Qt Design Studio
The UI Design Tool for UI Composition

Qt Design Studio is a UI composition tool that turns design visions into functional products - it's the place where everything comes together. It's also the best tool for adding that extra bit of visual magic to your UI design through animations, transitions, 3D and visual effects.

Go beyond basic prototyping

When we talk about composing the UI, we are not just talking about creating a mock-up with the existing assets. With Qt Design Studio, your assets become an UI composition ready to function.

Import your designs and turn them into code

Create UI designs with design tools like Figma, Adobe XD or Adobe Photoshop. Import them to Qt Design Studio where the code for the new assets and designs is automatically generated and ready to be used by developers.

Test and run your UI composition anywhere

Simulate and validate interactions and dynamic behaviors. Instantly preview and fine-tune your designs to pixel-perfection and test it on the target device. Everything built in Qt Design Studio is cross-platform by nature and can be compiled to any hardware or operating system environment.

More than a mockup tool

Qt Design Studio has features that transform your design into a fully functional user interface. It's no longer a click-through mockup. You can test, preview, and fine-tune your designs to pixel-perfection live on the target device.

One unified framework, one common language, fewer feedback loops, and faster iterations - with all this Qt Design Studio closes the gap between designers and developers. Check out the video to see what we talk about.

Switch from wireframing the prototype to delivering functional UI

Mix 2D and 3D together easily

Take your UI designs to a whole new dimension with native support for 2D and 3D graphics that you can mix and animate seamlessly. And no need to differentiate between 2D &3D. Instead, your UI can contain both types, and these assets can be used as controls if needed.

Importing 2D & 3D

Utilize premade components

Save time and effort by using ready-available component libraries. Qt Design Studio's component libraries contain both simple shapes and complex UI components to kickstart your UI creation.

Using components

Iterate fast using real hardware

Turn your designs quickly into interactive prototypes to validate and iterate the UI on target hardware. The developer can then take your functional UI and integrate it into rest of the application.

Validating with target hardware

Enjoy the automated code

Qt Design Studio generates the fully functional code from your design. You don't needlessly have to write a single line of code.

Designer-Developer workflow

The features that bring your UI design to life

Input methods

Use physical keyboard, mouse, custom hardware keys and touch screens with virtual keyboards and multi-touch gestures.

Visual Editors

Modify your 2D & 3D designs visually, with Qt Design Studio's intuitive setup, instantly familiar to users of other popular design software.

Merge productions from UI tools

Import assets from your existing design tools directly to the project in Qt Design Studio. We support all leading UI creation tools, such as Figma, Adobe XD, Sketch, and many more.

Timeline Animations

Use keyframe-based timeline animations to bring designs alive.

Customizable Visual Effects

Enhance your graphic designs with built-in and customizable visual effects.

Use 3D particles in your next-gen UI

Create and edit particle effects like fire or sparks directly in the tool.

Bring 3D elements into your design

Import 3D elements into your design easily. We support all leading 3D authoring tools like Maya, Blender & 3D Max, just to name a few.

3D Post-Processing FX

Utilize 3D post-processing features with different filters and effects for photorealistic visuals.

States Editor

Create, modify, and add transitions between the different UI states the user interacts with.

Flow Editor

Design the flows and transitions of how the user can navigate between the application views.

Scene Editor

Fine-tune your designs to pixel perfection with an advanced scene editor.

Editable Easing Curves

Consistently edit and define the speed and acceleration of your animations and define the animation easings freely.

Dynamic and Scalable Layouts

Scale as you like it: automatic changes in size or position of your UI elements to adapt to any screen size and resolution.

Prototype with JavaScript

Simulate Application Logic with JavaScript during the application design.
