About Scenes

T-SBFND-005-002

In live-action productions, scene changes occur when the location of the action changes, such as from the bedroom to the living room, from the living room to outside, from outside to across town. In traditional animation, every time a painted background has to be changed or the camera cuts, a scene change is required, even if the characters are in the same location. For example, two characters could be talking face-to-face in a forest, however the trees behind each character would be different as the shot cuts from one character to the other. Each shot would require a new scene. A sequence of these scenes taking place in the same location could be referred to as an act.

In Storyboard Pro, panels in the same scene are grouped together by a dark grey bounding box.
