Anyone using Toonboom Storyboard?

Postby mikeboas » Tue May 07, 2013 11:01 am

If anyone here has used Storyboard, I have a couple questions. I use Toonboom Studio, and I'm considering using Storyboard for my next project.

It seems to be a program made for drawing on wacom, not scanning pencil images. I usually do storyboards on paper, then scan, so that's my first adjustment.

I'm wondering what my options are after the storyboard/animatic stage is done. Once you layout your storyboards and time the animatic, is there a way to pull that project into TBS for timing purposes? Or do you have to start over?

Following up on this Mike. Sorry that nobody's checked in yet. There's a few people here I'm aware of that use Toonboom for storyboarding. I was hoping someone would share their expertise.

Probably the best thing to do would be to email the company and see what they have to say about the process. My feeling is I don't see why you wouldn't be able to incorporate a previously drawn storyboard into their software. Toonboom Storyboard and in particular Storyboard Pro is the industry standard for creating boards in the biz. Check with them and see what they say about it.

By the way congrats on winning 2nd place in the Script-a-Palooza competition.

Ha! Thanks.

I was hoping for some objective reviews, rather than talk to a salesperson at Toonboom. But thanks for the advice.
