Its 'behind the scenes' power and filmmaker friendly controls will empower you to experiment and discover the very best shots to capture each story moment.FrameForge is not about your mastery of the pencil but more how you can explore and see what your actual equipment will see. Find your artistry here and it's in the can!
FrameForge Previz Studio comes with well over one thousand World-Ready objects from a simple drag'n'drop library including everything you need to build exteriors, homes, offices, whatever. Searchable by name and organized in over 100 different categories, including 76 fully poseable actors in four ethnicities. These actors range from babies, children, teenagers to adults, and these adults can be aged from 20 to 60 years old.
Save time, money and nerves by exploring each shot before you start shooting. Previsualize your project with FrameForge Previz Studio 3 and your printed or exported storyboards will not only be optically-accurate, but they'll give your cast and crew a true representation of your directorial intentions, including the technical information required to create that shot on location.Get The Shots You Need
Need to start a crane shot from twenty feet up, then crane down around a school bus dropping off kids, and end with a push in tight on a doorway? With FrameForge Previz Studio, you can literally shoot all that just as if you were on location. You can even add in location/equipment limitations too. If you know that the room you'll be shooting in has an 8' ceiling, or you only have access to a 35-200mm zoom lens, you can enter those limitations for that set and FrameForge Previz Studio won't let you plan anything you can't actually do.Drag'n'Drop Set Building
Quickly and easily create sets that give real world information with stretchable snap-together walls. Add movable, hinged single and double doors that open to any angle, and movable, completely sizable windows. You can give the walls a specific length and height, or build it freehand then read back their measurements for live set construction. And when you're shooting, you can make individual walls invisible for a specific camera in order to get a shot you couldn't otherwise without compromising the integrity of your set (this simulates pulling out a flat on a soundstage). Built sets can be reused in other projects, and shared among other FrameForge Previz Studio users.Simple, Intuitive Interface
FrameForge Previz Studio's two major control areas will make you feel right at home. The Control Room is where you build your sets, place your cameras, and record shots for your storyboard. Then go to the Shot Manager to view and rearrange your stored shots, add movement arrows, shot framing boxes and additional descriptive text, and then even play sequences as slide shows with full control over individual shot duration.Present Your Vision
With FrameForge Previz Studio, the storyboard output is only a fraction of the value of the program. Of course, you can print your storyboards in grayscale or full color in any of fifteen rendering styles (normal, normal with outlines, cartoon, pencil sketch, pen & ink and 10 other fully customizable User Rendering Styles). But you can also view your shots as a slide show within the shot manager where you can tailor the duration of each shot down to a fraction of a second. You can export this slide show as a Macromedia Flash or QuickTime video viewable in any web browser or CD. Or perhaps you'll want to post the storyboard on the web or an intranet for your production staff as a collection of automatically generated HTML pages with full shot and textual information. Or finally, you can even export just the graphics to bring into Final Cut Pro, Keynote or PowerPoint for presentation.Real World Object Interactions
Pre-established relationships between objects make it even easier. Drag an actor into a chair or onto a motorcycle and he'll automatically sit appropriately. Or drag a gun over to his ex-girlfriend and she'll grab it in her hand. Don't like that exact pose? No problem; adjust any of the actor's joints as desired, either with pre-posed full and partial poses (only affects some joints, such as an arm or head), or choose direct joint control with resolution down to individual fingertips to communicate your emotional and visual intent like never before. If you build a new pose/relationship we haven't thought of, you can save it, reuse it, share it with other FrameForge Previz Studio users, and even optionally designate it to be automatically applied when those specific objects collide in the future.Casting Calls Made Easy
FrameForge Previz Studio 3 supplies thirty-two adult actors, thirty-two teenage actors, 8 child actors and 4 babies. They all come in four ethnicities, and the aldults can be further aged from 20 to 60 years old and they all can be dressed up or down from fully nude (except academic version of FrameForge) to a full suit or evening gown. Want more control? Adjust facial modifiers to give them a more roman nose, gaunter cheeks or other facial and body shape modifiers and choose among different hair styles and clothing to get just the look you want to make them unique. Save them as a new Character and you can simply drag and drop that new character into any scene. And while our actors come with many preset poses, you always have complete pose control of head, body, limb, and hand positioning to communicate your emotional and visual intent. Build and store a whole library of poses you create and share with other users.Online Script Supervision
FrameForge Previz Studio imports your formatted script from all major script formatting software and word processors. Once imported, FrameForge Previz Studio can automatically generate blank sets for every unique location, and you can associate your stored shots with text in the script on a line-by-line basis, allowing you to visually see your shot coverage like never before.
