Live2D Inc. Announced on September 19, 2023 (PST) the Release of Latest Version “1.6” of Official VTuber App “nizima LIVE” with Updates Including Hand Tracking Support.
“nizima LIVE” is an application that allows anyone to easily move Live2D models in accordance with facial expressions and movements, making it easy to use even for VTuber beginners.
nizima LIVE 1.6 supports Hand Tracking, allowing you to move the hands of your Live2D model.
The high quality hand movements were developed with the full cooperation of Kanbutsu Himono, a Live2D modeler and VTuber.
Even for Live2D models that do not support hand tracking, anyone can use hand tracking immediately without updating the model by selecting the hand items that suit them from the default hand items (6 in total).
You can use nizima LIVE by going to the Main Menu > Camera Settings > Advanced Settings and selecting Hand Tracking Camera.
Special effects can now be applied to Live2D models and backgrounds.
More than 15 types of effects, including mosaic, chromatic aberration, and blur, can be applied to over 2 trillion patterns. Also, using templates, you can create rich screens at the touch of a button and save your settings.
You can use nizima LIVE from the main menu > Effect Settings.
Upgraded Live2D Item Functionality
Live2D items that were previously moved by tracking the Live2D model being followed can now be moved by camera tracking. Live2D items created with the previous specification can still be used.

In addition, the following updates have been made
