Ratings and Reviews
Rip-off. A lot of $$$; not a lot of functionality
Comes with 1 female silhouette, 1 male silhouette, 0 backgrounds, and some real basic director’s marks and arrows. Everything else is a paid upgrade. Each character is $2.99. Bundles range from $9 to $50. Wanna print? That’s a $10 upgrade.
You can not create characters. You can not create props. You can not draw on the storyboard. You can not create a cast or a set of locations.
When you zoom in, only one element zooms at a time. e.g. the background or a character.
If you color a character or element you have to use the color picker every time. This means every one is a little different color.
Sensational Filmmaking Production Tool!
Having worked with the incredible Storyboard Artist Studio Mac version for years, it was like Christmas time when this iPad app hit my new iPad's screen. It's phenomenal on the Retina screen! Ease of use - it couldn't be easier - upload to the Cloud or camera roll, instant playback with no stutters, all the features in the description are accurate - you can fully manipulate the size of background pix, included male and female figures and position in any direction and size with a swipe or a pinch - quick, fast, accurate and fun -- what more could we ask for?! Ties in with the Mac version and gives some of the feature films we're working on the opportunity to keep working wherever we are - get approvals and make changes as they're being spoken - A++++++!! Thanks for a GREAT PROGRAM - the new additions and iPad / iPhone support with SAS [Storyboard Artist Shot Assistant] and all the other goodies - FANTASTIC! Ties in to become the a superior system for boards with Final Cut Pro X and 7 along with the blow-your-mind Martini program from the PowerProduction folks - all I can say is thanks and thanks and - you get the idea :) !!!!
Very intuitive and usefull for indepentendt filmmakers
I have used some expensive apps for setting up scenes for camera shoots, but I wanted to use my iPad since it is usually with me. I never read a single instruction and made a complex scene in minutes. I especially like that I can use my photos fro the camera roll and place them in the backgroundbof my characters with a single tap on the screen. Sizing characters and changing orientationnis as simple as a pinch and drag. Finally, I can save the scene to my camera roll as a picture so I can email it to the folks I work with to show them what to film at a given location. One of the best software investments I have made. I have not used it for very long yest so I don't know about reliability just yes, but as of now ... Great job!
