Project Settings Preferences

The following settings are applied to new projects created with Storyboard Pro.

Parameter Description

General

Default Panel Length

The default length of a newly created panel (in seconds).

Disable Project Name Length Limitation

For compatibility with Storyboard Pro, the project name length is limited to 23 characters. Selecting this option removes this limitation.

Save New Project in Single File Format (packed file)

Saves new projects in single file format with the following file name extension: .sbpz. The project is saved in a zip file.

Default Field Chart

Sets the field standard for the project.
Vector Layers

Pixel Density

Determines the amount of pixels to store in textured brush strokes for each pixel that displays when the drawing is not zoomed in or scaled up. For example, at 100%, zooming in or scaling up textured brush strokes will make them lose texture quality. If set to 200%, textured brush strokes can be zoomed in or scaled up until they're twice their original size without losing picture quality.

Bitmap Layers

Width

The default width of the canvas when creating a bitmap drawing layer. The percentage is relative to the width of the project. Its default value, 200%, makes the width of the canvas twice the width of the stage.

Height

The default height of the canvas when creating a bitmap drawing layer. The percentage is relative to the height of the project. Its default value, 200%, makes the height of the canvas twice the height of the stage.

Pixel Density

Determines the amount of pixels to store in textured brush strokes for each pixel that displays when the drawing is not zoomed in or scaled up. For example, at 100%, zooming in or scaling up textured brush strokes will make them lose texture quality. If set to 200%, textured brush strokes can be zoomed in or scaled up until they're twice their original size without losing picture quality.

3D Models

Scale Factor

The default scale factor to apply to a 3D model when it is imported into your project. You can enter a decimal value between 0 and 1 to make newly imported 3D models appear smaller than their original size, or a decimal value greater than 1 to make 3D models appear bigger than their original size.
