A Great Freeware Program For StoryBoarding
The StoryBoard Pro program is freeware which means you do not have to pay for it but it also means it comes without support. The interface allows you to split your narrative up into sections. Name your section and give it a description before you set it up as a scene. You may add images to make your storyboard more useful or you may choose to have a written description in the image's place. You may indicate the shot or scene type and you may indicate what type of music still title or even what type of lighting will be involved. It isn't CPU (Central Processing Unit) heavy it uses the FileMaker Pro runtime engine.
Conclusion - Easy To Handle And Intuitive To Use
The StoryBoard Pro program is rather sophisticated when you consider its (free) competitors on the Internet. The Atomic Learning Company does not offer support but their website does have tutorials on how to use the software. The program installs easily and many of the tutorials are only there to help you understand the less intuitive aspects of the software.
