oculus Media Studio.

The Quill Theater application will remain available on Oculus Quest and Quest 2, but it will be rebranded as VR Animation Player.
