Great idea, app crashes

Really great idea. Unfortunately, it seems to require online access. When turning off location services then turning it back on, app freezes on startup. Only fix seems to require online access in order to un-freeze which limits functionality (remote location shoots with limited or no internet). Until that's fixed it's difficult to fairly rate the app as its use is too limited to stage or locations with reliable internet. Again, really great idea that could use some improvements, but the freezing issue needs to be resolved first.

Seems great

Maybe it’s just mine, but the camera freezes before I can actually set up a shot. I get blurry pictures or just a shot that’s not correctly framed. Like the 3D models because I cannot draw!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for reaching out, sorry to hear you're having an issue. Its best if you email me at so that we can work through your issue. I've gotten a few reports of camera issues. Take a look at [settings > privacy > location services > system services] and make sure “Compass Calibration” is enabled.

Great PreViz Tool

I’m currently developing a shot list and storyboards for a short film, and this app makes my life so much easier. Easy to use and works really well.


-A great in-app purchase would be expansions to the people and objects we can use. e.g. People sitting, running, kneeling, etc. and basic furniture like chairs and tables.

-I can’t figure out how to remove someone from the frame without just force quitting my app. Is there an easy way to reset the frame that I’m missing?

My storyboard artist and I have been taking weird, awkward selfies to try and figure out 3D perspectives for her to reference as she makes her 2D drawings, so this app is a lifesaver. A few updates will make this a truly indispensable tool.

Thanks so much for the review and the feedback!

- To delete a character swipe across them (We know this isn't easy to discover and are considering a tutorial or reworking the feature)
- We hear you on suggestions for the models and plan on adding those. If you have other model requests please send them to We want the asset library to be driven by user's needs.

We'd love to see what you're creating. Feel free to share #blocker
