An animatic is the next step in the storyboarding process which involves adding sound, camera movements, animation, and scene transitions.

This chapter includes the following topics:

Timeline View
Changing the Panel Duration
Setting the Camera Frame
Animating the Camera
Animating Layers
Transitions between Scenes
Playing Back Your Animatic
NOTE: This chapter explains the 2D functions of storyboard animatics. Refer to Working in a 3D Space to learn how to create 3D movements with 2D layers and 3D models, as well as how to set up 3D Camera moves.
