Open Brush, a derivative of Google's VR painting app Tilt Brush, is now available for PC VR headsets. The VR community created Open Brush using Tilt Brush's open-source code available on GitHub.
- Google announced earlier this year that it will discontinue its own work and development support for the Tilt Brush.
- By open-sourcing the app, Google allowed community creators to develop their own versions of the popular VR experience, where users can create colorful paintings and animations in 3D.
- Open Brush launched on Oculus App Lab for Quest in March and is now available on Steam for free.
- Unlike Tilt Brush, Open Brush has full mixed-reality support and a Fly tool in advanced mode for flying around scenes.
- Its creators plan to add support for a community-created Poly replacement, called Icosa Gallery, so people can share their creations. Google said it will shut down Poly, its 3D object library, on June 30.
