Storyboard Service Pack 1
Toon Boom Animation has released Service Pack 1 for Storyboard and Storyboard Pro 1.5. Aside from performance improvements, the pack includes new features for creating, exporting and working with storyboards. An Optimize project command has been added to remove unused elements and compress drawings, or flatten all drawings in a project. Users also have the ability to create one-frame panels, or to apply commands and operations to a selection of panels, such as resetting the camera, renaming scenes, or copying and pasting camera positions.
Other new features provide more options for PDF export, added panel navigation preferences, and a Save Project option. Users can now select layers throughout a selection of panels, with alterations including show/hide, rename and flip. Changes exclusive to the Pro version of the software offer movie exports, improved imports of Final Draft scripts, and the ability to optimize bitmap export.
