Importing Images as Scenes


You can import one or more images and have Storyboard Pro automatically create a new scene for each. This can be useful when you have a series of bitmap images that you need to include in your project, such as backgrounds or scanned storyboards panels.

The following image formats can be imported in Storyboard Pro:

  • Portable Network Graphics (.png)
  • Photoshop Document (.psd, .psb)
  • Truevision Targa Image (.tga)
  • Tagged Image File Format (.tif)
  • Bitmap Image (.bmp)
  • Jpeg (.jpg, .jpe, .jpeg)
  • Sillicon Graphics Image (.sgi)
  • Toon Boom Vector Graphic (.tvg)
  • Toon Boom Scan (.scan)
  • Toon Boom Optimized Bitmap (.opt)
  • Y'UV frame (.yuv)
  • PAL frame (.pal)
  • By default, each image you import using this method will be imported as a separate scene. However, you can make storyboard import each image into a specific act, scene, panel and layer, creating the structure of your entire project in one go.

  • By default, images are imported as bitmap textures. It is possible to vectorize images upon import—see Vectorizing Images on Import .
