Bitmap Import Optimization

T-SBFND-002-012

Storyboard Pro allows you to create storyboards by importing scanned images or bitmaps drawn in another software. During the import process, images are vectorized and placed in a new scene in a vector bounding box as a bitmap fill. The bitmap image’s resolution can affect your project’s file size and the speed at which Storyboard Pro functions while handling your project. When importing bitmaps into a storyboard, there is rarely a need to use a high resolution as it will not increase the quality of your PDF or animatic. You should import bitmaps with a resolution close to the project resolution. For example, in an NTSC project, using a bitmap with a 720 x 480 resolution or a 72 dpi quality will be fine.
