Create Better Content
When you make a film, every moment on the screen matters. Get the story right from the start with software that supports your story development process no matter what form it takes.
Take Control in Pre-production
Do you tell stories through live action, animation, CG or stop motion? Storyboard Pro lets you see and develop story in context with the rest of the film sequence. Framing, timing, thumbnails and pre-editorial control let you maintain consistency while you visually unfold the story, analyze and make adjustments before you get to production.
Storyboard, analyze and make adjustments on the spot
Bring in scripts and sound, location photos and other images, vector graphics, and 3D models. Draw storyboards to break down the show into shots and sequences, set timing and layout, and provide camera direction. Review and interactively revise timing, camera angles and visuals.
Send to Production
Put all the elements together and deliver the story to production
Export scenes that include sound, 3D and camera moves. Send layered panels to Photoshop, save to FBX or PDF storyboards. Export animatics or send to editorial via AAF, EDL and XML. When producing animated series, create assets that can be reused and built on in Harmony.
Produce and Co-Produce Animated Films
How you approach animation depends on the technique you choose, the complexity of your pipeline, and the type of production. Harmony lets you stay true to the vision by combining drawing and animation tools in an artist-driven workflow that can handle any type of production, whether you are producing a film independently or working with other studios.
Produce animated stories in any style
Work with traditional artists, create paperless frame-by-frame animation and design basic to advanced cut-out characters. Or use a combination of styles and composite with other types of assets like 3D, live action and rotoscoped content.
Work in context and make revisions faster
Productivity tools let you make universal changes on the fly and do revisions fast. Art and animation plus compositing and effects tools mean you spend less time going between different applications and see final results earlier in production. It's easier to make adjustments and maintain quality with all your tools in one place.
Access shared assets from a centralized database
Automate additional processes with Harmony Server. Create users and set access. Share data and securely control production. Create scenes from Storyboard Pro projects and batch render in the background. And oversee projects that have multiple Harmony artists simultaneously working on a single animated scene.
