Create movement with the built-in 3D camera with thru-the-lens view. Set start and end positions across panels to add camera moves that pan, zoom and roll in 2D or 3D space. Easily see camera safe areas (4:3 and widescreen).
Import 3D models from FBX, Alembic, Collada, OBJ, 3DS. Mix 2D and 3D in a 3D space where assets interact the way you expect. Position layers and 3D models anywhere you want. Animate layers and add movement with a 3D camera.
Time your panels. Add motion per layer and create impressive camera moves across panels. Add unlimited soundtracks, cut sound, reposition, and edit volume keyframes. Create real-time transitions. All with smooth playback.
Import scripts from Final Draft and standard image, vector and audio formats. Export layered panels to Photoshop, storyboards to PDF, still images and movies. Export animatics or send to Avid, Premiere and Final Cut Pro via AAF, EDL and XML. Export projects to Harmony for 2D animation production or FBX for 3D. Support for Flix.
Pitch your story to a group using Pitch Mode. Collaborate on a team by splitting your project for different team members, and merging the changes back into a master project.

“There really isn't anything else like Storyboard Pro on the market. Drawing, editing, and organizing panels is a breeze with this storyboard software. Storyboard Pro offers a host of exporting options to suit your production. For me, its ability to export Harmony-ready scenes is a huge time saver.”
“When I'm trying to lay down a story, the last thing I want is an overbearing interface that gets in my way. You'd expect Toon Boom's Storyboard Pro, with its rich functionality, to have a cluttered interface - but you'd be wrong!”
