What is a TILT file?
A TILT file is a digital painting created in Tilt Brush, a virtual reality painting application developed by Google. It contains a 3D image, commonly referred to as a sketch, that a user created using Tilt Brush, a VR headset, and a controller. TILT files are typically stored in a user's Documents/Tilt Brush/Sketches directory.
Tilt Brush is a 3D painting application that allows users to don a VR headset and use the space around them as a virtual canvas. Artists can use Tilt Brush to create detailed 3D characters, scenes, and other images, which they can export and share in a variety of formats.
When an artist saves a Tilt Brush sketch, it is saved as a TILT file. Artists manually save sketches by selecting Tools → Save from Tilt Brush's palette. The sketch is then saved to the computer the user uses with their VR headset and appears in the user's Tilt Brush Sketchbook.
NOTE: Tilt Brush users were previously able to publish their TILT files to Google Poly, to share them with others. However, Google Poly shut down on June 30, 2021.
