Description

I am loving learning how to use Previs Pro - Kate Cheeseman, BAFTA and multi-award winning director working in both film and television.

Filmmakers, directors, cinematographers, video creators, and screenwriters know that you MUST storyboard and previsualize your shots and scenes BEFORE you roll camera.

Now you can build storyboards using simple taps, swipes, and gestures that you already know.

Previsualize every shot in your scene AND every scene in your script.

Experiment - with 2D and 3D real-time views - to find the very best shot for your film or video.

PURCHASE OPTIONS

Annual - under US$10 per month average
Lifetime - own it forever

STORYBOARD FAST

With Previs Pro, quickly build a 3D set populated with buildings, props, and characters. Position your camera and lights for the perfect shot.

Add a second shot - perhaps a Close-Up or Cutaway - by just moving the camera into position. Add more shots until your scene is complete.

** Final Draft Import **

Import every scene and character from your Final Draft script. You’re halfway finished before you even start. Works with Final Draft 12!

STORYBOARD EASY

Experimenting with different types of shots is a breeze. Simply move the camera around the 3D set until you find your shot. Pan left, tilt up, dolly in, or zoom. Your view of the shot is always updated in real-time. What you see is truly what you get.

STORYBOARD ANYWHERE

Storyboard where and when inspiration strikes.

If you're in the middle of production and a shot isn't working, then pull out your iPhone and design a shot that does work. Send and share the new shot with your entire cast and crew. The best storyboard is the one in your pocket — that you can change, and share whenever necessary.

** Augmented Reality **

With our A/R feature, you can place your virtual props and characters into a real-world location - the streets of London, on a bridge in Paris, or your own backyard - and start building shots in the same exact location where you plan to shoot.

Can't get there to use A/R? No problem. Import a photo or image of your location into your shot and use it as a "proxy". It's the next best thing to being there.

STORYBOARD LIKE THE PROS

At some point, you need to turn your shots in Previs Pro into storyboards for your cast and crew. If you're a director, you need to create a shot list. If you're a cinematographer or DP, you need information on camera type, lenses, and aspect ratios. If you're doing it all yourself, then you need all this information.

With Previs Pro, you can export storyboards as printable PDF's or shareable graphics files. You can include as much rich data as needed, or show nothing but the Camera View.

No other software like it

I been looking for years to find an easy to use storyboard software and I have found it. This application has it all you want to import some 3-D assets into your scene you can ,do you want to modify the pose of a person it has a machine learning to be able to create new poses off of photographs do you want to change the expression on the persons face you can use is the facial capture built in the iPhone to change the expression and save it. no other software I can find has this all together, frameforge cannot hold a candle to the software. I paid for the lifetime subscription because of all the possibilities. I was finally able to create a scene that’s been in my head for ages but I always stumbled over the technical limitations of my ability to draw and quickly 3-D model my scene. I’m telling all of my artist friends and all of my writers friends they need to get this to storyboard. The controls took a few moments getting used to but they were very intuitive for a cell phone app ,this is better than any desktop app I have seen for storyboard. Do yourself a favor if you’re a person who thinks of stories all the time in your head you need to get this .I know the lifetime might be expensive but it will pay off. I can’t stress enough how amazing this app is download the trial or the free version and try it for yourself the proof is in the pudding

Nice but…

I like it, but could be better. I wish some figures can be expandable beyond the pose I am given. It is great I can get the subject to “look at”, but I also want to move the arms and legs. If I want the subject figure to gesture “crazy”, I can’t. The figure is rigid for it. If I want an old lady in walker, I will have to make one. Then, I ask myself why do I have the storyboard apps if I have to make one myself. I’d like also to be given the opportunity to adjust colors rather than adjusting through the hue and saturation which can change the window composition. Speaking of that, I’d like the subject to appear driving (should it be two hands, one, or just allow the legs to steer the steering wheel). For colors, why not add “the drop” to match up the color the production has the idea for rather than leaving it at the mercy of this apps?

I give it three stars, because I think YES, IT IS GOOD! Of the five, because it can be better.

Developer Response ,

We are always improving and updating Previs Pro. Since launch we've updated the app over 25 times and we'll continue to do so. Your comments are helpful and appreciated. We do plan some new characters and posing features soon. Stay tuned!

GAME CHANGER

As someone who relies heavily on references and visuals to truly piece together a scene, I use storyboards not simply to communicate to my department heads, but to help me dream. I have struggled to practice illustration and form to speed up my process, but I typically turn to programs like photoshop and illustrator to piecemeal ideas that I can layout in front of me. But the technical aspects are so slow and clunky that it is hard to stay flexible.

This program does all of that so efficiently that for the first time I feel like I’m actually playing in my storyboards. Rather than mechanically constructing from my head, i have the freedom to learn about my stories and my commercials as I go.

The fact that this app is so new only adds to my enthusiasm. If they stopped here it would be invaluable. The bugs must be forgivable in service of the intuitive features, and I am confident these will only continue to get cleaned up, while new features are added.
The poses and expressions, the ability to creat cast and set pieces, there’s more than enough to customize and not just give an impression, but really create something about as close to your vision as one could hope without literally just drawing it. It is truly a pleasure to find such a blend of efficiency and creativity in one tool.
