I came across this storyboard software on the net yesterday. It seems pretty basic, but it is FREE. And it's available for Mac (X and 9) and PC.

Heya,

For script writing i like to use Final Draft 6, and for my storyboarding i like to use 3D Studio Max 5. I like to do my storyboards in 3d and animate them because it gives me 100% control over the image, including lighting, focal lenght, depth of field, motion blur, camera movement, set building and much more.

Hey Bryan!

That's actually not a bad idea at all... Maybe I should get my
LightWave out of the closet again. Hmmm.. interesting!

Thanks!

Hey Rob!

Yeah would be a good idea to give it a spin. You should look into other packages too though for this kind of work. For example Lightwave is a good package altough i find it a bit too clumsy, and especially for pre-viz character work. For that reason i went with Max, Max 5 has Character Studio 3 built in so you can easily add characters in the scene and make them move around real easy. I'm busy developing my whole short in 3d right now as we speak, if your interested i could try and put those movies up on my site so you guys could see the progress? I'd be happy to do it for you guys. www.50yearsandamoment.tk for the link BTW.

C ya!

I think that would be very interesting indeed. Put em up! And you'll
probably get some feedback from some people as well.

Good luck!

Poser is popular among some folks. Much easier to master than a full blown 3D animation app. If full blown, the get Animation Master, one of the best 3d character animation programs on earth.

Are there any newer storyboarding software out there now? Just thought about it recently. Wouldn't mind checking one out.

Revisiting this cause I'm on the look out or some software but I couldn't find any Trial version of Storyboard quick and they're one of these companies that don't return emails.

So did I miss it or does anyone know of any other location where a demo version is available?

Cheers
Aaron

If you're interested in 3D storyboarding and want software which is similar to Poser but truly adapted to storyboarding you really ought to try out the all new FrameForge 3D Studio.

It is very impressive. You set the stage with the included 3D characters, sets, props, place your cameras, define shots and then export your stoyboard. Every set can be saved for future use, characters can be given any specific pose, etc. You can also import your script and link locations with sets, descriptions with specific shots...

The software is a bit expensive ($349) but you can check out a demo version.

Still not as fast as storyboading with a pencil and paper, but very impressive nevertheless ! ;-)

I'll check that out. It might not be as fast, but it will look better than my sketches ;) I think I need to take some drawing classes or something.

For Lady X I did some very quick ones using Illustrator and a Wacom graphics tablet. My freehand drawing is pretty poor but all I wanted to get across was various fight moves. The difference between using my method and plain paper templates is that I could erase and cut and paste to save time.

I really enjoy using Scriptware. It's a snap to learn, and after you register you can load the software onto all of your computers. I'm not sure if it is as feature packed as Final Draft, but it definitely gets the job done.
