Words from the company:
Truly completing the production pipeline, Toon Boom Storyboard Pro helps you take an idea and translate it into a visual story that will become a complete production, whether animated or live-action.

Its advanced features make it the tool of choice to create an entirely digital storyboard.

Easy to learn and use, Storyboard Pro mimics the traditional storyboarding process, navigating with just a graphic tablet pen in a user-friendly environment.

-Flexible motion-layer based panel display with dynamic camera capabilities.
- Complete set of drawing tools, including a pressure-sensitive brush tool when using a digital graphic tablet and pen.
- Customizable caption fields to insert fully searchable textual content, such as scene descriptions and comments.

The Review:
As we get closer to a truly paperless society, StoryBoard Pro is a superb tool to use in the field of making movie magic. Preferably used on a tablet computer with pressure sensitive screen so that you can draw and design the path your story takes. I must admit that the software is quite comprehensive and takes a larger than normal learning curve to use. However, someone in the field of movie making or even creating a story line would have no problem using this program.

The program uses layering so that creation and motion is easier to do. With automated viewing tools, you can make segments come alive. You can tie in audio tracks to specific sections of your production and then export your results in a number of ways. The program is very intuitive in that it understands the work and how it needs to be created and used, making the users job incredibly easier. The price is not for the faint of heart but then when you want the best you have to pay the price. I am not a movie maker but I do understand the ins and outs of this type of production software and I would highly recommend this program. My hat is off to this company and with very good reason.
