At some point in the future this fee may be removed. The full version costs more but can be used in commercialised projects.

Notes

Please familiarise yourself with the following notes that accompany the above product details.

  1. Apparance Editor

Warning
An internet connection is needed the first time the Apparance Editor is used as it is separate to the plugin and downloaded automatically on demand.

Warning
The accompanying Apparance Editor is only designed to run on Windows. You may have some success running the Windows version under emulation but this isn't officially supported. In the future, support for remote connection from a Windows PC to the Apparance Plugin or Apparance Runtime operating on another machine (or device) may be added.

  1. Platform Support

Tip
Platform support will be added as required due to the involvement of platform owners and their need for publisher signed projects to get SDK access. Please contact us to discuss platform availability and how to get started on this process.
